Kenneth Lusaka – Governor

Attention has now shifted from the Mpigs to the Governors, who are turning out to be greedier than the law makers. 
On the spot this week is Bungoma governor Kenneth Lusaka. Yesterday, it emerged that the impoverished county has one of the most ridiculous budgets yet. For a start, the governor has allocated himself Sh 53 million for entertainment, this financial year. He however tried to clarify that last night on Citizen TV, saying the money is not his alone.

Secondly and shamelessly, the county has set aside Sh 1 million for the purchase of the speaker’s regalia.. just imagine. 

Another 22 million has been set aside for the governor’s travels, both local and foreign. A further Sh 10 million has been budgeted for conflict resolution, whatever that means.

Then, without the slightest shame, Sh 20 million has been budgeted for Pornography awareness. Yes, pornography has been identified as one of the stubborn problems in Bungoma County. 
It has been responsible for the hundreds of Bungoma residents who sleep hungry, the tens of schools without facilities, and surprisingly even the poor state of hospitals.

These are some comments by Kenyans regarding Bungoma’s budget.

Ngunjiri Wambugu – Govrnor Lusaka of Bungoma has 53M for entertainment; 30M for travel; in essence 83M total (6.3M per month) for entertaining & traveling …
