A Dark Cloud is cast over the Lakeside County of Kisumu with the latest report from Auditor General Edward Ouko revealing the damaging rot that has taken over the County.
Just after an audit report revealed that Kisumu MCAs pocketed millions in allowances for meetings they did not attend, a more damaging report is out and this time cows are involved.
According to an Auditor General’s report, Kisumu County splashed over 3 million shillings in purchasing a dairy cow during the 2017/2018 financial year.
The sum was deposited to a businessman’s account who was supposed to deliver 27 Ayrshire cows but ended up supplying only one.
The county officials insisted that the remaining animals were received but according to the report, there are no documentation confirming that the businessman actually delivered the remaining 26 cows.
The same report also reveals a sum of up-to KES 9M paid to a number of firms alleged to be owned by one individual to supply the county with fertilizer, deliveries which county officials haven’t been able to account for.
