Suba resident asks EACC to investigate boreholes projects
A resident of Suba South constituency has petitioned the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the provision of boreholes by the Homa Bay government. In a letter dated October 17, Gerald Dibogo, through Ahmednasir, Abdikadir and Co Advocates, claims the boreholes were sunk in the homesteads of a county official, an MP and an MCA. “This constitutes utter impunity and improper use of public funds, not to mention ultimately denying residents of Suba constituency the much-needed public utilities,” lawyer Martin Tebino said. He said the three colluded to divert the boreholes. “It is quite unfortunate that our leaders do not appreciate that we are under a new constitutional dispensation, where all public officers are under a duty to uphold the provisions of the constitution,” he said.
