"Even if there was no BBI. Uhuru has messed the economy. And it won't get better with Raila or Ruto. The economic meltdown needs serious refixing."

"In another 1 or 2 FYs, almost all internally generated revenues will go towards servicing debt & other non discretionary items. BBI devolving more funds blah blah is kudanganya wanainchi."

"Maybe we change the Constitution by deleting the phrase 15% to 35%. The minimum close will have to be complied to! Otherwise, your assumption is premised on the good will of National Treasury with blessings from the house in the hill."

"No Constitutional amendment needed. You can already give as much money as you want to counties so long as it doesn't go below 15 percent. It's not that hard to understand ."
