With the new Constitution and devolution a lot more about what should be done is now decided in the counties. At the heart of decision making is the county budget. No expenditure if it is not budgeted. That is the principle. So it is important for a journalist to know how and when the budget is formulated, to follow and report on the process. Then the Kenyan citizen will be able to judge by him/her self if he likes what politicians and administrators do.
