Stop be­ing hos­tile, Wa­home tells Wairia

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Kan­dara MP Alice Wa­home has ac­cused Mu­rang’a Gover­nor Mwangi Wairia of dis­re­spect­ing res­i­dents by fail­ing to an­swer au­dit queries.

The county chief ap­peared be­fore the Pub­lic Ac­counts and In­vest­ments Com­mit­tee last week .

Wa­home said Wairia’s “hos­til­ity” shows he is try­ing to evade ac­count­ing for pub­lic funds.

She spoke at Kirun­guru Pri­mary School in Kan­dara town on Fri­day, when com­mis­sion­ing class­rooms re­fur­bished by the Con­stituency De­vel­op­ment Fund. Wa­home also pre­sented a Sh300,000 cheque to Kirun­guru Sec­ondary School for the com­ple­tion of the science lab­o­ra­tory.

“No one has called him a thief. But his tem­per when asked ques­tions on the au­dit queries shows he is hid­ing some­thing. Mu­rang’a res­i­dents are de­mand­ing an­swers. He should un­der­stand that fight­ing the Se­nate won’t leave him off the hook be­cause we will see to it that he re­sponds to all queries,” she said.
