Kirinyaga County Deputy Governor Julius Njiri has accused his boss, Governor Joseph Ndathi of mistreating him by limiting his county allowances.

Speaking at a public baraza in South Gariama, Mwea Constituency on Saturday the deputy accused governor Ndathi of failing to avail his fuel and transport allowances as stipulated in the Constitution.

The Mr Njiri claimed that he had not been given his allowances since last year, and asked the people to probe Ndathi over his dealings with county funds.

“I do not have an official car yet the Constitution says deputy governors should have two cars and that the county should fuel the cars, but since January I have not received my fuel maintenance fee,” said Njiri.

The county deputy claimed he would not work with Ndathi again, citing mistreatment.

“If you see Ndathi again, I am not with him. It is only the office that binds me to him. I am alone but only with the people who are ready to develop Mwea,” he said.

The deputy was speaking while attending an event to open newly built classrooms and toilets for Itangi Primary School, donated by Purity Wangui, a business lady in the area.
