Governor Kivutha Kibwana Makes History After 7 Years

  • Governor Kivutha Kibwana has made history after 7 years becoming the first county boss whose government has obtained a clean financial records approval.

    "Makueni County is the first County in the country since the start of devolution to get a clean Audit report from the Auditor-General.

    "This means that the county government is in compliance with the generally accepted accounting principles and statutory requirements," a congratulatory message from the Council of Governors read.

    The audit reports by Auditor-General Edward Ouko are meant to ascertain the completeness, neutrality and accuracy of the financial information and accounting system of the government and its agencies.

    Following the report, Majority Leader in the Senate Kipchumba Murkomen also congratulated Makueni County, Governor Kibwana and his Deputy Adelina Mwau.

    "The Senate recognizes and admires the good work you are doing. You have been cooperating with the Senate on matters of financial oversight through our County Public Accounts Committee. God bless you," Murkomen tweeted.

    Governor Kibwana has in the past launched several ambitious projects to transform the county and serve his electorate.

    These projects include the ultramodern 120-bed Makueni Mother and Child  Hospital at Wote constructed and fully equipped at a cost of Ksh135 Million, Ksh57 million milk processing plant and a Ksh750 million water project.

    Makueni's excellence comes after 7 years of pathetic reports from counties that have been marred with cases of corruption and misuse of public funds.

    Nyandarua County which is headed by Governor Francis Kimemia has also reportedly got a clean Audit report from the AG.

    Equally, Kericho County Assembly under Governor Prof. Paul  Chepkwony has received a clean audit report from Ouko.
