Migori County Governor Zachary Okoth Obado has sympathized with his Kiambu counterpart Ferdinand Waititu for what he argues as deliberately getting roasted by the senate committee.
Governor Obado who appeared before the senate committee to respond to audit queries on Monday May 13, 2019 faulted the Moses Kajwang-led committee for exposing the governor for what they knew very well was impossible.
He said it having funds released from the treasury to the Counties involves a process which has to be genuine, and thus allocating funds for peace keeping in Somalia and state house operations was not possible.
He said it was not easy to delete what the senate had already imposed into the minds of people out there, who now view the governor as corrupt.

He accused the Public Accounts and Investment Committee of summoning governors to ‘roast’ them. He suggested the senators should support devolution and objectively oversight the governors.
