Nakuru - Nakuru County governor, Kinuthia Mbugua, has said that he will not allow any money to be returned to the Treasury without being put to use.
Speaking on Wednesday in Nakuru during the swearing in ceremony of five new executive members and two service board members, the governor said that the County residents have high expectations on the nominated ministers.
“I will not allow any money to be returned to the Treasury from the County executive offices because a lot still needs to be done,” he said.
The governor was also quick to caution the new County executive members that they should not misuse the powers bestowed upon them.
He further said that he will not tolerate any squabbles that may arise among the newly appointed ministers of the county.
“These new offices should not be treated as a private assets because they are only supposed to be used to render service to the public,” he said.
Mbugua said that his government will not hesitate to fire any executive member found misusing the resources entrusted to them.
He added that the executives should also develop a culture of visiting the public at the grassroots level saying this will help them stay informed on what is expected of them.
“The public is really expecting a lot from you and that is why you have to be innovative in whatever you do,” he said.
The governor also said the newly sworn in executive officers are the representatives of the County and that he is ready to work with them.
The new executive members include, Rachael Wanjiku (Ministry of Lands), Stanley Chepkwoney (Ministry of Agriculture), Catharine Kitetu (Ministry of Education), Stephen Kiplang’at (Ministry of Communication) and Ann Nyambura (Ministry of Public Service).
Others were Waithaka Mutiti and Peter Mwirania who were sworn into the Public Service Board.
