The Ward Development Fund (WDF) kitty in the counties is subject to never ending wars between the Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) and the County Executives over who will manage and/or implement the fund. These wars are all over the local media and they often involve the County Assembly refusing to pass the budget.
The clamor for development projects to be initiated in wards by members of the public has pushed MCAs to want to play a role in directly initiating and implementing projects. This has forced MCAs to push for the creation of the WDF under their armpits.
So we have a new article that we hope shall address key issues about the Ward Development Fund.
