Stop threatening county officials with removal from office, reps told

A Senate team yesterday warned MCAs to stop threatening county officials with removal from office, saying the trend is driven by greed.
 Senate Committee on Devolution and Intergovernmental Relations cautioned governors against compromising MCAs with goodies in exchange of kicking out some officials, who do not toe their line. The senators spoke to the press at Parliament Buildings.
“It has been observed that the probable causes of these hostilities are greed for the control of power or misappropriation of money through uncalled-for and unnecessary travels so as to earn per diem allowances,” committee chairman John Kinyua said. He was accompanied by Boy Juma of Kwale, Samson Cherargei of Nandi and Boniface Kabaka of Machakos.
Latest reports by Auditor General Edward Ouko have revealed massive plundering of public funds at the county assemblies.
The 2016-17 audit report shows how MCAs and assembly staff have been pocketing millions in illegal mileage and sitting and travel allowances.
