Vihiga MCAs Spent Sh1.2 Million On Lunch, Auditor Reveals

Vihiga County Assembly
Auditor General, Edward Ouko

The auditor general, Edward Ouko has questioned the manner in which Sh1.2 million was used by Vihiga ward representatives for lunch.

The MCAs, he says were double paid as they also got their sitting allowances, noting that the payment was irregular.

”Consequently, the lunch allowances of Sh1.2 million were not a proper charge to public funds,” Business Daily quotes him.

”It was not clear how the rates were arrived at or why they were paid the lunch allowances yet they were earning sitting allowances,” Mr Ouko said.

In the 2015/16 financial report, the auditor general also notes that the county assembly made irregular payments amounting to Sh8.9 million. The payments, he says did not reflect in the assembly’s statements.

Also in question is a Sh8.1 contract awarded to M/S Budget Furniture Limited. The said company delivered and fitted a carpet at the said expense but did not have supporting documents or receipts.

In 2016, Mr Ouko said that 24 counties could not account for Sh140 billion allocated to them by the national government.

He also noted that the accuracy of Sh4 billion receipts “could not be confirmed” and opening of 52 bank accounts not justified.
