Kitui Deputy Governor Peninah Malonza has dismissed as malicious a story carried by the Star last Thursday.
The Star reported that she said the county government will undertake periodic audits of funds given to MCAs for projects.
“The report was malicious, false and meant to malign my character and personality as deputy governor of Kitui county by portraying me in the eyes of the people of Kitui county and beyond as ignorant, uninformed and incompetent,” Malonza said.
She said the report wrongly indicated that she addressed a rally in Kitui South last Wednesday.
“I was actually in Mwingi and later joined other (county) leaders at a function at KEFRI in Kitui town,” Malonza said.
