County spends KES 30M on signboards

21 June 2016, 10:51 Marc Mbugua

Nyandarua - Nyandarua County Assembly has passed a motion to stop the Executive from random erection of signboards which so far are alleged to have cost tax payers over KES 30 million.

The motion was tabled in the assembly by Kipipiri Member of County Assembly (MCA) Michael Kirumba who said the tax payers were not getting value for their money.

He decried that apart from being charged exorbitantly at KES 30,000 each, some of the signboards contain misleading information as well.

“It is illogical to have a signboard erected at a cost of KES 30,000. The Executive should stop misusing public money on unnecessary expenses and concentrate on development,” Kirumba said.

He further noted that if the county contunues to erect signboards for every project it is undertaking, millions of shillings will go into waste.

“We have 25 wards in Nyandarua and if over 10 projects are going on and the contractors erecting signboard at the current cost, a lot of money will be wasted,” he added.

The MCA pointed that they are not opposing the erection of signboards for the projects, but that the fees should be reasonable.
