Lobby says Taita Taveta has per­formed poorly

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The dis­mal de­vel­op­ment per­for­mance by the Taita Taveta gov­ern­ment is em­bar­rass­ing, a civil so­ci­ety mem­ber has said. Con­troller of Bud­get Agnes Od­hi­ambo ranked the county among the poor per­form­ers in the ex­e­cu­tion of the de­vel­op­ment bud­get. This is the sec­ond time the bud­get con­troller has ranked the county poorly re­gard­ing growth. Taita Taveta Hu­man Rights Watch chair Haji Mwakio on Wed­nes­day last week blamed the county ex­ec­u­tive and as­sem­bly of fail­ing the com­mu­nity. Mwakio said mas­sive cor­rup­tion has marred the county ad­min­is­tra­tion.
