Migori Senator Ochilo Ayacko, speaking at Kebirato Catholic Church on Sunday, August 18, faulted the meeting between the county executives and the MCAs in Mombasa citing it as a waste of public funds.
Ochilo questioned the source of the money being spent by both the executive and the MCAs yet the county government claimed it was broke.
He said such funds spent on the trip ought to have been used to buy drugs for the county health facilities or cater for more important services.
