Equipment still in store
Equipment the Kirinyaga Country bought use by ECD classes in the area over two years ago still lying in the store to the detriment of the educational standards for the beneficiaries .
Area Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri claimed not only the equipment was lying in the stores but also other items meant to benefit the locals and bought with public funds.
He claimed the county administration was to blame for vesting all the powers to an individual .
Ndambiri who spoke in front of the Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said unless the governor surrendered some of her executive powers to her CECs and other senior county officers most of such equipment will expire before use.
“The CEC for Education should be allowed to distribute the said equipment to all our ECD facilities but due to Governor Anne Waiguru’s hands on leadership the children who are meant to benefit learn without these gadgets,”Ndambiri claimed .
He said many things had gone wrong in the county since no one dared oppose the governor nor bring forward any meaningful suggestion no matter how positive such an official was .
“This county which is endowed with so much resources would be the one which others could be coming for bench marking but just look at how backward we are due the one man show syndrome ,”he charged.
He also questioned how the Sh 38 million worth of drugs the country procured from KEMSA just two weeks ago vanished from the health facilities included the very basic ones.
Ndambiri has for over a year been isolated from the country leadership after he was accused of having been behind the abortive impeachment of the governor by the area MCAs .
He has been operating from his home at Kanjinji village without being assigned any duties by the governor leading to the said one man show .
Statements concerning anything about the county must always come from the governor a trend Ndambiri blames for the fear the CESs have as well as senior officers not to face the wrath of the boss .
