Wajir Senator Threatens to Spill the Beans on Corruption in the County
Wajir Senator Dr Abdullahi Ali aka Kabreta has sensationally claimed that Wajir county governor is indulging in runaway corruption and calls on the anti-corruption authorities to properly do their work. The Senator has termed the county corruption as ”beyond the pale” and that his patience has been tested to the limit. Asked why he did not talk about this before, the senator said that he indeed talked privately to the governor severally and nothing has changed. ” I have spoken to the governor in private about this. The last time we spoke was 6 months ago in the Holy city of Makkah”. Where bigger and better than in Makkah could I to talk to him about it” asked the angry senator. He said they agreed that changes will be effected but to no avail. The government is not working for the people said Dr Abdullahi.
”Each of the NFD governments gets shillings 150 million as emergency funds and this money is just stolen” said the Senator. There is money for roads amounting to shillings 200 million a year and only 3.7 million has been utilized for road clearing, have we seen a kilometre of road tarmacked since this government came to power?” asked Dr Abdullahi.
He said people should not expect anything good from this government and asked locals to depend on themselves to fight the current locust invasion.
The Senator claimed that EACC receives bribes and are not doing their work. ”EACC visited Wajir several times and all that happens is to take bribes and revert to their offices”. He is said he will talk about what is going on in the county and how its money is being misappropriated. ”From now on we will not keep quiet and do will anything in power to stop it.”
He talked about how Senator Farhiya was victimized by hooligans just because she talked about corruption in the county. ” When Senator Farhiya talked about corruption she was beaten by thugs, isn’t that shameful” asked the Senator. He said he does not fear intimidation and cannot risk his future by keeping quiet.
