The governor of Makueni Prof Kivutha Kibwana has denied misusing money alloated to the county from the National Treasury. Addressing journalists in his office Kibwan said that the Sh156 million is the LTF money that was received on in March and spent without explanation or his knowledge.
He said six officers were suspended as a result and the matter is still being investigated. He said failure by the county to spend some of the money from the Transition Authority was caused by lack of time.
One of the dailies reported that the money from the Transition Authority for the construction of county offices remained unspent as at the end of the financial year June 30, 2013" "The position is that we had only ten days after receiving the money to identify suitable land, design, approve, tender and commence construction works which was not humanly possible," He said
