Treasury taken to task over Danida funds

The government is on the spot for delaying the release of at least Sh830 million in grants from Denmark for Covid-19 war in the counties.

The funds were to be released through the Danish International Development Agency (Danida), which coordinates the country’s development projects and other humanitarian and emergency interventions across the world.

The National Treasury was to receive the grants and direct them to the counties’ Special Purpose Accounts for the health funds, and the Water Sector Trust Fund for medical supplies, sanitation and hygiene response in the Covid-19 hotspots, among other activities.

Although National Treasury Chief Administrative Secretary Nelson Gaichuhie said Treasury was in communication with the Danish Embassy, Council of Governors (CoG) Chairman Wycliffe Oparanya accused the national government of frustrating the disbursement of the funds.
