Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has responded to claims that her government spent money on “State House Affairs.”
In her resposne, the Kirinyaga county boss called for the resignation of the acting Integrated Financial Management and Information System (IFMIS) director, Stanley Kamanguya.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Waiguru dismissed the allegations that the county allocated millions to cater for State House affairs.
According to her, the issue is “obviously untrue, unfounded and intended to grossly mislead the public for malicious purposes.”
Waiguru asserted that Kirinyaga followed the proper procedures and has since generated the accurate reports from the IFMIS for the financial year in question.
“These official documents are available for inspection and were the basis for all County expenditure duly approved by the Controller of Budget. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of accounting would know that there cannot be a budget line for the said State House Affairs in the budget execution report at County Level,” Waiguru exclaimed.
Waiguru now calls for the resignation of the director on claims that the data was manipulated.
According to a review released on Monday, eight counties including Kirinyaga had set aside funds for functions which belong to the national government.
The other include Kitui, Kakamega, Garissa, Kwale, Lamu, Nyamira, and Samburu.
According to the review, Kirinyaga county made allocations for State House Affairs (Ifmis code 704000000) and Government Advisory Services (703000000).
This was revealed after Kiambu County Governor Ferdinand Waititu last week appeared before the Senate with documents that revealed the allocation of billions of shillings to functions of the national government.
