Siaya County Covid Millionaires

Published

A whopping Shs600 million have been lost – cant be accounted for in the executive wing. Siaya county assembly plans to summon Governor Cornel Rasanga, Senator James Orengo and CECMs to appear before the county assembly to let the cat out of the bag.

According to our source, a whooping Sh300 million for Lapfund, over Sh90 million for KRA statutory deductions, Sh77 million earmarked for county bursary, millions meant for county contracted workers wages and over Sh90 million for recruitment of Healthcare workers  cannot be accounted for by the Executive.

In the looming showdown, MCAs  are also bothered to get answers on the perceived controversial contents of the Siaya PMCs fund of which whereabouts of over Sh100 million are unclear.

Siaya County has lost over Sh2.8 billion to corruption since 2013, according to a senior Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) official. The commission’s Western Kenya regional deputy head, Danstan Aura, described the state of corruption in the county as worrying, saying 313 corruption cases have been reported to the commission since 2013. Out of the cases handed over to the EACC, only 67 have been assigned for active investigations.
