Nairobi - Parliament is on spot over unsupported expenditure of KES 79.5 million paid to travel companies for air tickets during the 2014/15 financial year.

The auditor general Edward Ouko's report for the year ended June 2015 discloses that the payments were not supported by crucial documents such as copies of confirmed air tickets, boarding passes and passport entry/exit stamps.

The report reveals auditors were unable to audit accounts for office and general supplies goods worth KES 81 million procured the Parliamentary Service Commission. The auditor points out procurement documents relating to fraudulent purchase of toners were held at the CID during the audit period.

"It has not been possible to confirm if the goods were lawfully and effectively acquired under Article 229 (6) of the Constitution," reads the report tabled Wednesday at National Assembly.

The auditor further says that there was no supporting documents for imprest payments totaling KES 1 million by an officer of the Technical Evaluation Committee to evaluating sub-contractors for the proposed multi-storey office block.The total approved Imprest was KES 2.1 million.

"Two imprest surrenders of  KES 1,462,640 and KES 795,720 were not supported with relevant documentary evidence, hence the propriety of these payments could not be confirmed," it adds.
