13 January 2016, 08:04 Steve Njugunah

Nyahururu - Auditor General, Edward Ouko has accused Laikipia County government of irregularly using KES 2 580 290 to purchase household items in the 2013/14 financial year in cash contrary to public procurement and disposal regulations.

Ouko in his 2013/14 financial report says the County irregularly procured household items for the Deputy Governor worth KES 580 290 directly from a prominent supermarket.

“The County executive irregularly procured household items for the Deputy Governor worth KES 580 290 directly from Nakumatt Holdings Limited. The items procured were not officially taken on charge in the County government stores,” the report says.

The report further says another KES 2 million was used to purchase unspecified household items in cash contrary to public procurement and disposal regulations.

The purchases, the reports adds, were officially not entered in the County government stores.

Ouko further says the County government did not explain why the public procurement regulations and existing financial principles were ignored.

Efforts to contact the Deputy Governor, Josphat Kabugi or County executive committee member in charge of Finance, Joel Wamichwe were unsuccessful by press time.
