The Governor on the budget issue

Date of Event/Action: 
Sep 30 2013

Our Governor could not hide the joy and said " I appreciate the overwhelming support of the people of Makueni County on the Budget issue. God bless you for standing firm to protect your resources. We shall overcome the speaker and the 45 out of 47 MCAs who want to retain us at Number 143/187 of Human Development in the world. By the way, the controller and Auditor General has just released to the 47 counties development money for the first month. Each county will get the money after giving procurement plans, We have already sent ours to her. It is unfortunate that the Budget crisis in the County Assembly is being led by wiper MCAs who are Majority in the assembly. I have told Kalonzo Musyoka this, We dont want interference in Makueni County. I now believe more than before that Kalonzo, Muthama ete should let Kibwezi West people choose a leader of their choice without imposition. We must break from the past of the people's right to choose being taken away from them. Makueni County should be left alone to chart its own destiny."
