Uproar as MCAs give Sh1 billion for their expenses
The money was paid during the last financial year under Governor Francis Kimemia’s administration.
According to Speaker Ndegwa Wahome, county documents indicate money was sent to various suppliers’ bank accounts for ‘services’ rendered during ‘Nyandarua Investment Forum’.
The ‘services’ include water and beverages for delegates, comprehensive media coverage, state-of-the-art public address system, tents, red carpets among others.
The speaker demanded that the executive explains why the money was paid to various bank accounts for the services and yet there was no such function.
Mr Wahome said that the suspect accounts belong to people associated with the current leadership and it came to the limelight after banks refused to release the funds.
Contacted, Finance Executive Mary Mugwanja refused to comment on the matter
