Governors Oparanya, Muriithi Ranked Top in Revenue Accountability Index

Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has been ranked the best performing county chief in the latest research on County Revenue and Accountability Survey with a revenue growth of 100.6 per cent.

According to the findings released on Monday by the Consortium of Researchers on Governance (CoRG), Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi follows second at 94.9 per cent with Tharaka Nithi’s Muthomi Njuki and Makueni’s Kivutha Kibwana coming in third and fourth place at 84.7 per cent and 53.1 per cent respectively.

The report's findings depict a sharp contrast from the one released last week by the United Kingdom-based firm, All Africa Advisors (AAA) that graded Waititu as the worst performing governor.

Also negatively listed were Governors Mohamed Abdi (Wajir), Fahim Twaha (Lamu) and Cyprian Awiti (Homa Bay).

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua who coincidentally was ranked as the best performing county chief in last week's findings, is positioned at number 43 with an own revenue collection of -16.7 per cent in the study released Monday.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko who also featured in the London-based firm findings as the best performing leader was quite the reverse ranked 44 with a staggering own revenue allocation of 7.9 per cent.
