4 MPs want PAC to sum­mon CDF chiefs over au­dit

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

MPs at the Coast want the Na­tional As­sem­bly Pub­lic Ac­counts Com­mit­tee to sum­mon their CDF man­agers to re­spond to queries raised by the Au­di­tor Gen­eral’s re­port for 2013-14.

The au­dit re­port on CDF in­di­cates that mil­lions of shillings from the kitty can­not be ac­counted for. On Tues­day, the MPs said most of the queries re­late to bur­saries, re­al­lo­cated funds and pay­ments to con­trac­tors. They are Mvita MP Ab­dul­swa­mad Nas­sir, Jomvu’s Badi Twalib, Likoni’s Ma­soud Mwahima and Kisauni’s Rashid Bedz­imba. In Mvita con­stituency, Ouko’s re­port shows of the Sh20,172,661 in trans­fers to other gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties, only Sh5,631,193 had been ac­counted for.

In Nyali, the re­port in­di­cates the CDF com­mit­tee trans­ferred Sh2,425,555 and Sh15,081,450 to other gov­ern­ment units, but doc­u­ments to sup­port the ex­pen­di­tures were not pro­duced for au­dit.

In Jomvu, the spend­ing of Sh27, 354,465 could not be as­cer­tained, since re­ceipts, cash­book en­tries and re­ports were not avail­able.
