The Kiambu County Assembly’s ward representatives demonstrated on Monday in front of the offices of Governor Paul Kimani Wamatangi, demanding an explanation of the process followed in the distribution of county bursaries.
The governor was accused by the representatives of implementing development plans using his own foundation without adequately informing them.
Furthermore, they assert that the governor concealed the amount of funding allotted for the program that provides bursaries to students from low-income families.
“The governor said we would receive KES 200 million to present to our pupils; now he says we would receive KES 100 million,” the teacher said. What happened to the others? A MCA took a photo.
The governor was compelled by the ward representatives to respond to their demands and offer clarification about the foundation’s and the county’s use of resources.
“We are requesting Wamatangi to release the Wamatangi foundation from the county government’s activities. The MCA continued, “He should cooperate with us, and we will cooperate with him.
The governor was not in his office at the time of the protest, and the legislators have pledged to keep protesting until their issues are resolved.
If the tensions between the governor and the county assembly members are not resolved, Kiambu county now runs the possibility of seeing further conflict between the two parties and maybe being subject to an impeachment.
