Nairobi - Governors should not fear audit exercises into public funds under control of county governments, Othaya MP Mary Wambui has said.
Wambui said governors ought to account and be responsible for funds and resources entrusted to them.
“If governors believe that they do not have any offence in management of public funds then they should not fear to be held accountable,” said Wambui.
Speaking in her constituency at Kiaguthu primary school during a prize giving day, Wambui said national Government is willing to increase county funds as she accused governors of not being genuine.

“To increase county funding does not need a referendum as some governors are demanding. We shall do it in parliament,” she said.
Wambui further lashed out at CORD leader Raila Odinga over the plebiscite stating that ‘he was not loyal to his country’.
“He should have the needs of his followers at heart. The cost of referendum is very high and Raila should advocate for such funds be diverted to Kibera constituency where he was an MP for too long and poverty level is still high,” she said.
“The referendum quest will definitely fall,” added Wambui asserting that Othaya constituents were not in support of any kind of referendum.
She further claimed that the CORD coalition was borrowing campaign funds from abroad in order to destabilize the government.
“They should take that money to schools and other development projects instead of funding political rallies which are adding no value to their followers,” said the MP.
