A section of leaders from Kirinyaga have questioned the manner in which Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru utilized Sh51.9 million raised for President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election campaign for the October 26th repeat presidential election.
Last month, leaders and professionals from Kirinyaga county raised over Sh50 million within 48 hours for Uhuru's campaign and are now demanding for Governor Waiguru to account for the cash.
The leaders allege that the few campaign activities organized after the fundraiser could not have consumed the entire cash.
"We want to be told where much of the cash went because only vehicles were branded and few campaign road-shows conducted. This is a scandal,” Peter Kariuki told Nairobi News.
Another politician Ephraim Warui said he suspects the money was not used as they had planned. "I was involved in the campaigns and I doubt that all the money was spent for the intended purpose,” he said.
Murango Kamau, who is the Majority leader in Kirinyaga county assembly said the campaign committee he was heading only received Sh11 Million.
"I only know of Sh11 million and and I can clearly account for it. I think the difference was a pledge by MCAs, MPs and Professionals,” he said.
