Why governor Munya risks prosecution

Meru County Governor Peter Munya has been given upto Wednesday nextweek to appeare before the Senate Public Account and Investments Committee (PAC) or face legal action.

Members to the Commitee which is chaired by Kisumu senator Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o warned that Munya and any other governor who fails to appeare before them to answer county audit queries as raised by the Auditor General, risks prosecution or being barred from vying for any electoral post come August 2017.

Nyong’o said Munya who is also the Chairman of the Council of Governors, has snubbed three consecutive summons and that he will no longer be entertained.

Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has also been put on the spot for snubbing similar summons.

They are both required to shed light on county expenditures for the 2013/2014 Financial Year spending.

Tharaka-Nithi Governor Samuel Ragwa who appeared before PAC on Wednesday was sent to come at a later date, with vouchers and receipts to balance expenditure books.
