Sakaja: Missing cash is less than KES 66B

03 August 2015, 10:28 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - The National Alliance (TNA), Johnstone Sakaja has said the figure of cash government ministries allegedly misused could be less than the KES 66.8 billion that was quoted by the Auditor General in his report.

Speaking during an interview on a local TV station on Sunday, Sakaja said there is need to ascertain whether responses to account for the missing millions in various government ministries were incorporated in the report or not.

“We need to know if the responses to the queries were given on time, and whether they were incorporated in the report or not.

“If they were given on time and were not included in the report, then we will query the competence of the auditor’s office. The same applies to government accounting officers; if they did not give their responses on time, then we will be forced to seek for answers,” Sakaja said.

He said Parliament will summon Cabinet Secretaries and accounting officers from the affected ministries to get their side of the story before coming up with conclusions.

“They will all appear before Parliament. If someone went against the law, then he/she will take full responsibility as an individual,” the nominated MP said.

He called on Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to employ impartiality in the probe into the alleged misuse of public funds.

“PAC members should not consider their political alignment when probing this issue. The government is keen on rooting out corruption, and that is why they should be of great help,” Sakaja said adding that he had confidence in the new members of PAC.
