Corruption in Counties abnormal, Auditor General complains

13 October 2016, 19:11 Victor Tinto


Nairobi - The Auditor General says that corruption in Counties in Kenya is too high and that something must be done to adress it.

Auditor General Edward Ouko said Wednesday that he will release a corruption report for the 47 counties where he says graft is rampant.

Ouko said a good percentage of the KES 300 billion set aside for the 47 counties to individually run county activities ended up in individuals’ pockets.

He spoke at the launch of the Parliamentary Initiatives Network guide to audit reports at a Nairobi hotel.

" The office of the AG requires more resources to audit all financial statements and prepare reports. We also have to ensure we have verified the information we gathered,” he said.

" Unfortunately we have a small team and also minimal resources, hence, the process has remained slow.”

" We urge everyone to monitor public assets as well as government expenditure. If everyone plays their role, we will save a lot and Kenyans will have the best services,” he said.

Corruption has been mooted as a major challenge for the growth of County governments in Kenya.
