Monday May 6, 2019 - Even before we resolve the issue to do with Kiambu County and its Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, over the dubious budget of more than Sh2.1 billion that was allocated to State House affairs, it has emerged that Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is also in the exact same spot.

Waiguru has joined a list of Governors who are expected to answer questions raised by the Office of the Auditor General (OAG), regarding allocation of funds to functions that are not mandated to County Governments.

Reports by the OAG have revealed that Kirinyaga allocated Sh344 million for State House affairs, out of which 327 million was spent.

Kirinyaga also allocated Sh50 million for “rail transport”, a function that is the mandate of the national Government.

Likewise, Waiguru and Waititu are not alone as Kakamega Governor, Wycliffe Oparanya, is also expected to face questions regarding the 2017/18 audit report that showed a budget allocation of Sh75 million for State House Affairs, out of which Sh29 million was spent.

Kitui County boss, Charity Ngilu, will be in a similar position as the OAG’s report showed Sh60 million allocated for State House Affairs.
