HAIYA!!! Homa Bay County sets aside Sh 10 MILLION to build Governor’s MANSION

Friday, the 21st 0f June 2013 - A leaked report of the Homa Bay County Assembly budget committee has brought to light the fact that the County plans to spend Sh 10 million to build a house for its Governor.

The report also revealed that the County has allocated Sh 7.5 million to build a similar residence for the Deputy Governor.

The construction of the two houses is reportedly an attempt to reduce time and commuting costs for the Governor, Cyprian Awiti, and his deputy Hamilton Onyango.

The County Assembly budget also approved to spend Sh 22 million to buy cars for Awiti and Onyango who are currently using their personal cars.

It’s not just Awiti and Onyango who are getting new ‘toys’ though because the county also plans to spend Sh 70 million to buy 10 Prados for the members of the Executive Council.

The county also plans to spend an additional Sh 2.5 million to construct a gym for the Ward Representatives.

Leadership is truly a sacrifice.

  1. I like that coz we'll know the incompetent county n definitely not from kikuyu land. Go jaluos spend even more.

  2. That's a lot - invest in income generating projects

  3. USELESS JALUOS SPENT MUCH NA MABIBI NA WATOTO WANATEMBEA UCHI

  4. Wamaitha & anonymous 9:38, ur all bloody useless. What the heck has this got to do with tribe? If we hear a similar story (and we will, after all, they're politicians) bt this time it's in "Kikuyuland" or "Kambaland" etc, will u still have the same sentiments? When mps were undeservedly advocating 4 more pay, who was @ the forefront? They were from all regions. Greed isn't limited by tribe. When David Rudisha wins,are u angry bcoz he's not one of 'your own'? When Wangari Maathai won the nobel, do u think there were Kenyans who were disappointed coz of where she came from? All u ppl who are blindly pro-cord or pro-jubilee make me sick. Where are the pro-Kenya citizens? Are there any left?

  5. "tunataka serikali itusaidie" kumanina nyinyi.

  6. anonymous 10:27 I wish I can give a million likes am tired of this tribal wars like anybody is benefiting from it I wish pple cud reason like mature pple

  7. Useless and spendthrift Luos at it again. This the reason they will never develop no matter how much devolution takes place or whoever becomes President. A lost cause really....

  8. THE DEVOLVED GOVERNMENT WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED THIS CENTURY BECAUSE WE WILL NOW WHICH PART OF THIS COUNTRY HAS BE MAKING KENYA LAG BEHIND. LET THOSE COUNTIES THAT WANT TO BUY PRADOS AND BUILD MANSIONS FOR THEIR GOVERNORS GO AHEAD BUT IN FIVE YEARS TIME, SOME COUNTIES WILL BE SUPERPOWERS WHILE OTHERS WILL BE BEGGING SERIKALI ITUSAIDIE

  9. wats the big fuss... thats actually very cheap compared to long term leasing or rent. those commenting otherwise, can u reason this is the same same house that will be used by another governor in 2060. thats is actually very cost efficient.

  10. I am not Tribal but I wonder what a coincidence that the two biggest counties in Luo land happen to be the biggest care free spenders on luxuries?

  11. There is something luo in the Kisumu and homabay counties

  12. I did know that Kisumu and H/bay are luo counties - no wonder !!!!!

  13. That is noty maent for luxuries but for development projects - You Sily governors and

  14. Yes the cash is for development and for luxuries

  15. No wonder watu wengine wataishi tu nyuma

  16. Was this the reason the governors and senetors have been fighting for more monies - nonsence

  17. Devolved wastage of our taxes

  18. Nyanchae (CIC) should tell us whether there are any guidelines as to how to spend the devolved funds

  19. Tunawacheck all you pigs wasting our monies -

  20. All the people we elected are PIGs save for uhuru, ruto and mutua

  21. I wish we had harmonized budget for basics or obvious comforts which runs across all counties to avoid misuse of public funds. Am a kale but the way these guys are using a lot for personal issues is so much irritating. PLZ LETZ TALK AS KENYANS..WONDERING WHEN THIS WILL HAPPEN.

  22. Compare with machakos. First they had an investors conference where they promised goodies for new investors in machakos. They then bought Subaru for there chief executives a car cheaper than Toyota prado. Can the Governor of Machakos continue with the good work. Our Kiambu county is heading the Kisumu & Homabay route.

  23. I agree that there should a legal framework that ensures justifiable use of the devolved funds to avoid petty misuse. Such provision should include an audit and justification of the use of funds, and percentage quotas on what should be allocated for various county projects(recurrent expenditure, development etc.). Without regulation , we will be otherwise devolving corruption, mismanagement, incompetence..........quite disappointed

  24. with no regulation there is no telling what extent a man can move to gratify the inner biddings of the flesh, there must be incentives to perform, repercussions to dissenters to motivate performance, productivity and promote the understanding of the gravity of their actions. Such checks lack in the Kenyan context and has resulted in the abuse of office......without these balances the events reported will not only be synonymous to specific counties but will infiltrate other counties too
