Tana River County Finance CEC has come under heavy criticism how he signed the County’s Financial Statements while he is not a member of ICPAK. The Governor appeared to claim that his CEC was registered a claim that appears to be untrue. NFD Dispatch did a search at the ICPAK registry and the name of John Bwaboya turned does not appear as one of the members. It remains unclear how the CEC prepared and signed the statements without these qualifications.
The law requires one preparing and signing Financial Statements to be a registered and an active member of ICPAK. The CEC despite having a Masters degree in Business Administration has no degree in accounting, no CPA(K) and neither is he registered with KASNEB.
