Kitui Senator David Musila has called onthe EACC to investigate Kitui governor Julius Malombe over what he termed as misappropriation of public funds.
Speaking at Malalani shopping centre the senator accused the governor of condoning corruption in his government saying that the county boss Was reluctant in fighting theft of public funds..
He said that Kitui has never missed in the bad books of the auditor general.
“it’s embarrassing seeing a county that is struggling with common necessities like water squandering public funds by focusing on less important projects ” noted the senator.
It’s not once or twice we have heard of lost funds within county government offices, we therefore welcome the EACC to Kitui to probe county government officers” he said.
His sentiments come barely two days after the anti-graft body released a report that mentioned Kitui among the nine most corrupt in the country.
Late last year Kitui governor fired five senior county government officers over graft.
