A tough-talking Wetang’ula (poctured below) in a press conference at his residence in Bungoma town warned that his Ford Kenya sponsored government of Governor Wycliffe Wangamati had issued over Sh100million in the form of imprest which has allegedly not been accounted.
One MCA speaking on anonymity alleged that Senator Wetang’ula and his family members have over the years even during governor Ken Lusaka government blackmailed the county government to give them lucrative contracts or pay them cash allegedly for party protection.
Senator Wetang’ula couldn’t explain to the Ford Kenya fraternity the squander of over Sh6 million which was raised from unknown sources from Bungoma ostensibly to fund the campaign of Ford Kenya candidate in the recent Kibra by-elections.
The Ford Kenya’s candidates had over 800 agents yet the dude could only get 264 votes, Ford-Kenya members are asking what became of Sh6 million?
Joseck Khaoya from Kabuchai said it is time that Wetang’ula and his family relieved the county of the kind of circus that are involving the county funds in.
Bungoma County has been the home of corruption since the advent of devolution beginning with the infamous Sh1million non-carcinogenic wheelbarrows.
Christopher Wachilonga from center Kwanza in Trans Nzoia County says that many other white elephant projects such as the Sh100million chicken project and the skin leather tannery among others do not seem to portend well for the county.
