Residents of Trans Nzoia Friday welcomed Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani’s budget proposals saying it was a simplified one unlike previous ones which contained many technical connotations.
Though some faulted lack of commitment by the CS in putting up measures of re-starting the slow economic pace, others expressed optimism that the proposed budget will help to reinvent the economy in responding to the needs of poor Kenyans.

He said devolution of resources to counties should have been prioritized with a lot of emphasis on increasing manufacturing industries and creation of jobs to curb rural to urban migration.
