Makueni County Assembly are in a tussle with Executive over Project Management Committee payment.
The statement on the same had been made by Emali/Mulala MCA, Nicodemus Mutua Muthoka
County Minister in charge of treasury, Mary Kimanzi failed to convince members of Makueni county Assembly on executive’s plan to make PMC’s payments and matter was rescheduled.
Kikumbulyu MCA, Hon Jades Kalunda expressed his dissatisfaction on how county government has failed in making payment for the committees.
According to Kalunda the PMC’s are likely to to get compromised by the Contractors to rubber stamp poorly done projects.
“If PMCs are paid after the completion of projects, members are likely to be pocketed by contractors who do shoddy jobs, as the members do not have money to facilitate their movement” posed Kalunda
He urged the executive to make consideration of paying the management team partially awaiting for project’s completion as most projects take a long time before completion.
The MCAs have urged committee in charge of treasury committee to give sufficient statement/report on the same matter sufficiently.
