Pokot MCA wants Ed­u­ca­tion ex­ec­u­tive sacked for ‘di­vert­ing din­ing hall funds’

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

An MCA from West Pokot wants Ed­u­ca­tion ex­ec­u­tive Gla­dys Kiyapyap sacked over al­leged mis­use of her of­fice and de­lay­ing im­ple­men­ta­tion of projects passed by the as­sem­bly.

Sek­err MCA Thomas Ngole­sia said Kiyapyap did not im­ple­ment the projects the as­sem­bly pri­ori­tised and has in­stead di­verted the funds to other projects.

“In the year 2015 the county gov­ern­ment through the Ward De­vel­op­ment Fund allocated two mil­lion shillings to Marich Pass Pri­mary School for the build­ing of a din­ing hall,” he said.

“We passed it in the as­sem­bly and it was as­sented to by the gover­nor. We ex­pected the pro­ject to take off in July 2015 and be com­pleted in June 2016. The CEC has con­verted the funds to the con­struc­tion of an ad­min­is­tra­tion block.” The of­fice is not a pri­or­ity, he said. The Star vis­ited the school and found pupils eating un­der trees in the scorch­ing sun.
