Article 132 L of the treaty for establishment of the East African Community provides that there shall be budget for EAC organs and institutions to be funded by equal contributions by partner states, medications http://communityvet.net/wp-admin/includes/options.php but to date only 18.644.645 USD which is 44.5% of the contribution has been remitted to the EAC accounts

Previously the council of ministers resolved that all partner states should be fully paid by the 30th of DEC every year so that the community meets her obligations and operates smoothly.

Speaking on the issue Hon. Nancy Abisai who passed the motion to the assembly, stuff http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-includes/atomlib.php said Non remittance of the funds by partner states has completely distracted the activities of the community, http://cerlalc.org/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-order-item-meta.php led to nonpayment of service providers, as well as nonpayment of entitled allowances.

Hon. Abisai added that the mounting accumulation of arrears has seriously affected activities that depend on the funds of the community, and others that are catered for such as the lake Victoria basin commission, the Kiswahili commission and east African court of justice.

She strongly warned the 5th assembly of the EALA that the community might collapse if the arrear figures continue mounting.

The total contribution of all partner states paid is 41,890,538USD representing 44.5% leaving more than 24million dollars unpaid hence affecting the EAC integration process.
