Governor Kimemia faulted by EACC over revenue collection

The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission has faulted Nyandarua County government’s use of casual workers in collecting revenue saying the move allowed the loss of revenue.
The County’s irregular employment of Governor Francis Kimemia’s advisors, whose names had to be forwarded for regularization, was also cited as a loophole that exposed the county to unethical dealings.
In a report on the Corruption Risk Assessment into the systems, policies, procedures, and Practices of the county executive and assembly, the EACC team noted a host of leakages of public funds, including impresses issued in arrears and shortfalls in revenue collection.
EACC Commissioner Dr. Abdi Maalim noted that contracted officers cannot be held responsible in cases of mismanagement encouraging the county to involve officers who have an engagement that has a legal basis.
