    Emonyo Yefwe International is based in Kenya. There are clear weakness in management control and irregularities in the use of public funds. There is unreliability of accounting and fiscal data.
    This calls for enhanced capacity to monitor performance, awareness building to stakeholders. Organizations which can partner with us, on the above and in monitoring fiscal policy development and budget implementation tracking will be welcome.
