The people of Kiambu County are staring at one of the most embarrassing times in their history as leaders shift to blame games over the recent crisis in which the government spent billions of money on what can be termed as non issues.

The Senate Public Accounts Committee revealed on Thursday that governor Waititu’s government had spent close to Ksh3 billion on activities like administration of Benefits to the retired President, coordination of State House, Free Primary Education and support of South Sudan’s Peace Keeping process.

Waititu has said the budgetary allocation were made by former governor William Kabogo in the 2017/18 Financial Year. Speaking during an interview on KTN, he said they only started using the money in November 2017.

But William Kabogo has come out guns blazing and told the governor to stop shifting blame. He said that he got no clue on what is contained in the documents.

“Shame on Waititu trying to shift blame. Ask your assembly for this information. I’m not surprised that you got no clue in what is where.” Kabogo said on Twitter.

During the Senate meeting, Waititu had said there was an error in the documents because the county had used national government templates to prepare their own documents.

The whole expose has left the governor with egg all over his face, with some people questioning his ability to deliver as governor.

Already there have been calls for the arrest of the first time governor, popularly known as Baba Yao and whose intellect has been subject to many questions.

“If there is no credible explanation, we will ask Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji to investigate and prosecute those involved in what looks like a clear case of theft of public funds.” Senator Moses Kajwang, the chair of the Public Accounts Committee told a local daily.

The Auditor General has been given 45 days to get to the bottom of the mess.
