Suba res­i­dent asks EACC to in­ves­ti­gate bore­holes projects

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

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.
