Wednesday June 6, 2020 – Kirinyaga County MCAs have rejected a budget proposal by Kirinyaga County Governor, Anne Waiguru, to furnish her office.
Waiguru wanted Kirinyaga County MCAs to approve a Sh 90 million budget to furnish her office with high-end furniture and cutlery.
Two-thirds of the House rejected the Governor’s memorandum in a tension-filled afternoon session.
Only eight MCAs supported Waiguru’s memorandum aggravating a political standoff between her and Ward Representatives.
The MCAs also tabled two motions of no-confidence against Finance Minister Moses Migwi and Chief Officer (Roads) Joseph Makumi, over figures in Waiguru’s budget.
The MCAs accused the two of incompetence and corruption with their impeachment motion set for tomorrow morning.
Waiguru‘s budget proposal comes even as the conditions of hospitals in the County turn from bad to worse.
Most hospitals look like cowsheds despite the Treasury allocating billions to the Kirinyaga County Government.
