Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi has demanded audit on the Kisii County COVID 19 funds dispatched from the National Government to combat the virus.

Speaking to Journalists on Thursday at his Kisii town residential home, Maangi said it’s upon leaders entrusted with public funds to exhibit accountability.

He distanced himself from the ongoing heated impeachment to kick out the Kisii County Assembly speaker   David Kombo.

“We must be firm in speaking the truth. We got money from the National Government to combat COVID in Kisii County. As members of the County Assembly, it’s their constitutional mandate to put us on check,” He said.

He further questioned, “It’s the responsibly of every Kisii resident to ask what did we do or what did we buy with the money we got to fight Covid. Can we do a physical examination, a physical checkup and say that we bought A,B,C,D?,”

Maangi has thrown an audit challenge to confirm if indeed what is orally being said on how the cash was spent is true.

“Can we do an audit to confirm that we bought the following number of beds and these beds were bought from point A and the procurement entity was entity A and here they are?  I believe we will be getting those answers sooner than later,” He said.

Maangi has endorsed the BBI signature collection citing the report addressed a number of the issues he raised though not 100%.
