Kenyans have expressed their displeasure over their governors’ performances and the way they have been spending funds allocated to the counties.

Following the revelation by government Auditor General Edward Ouko, Kenyans now want the County Bosses to be held accountable for every penny set aside for the counties.

Appearing before the Senate Committee on Public Accounts and Investments, most governors have had a hard time accounting for county budgets.

According to the Auditor General, eleven counties had allegedly spent millions of shillings on state functions during the 2017/2018 financial year.

The Auditor General raised a flag after Senators exposed Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s administration of spending billions of shilling for functions designated to the National Government.

According to the county statement, Kiambu allocated Ksh973 million for State House Affairs (Co-ordination of State House functions), which was dismissed by State House officials.

Referring to them as “M-Pigs,” Kenyans harshly criticized the governors for their “greed” to fraudulently acquire more money as their resident languish in poverty and deplorable conditions.

Last week, KOT started an almost similar hashtag #congratulationsmheshimiwa to shame leaders whose performance has been below the expectation.

The KOT sarcastically congratulated the leaders for a ‘good job’. They accused the leaders of forgetting the electorate and focusing on 2022  elections when they will rush back to the voters with false promises.
