Council of Governors Chairman Isaac Ruto said by doing so, the government was contravening the Public Finance Management Act . "The Ministry of Health has broken the law by sending money for operations and maintenance directly to hospitals instead of depositing it to County Revenue Fund Accounts," Mr Ruto said.

The Bomet Governor said county governments were considering seeking legal redress. He said development partners like the World Bank, Danida and the national government agreed that devolved governments could release money to hospitals while awaiting reimbursement in order to avoid double funding. Mr Ruto said the Council of Governors would report the matter to the National Treasury and the Senate. He said the Public Finance Management Act applied to national and county governments. ruto pic
"The law says public funds can only be spent with the approval of the Controller of Budget," Mr Ruto added. He was speaking at Kiptulwa Dispensary during the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a Sh7.9 maternity wing. It is funded by the Japanese Government through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects.
Mr Ruto also said governors wanted more resources to enable them perform functions spelt out in the Constitution.
He said they appreciated the allocation of Sh5 billion Emergency Fund though "this is not enough". "We urge the Senate to ensure the increment of allocations because of the monumental functions county governments have been assigned," he said.

Isaac Ruto
Isaac Ruto is a member of the United Republican Party (URP), launched in 2012 by William Ruto, the current Deputy President of Kenya.
Under this party's membership, Isaac Ruto was elected Governor of Bomet in Kenya's recent 2013 elections. Ruto hails from Chepalungu, Bomet, and studied a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at the University of Nairobi. Whilst at university, Ruto became a student activist opposing policies of President Daniel arap Moi and thus came to be detained along with other student activists following the coup d'├ętat attempt of 1982. Ruto was elected MP to the Kenyan parliament in 1997, representing Chepalungu constituency. Between 1998 and 1999 he held the position of Assistant Minister to the Ministry of Education, and between 1999 and 2001 served as Assistant Minister to the Ministry of Agriculture. During the last year of the Moi administration, Ruto became Minister of Environment and Natural Resources. In both the 2002 and 2007 general elections of Kenya, he again won office for Chepalungu constituency. Throughout the course of this 10th Parliament of Kenya, Ruto worked as a member of the Administration of Justice and Legal Affairs Committee and, between 2008 and 2010, as a member of the Select Committee on Constitutional Review, supporting the formulation of the draft Kenyan constitution, which included strong provisions for devolved governance and was approved by 67 percent of Kenyans in an August 2010 referendum. In Kenya's 2013 general election, Ruto chose not to run again as MP for Chepalungu and instead stood in the gubernatorial elections, winning as Governor of Bomet County, alongside Deputy Governor Stephen Mutai.
In April 2013, Ruto was elected by the other Governors to be Chairman of the Council of Governors, a body set up by the Intergovernmental Relations Act 2012 to encourage consultation and cooperation between the national and county governments, and between county governments themselves.
