Just a week after been inaugurated as the new Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru has written to the Auditor General requesting the office to conduct what she terms ‘an urgent comprehensive special financial audit for the county’.

According to the former Devolution Cabinet Secretary, the purpose of the audit is for her to fully ascertain the financial status and bank accounts of the county for the last eight months, before she embarks on rolling out development projects to the people of Kirinyaga.

“I want to know the accurate perspective of financial status of the county. I will appreciate if this audit can be finalized in the next 21 days to enable us make necessary decisions to move the county forward,” said Governor Waiguru.

Additionally, she has written to the Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs also requesting the ministry conduct an ‘urgent assessment of current human resource/staffing capacities in the county’.

This, Waiguru says, will help his new government to fully understand the staffing levels in the county and their remuneration in relation to their workload in a bod to ascertain if county is utilizing taxpayer’s money in the right way.

Waiguru has constantly blamed the previous regime for failing to deliver to the people of Kirinyaga as, she says, they have not enjoyed the fruits of devolution since its advent in 2013.

Waiguru hopes that the human resource assessment will be undertaken in the next 14 days.
