Kibwana threatens to quit

03 October 2013, 17:06

Makueni - The Makueni County Governor, Kivutha Kibwana, is threatening to step down following the controversy surrounding the implementation of the supplementary budget.

A fierce battle is looming between the County’s Assembly members and the governor after the members allocated themselves KES 975 million.

Kibwana threatened to step down for someone else to oversee the implementation of the supplementary budget in the event that the budget comes to effect.

The County Assembly members had on Wednesday adopted a supplementary budget that allocated funds including KES 163.9 million for personnel cost, KES 513.5 million for maintenance and KES 129 million for development expenditure.

The county was among the 25 counties that the Controller of Budget recently asked to revise their expenditure because of deficits.

Revenue Allocation Commission’s Chairman, Micah Cheserem, had earlier advised the members to reduce the budget to KES 475 million.

Members of the public, who were seated at the gallery, reacted angrily to the amendment but Assembly members ignored such concerns and proceeded to read the adoption of the budget.

“The Assembly members amended the budget as Makueni County has enough resources to raise the funds,” said a Speaker.
