Kenyans know that the budget is an important policy tool for the government and the manner in which it is spent and accounted for a good pointer to both the quality and quantity of services that government can provide. Public expenditure in Kenya is governed by the constitutional provisions and supported by subordinate statutes and regulations. Article 229 (1) of the constitution of Kenya not only establishes the office of the Auditor General while article 229 (4) states the duties of the office and the scope of public bodies that are subject to an audit. This is important because it situates the work of the Office of the Auditor general within the constitution, confirming that performance of the role is a constitutional requirement.

The 2014/15 county budget process was plagued by many challenges, but most counties managed to produce Fiscal Strategy Papers for the first time, and many based their budgets in part on these papers.

In order to help citizens and organizations at county level engage with their budgets, we have revised and expanded our “16 Key Questions” tool from last year to include 20 questions. This was motivated particularly by a need to provide additional guidance when reading programme-based budgets (PBB), which are very different from the traditional line-item budgets Kenyans are used to.

Railways transportation has been a reality in Kenya’s economy for more than a century owing to the construction of the railway line from the coast moving westwards in Kenya and into Uganda. Together with transportation by road, the railway in Kenya comprises the main sources of transport of goods and passengers along Kenya’s main urban areas. In spite of the challenges that Kenya’s railways system has had since the mid 1980s, the railway line has remained a critical asset for establishment of a competitive transport system both for business enterprises and passenger services.
