Just few days remaining for governor Cleophas Lagat to appear again before the Senate Committee, the romour reaching the desk of NCCSN’s Director of ICT has raised four highly suspicious missions that the governor is suspected to be currently doing with the support of his allies that had escorted him last week to the summoning, among others. Lagat was given a week to furnish the committee with all the necessary documents in response to the petition by the Nandi County Civil Society Network (NCCSN).
The four serious missions that are allegedly launched are:
- BRIBING THE SENATE WITH 200M
The first mission, sources closer to the governor claim that he is trying to bribe the Senate with 200million shillings to have his pending case dismissed.
- BORROW 695 MILLION LOAN
The second mission, (if the first doesn’t work out for him I guess) it is said that he is trying to borrow 695 million to buy graders and dozers for road construction, and use the excuse that the funds had delayed from the Finance Ministry to escape the trap.
- CHANGE THE BUDGET VALUES
Some of the county budget allocations claim huge sums of million shillings that are overcharged, and at times do not evaluate to the real cost of the project (if the project exist). For example the Mlango Gate was allocated over 30 Millions Shillings but the worth and the state of the gate cannot sum up to a mere 5millions. In this scenario and other similar projects, it is romoured that some recalculations are ongoing so that the Senate investigators may the budgets tallying against the respective projects.
- BLOCKING AUDITING OF COUNTY EXPENDITURE
The case may require an audit across the county. Here, the governor is damn sure that he will fail and will be found guilty of the corruption and wastage of funds. It is evident that most of the projects are not done and those claimed to be done are not completed or satisfactory. In one of the articles published in Daily Nation, previous audit done in Nandi County showed a lot of theft, plunder, and corruption combined.
