EDWARD OUKO cornered as he forced to clear corrupt WAIGURU and WAITITU of any wrong doing even after ‘looting’ billions from State House

Thursday May 16, 2019-Auditor General, Edward Ouko has cleared Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, and her Kirinyaga counterpart, Anne Waiguru, and 9 other Counties that had been put on the spot over ridiculous budgeting.

This is after they were accused of spending monies meant for State House on State House functions.

Speaking during the launch of the 2018 Cyber Security Report by cyber firm, Ouko stated that the concerns raised by the senate committee were an issue of 'bad reporting' and not an issue of corruption as had earlier been speculated.

“It is just an issue of bad reporting or the information was slotted into a template which was not customized for that particular reporting of the county budget, so you end up with some budget heads from a template of the national government budget. It is not an issue of whether the counties spent money on those items, no,” Ouko stated.

“I think you have systems of accounting and then there is subsidiary reporting which is supposed to be done on the budget separately and meant to go to the County Assembly and this was really intended by the Treasury to allow the counties once they have the accounts, they align the budget heads,” he stated.

Other Counties that had been exposed by the Auditor-General's report are;
Kakamega, Kitui, Nyeri, Laikipia, Kwale, Nyamira, Samburu, Garissa and Lamu.
