As earlier reported by 411Kenya, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu faced the Senate County Public Accounts and Investments Committee (CPAIC) Thursday after it emerged the county incurred Sh2.5 billion abnormal expenditures. He was presented before the Senate with a financial statement that showed that Waititu may have allocated budgets for functions unrelated to Kiambu.
The governor went on to try and shift the blame on former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo saying that the money that is in question was allocated during Kabogo’s tenure.
“We were elected in August 2017. We started using this budget in November 2017. It is not us who did this budget, it was for the previous government by governor Kabogo,” he defended himself.
Responding to these claims, Kabogo has distanced himself from the whole situation. He said that Waititu lies without shame.
“He lies without shame. Now you know who was in school and who was not. Our appropriation/finance Act 2017/2018 is a public document available at the Government printers,” said Kabogo.
Ferdinand was given 45 days by the Senate to explain these expenses to the auditor general who will undertake a special audit.
