Nakuru County Gov’t on the spot for failing to pay contractors
Organisers of the national youth week held in Nakuru in September 2015 are up in arms over failure by the Nakuru County Government to pay them an outstanding debt of over Sh4 million for the event.
Speaking at the county headquarters after staging a demonstration today (Monday), the contractors led by Susan Mzame of Rift Events, Benson Ngobia of Bensas Investments and Mureithi Ben of Peshmae Limited said the county government owes them Sh1.9 million, Sh670,000 and Sh1.2 million respectively, but only a quarter of the total amount for the events has been paid .
The contractors were involved in among other things decorating the venue.
They also accused the county government’s CEC in charge of finance Ann Njenga of what they termed as lack of commitment in clearing the debt.
Efforts to reach the CEC in charge of finance were futile as our calls went unanswered.
