The Financial Year 2020/2021 was a unique year, characterized by tough health challenges
due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which in turn led to diminishing fortunes economically. The
content of this BROP is evident enough that the consequence of the pandemic had far
reaching impacts, not only to the household level where individuals suffered economically for
basic needs, but also to the county government which could not meet its revenue targets and
therefore affecting implementation of the budget. Largely the continued effects of the
pandemic will continue to affect the domestic economy and by extension Nairobi as a county.
The implementation of the FY 2020/2021 budget was not successful as envisaged, and
achievement of county development targets ware largely hampered by falling own source
revenues and delayed transfers by the National Treasury. Total revenue targets including
national treasury transfers amounted to Kshs 29.6Billion against target of Kshs 37.8billion in
the FY 2020/2021. This was largely attributed to nonperformance of own source revenues
which the outturn fell short of target by about 40%.
Total actual expenditure based on transfers from the County Revenue Fund and spending
from Appropriations In Aid amounted (Liquor Board) amounted to Kshs 30.1billion. The
transferred functions accounted for over 33% of the total. In the last supplementary budget
an amount in excess of 10.8 billion was allocated for payment of pending bills. The County
Government, however, remain resolute to increase spending towards development, in order to
achieve the development targets as espoused in the CIDP 2018-2022. Further, the county
remains committed to ensuring prudent management of public resources and operating within
the fiscal responsibility principles stated in the Public Finance Management regulations.
