Report reveals massive plunder of funds in counties


By SILAS APOLLOMore by this AuthorThe latest report by the Auditor-General has revealed massive plunder of public resources that could have otherwise been spent on development in counties. The report seen on Tuesday by the Nation, for instance, reveals how ward representatives irregularly spent millions of public funds on trips, allowances, leisure and constructions. EMPLOYEESRecords maintained by the Machakos Assembly failed to explain an expenditure of Sh119 million paid to staff as salaries. This amount, the report says, was inclusive of Sh44 million paid for unspecified and unsupported issues. In Nyandarua, the Assembly spent Sh23 million as daily subsistence allowances for MCAs and staff and hire of conference facilities for various House committees.
