A Nandi civil society group chairman Mr. Shadrack Tarno has differed with the County Governor Stephen Sang over an alleged graft scheme in the purchase of tipper lorries.
Speaking to West Media, Mr. Tarno questioned the Governor’s decision, saying the quoted price of purchase is higher than what they should actually cost. The chair complained about the move, saying the purchase of equipment and goods is being done without a proper procurement process and that residents should know what is going on in the County.
He urged Governor Sang to come out and clearly explain the procedure followed in the purchase of the tipper lorries. Earlier, during the launch of roadworks equipment, Nandi Governor Sang refuted claims that a tipper lorry was purchased at a cost of Kshs 15 million, and clarified that each cost Ksh 8.5 million.
Moreover, the Civil Society Group chair inquired how Kshs 13 million meant for bursaries in the education docket was used, saying the cash was channelled to other functions yet needy children across the County are still waiting for the bursaries. He urged the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission and the office of the Auditor General to prob and investigate the corruption vices in the County.
