Chief Officer in charge of Land, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development Christopher Kioko Syengo is the latest victim of mbee nzei looting rampage which has swept across Kitui like a calamitous Tsunami.
KituiOnline has established that Governor Charity Ngilu ordered demotion of the incorruptible son of Kitui and immediately transfer to a nondescript, shell post just before jetting off to Dallas, Texas in the US.
Our sources within Ngilu’s inner circle have revealed that Syengo’s unwavering adherence to the law in execution of his mandate in the “lucrative” docket had made it impossible for mbee nzei cartels to reap through irregular tendering.
“His insistence on doing everything as per the law put him on a collision course with mbee nzei cartels who have instigated his removal from the office to pave way for unbridled plunder of public coffers,” offered the tipster.
He has been forthwith replaced by Ngilu’s confidant Engineer Kisilu under acting capacity.
This comes barely a week after the County Assembly approved the Sh.11 billion budget estimates of which over over 200 million has been allocated to LIHUD.
