Wajir Residents Call for the Arrest of Governor
Few days after Wajir Senator called on anti-corruption authorities to act against the Wajir County chief, Mohamed Abdi Mohamud, over what he said was a runaway corruption in the county, a section of Wajir residents called on the government to arrest the governor to safe the county. They said governor Mohamed Abdi should be arrested in Nairobi to safe wajir county from collapse. ” It is unprecedented that Wajir County’s pending bill is over shillings 2 billion, we call upon the government agencies to arrest and bar him from office” Said the locals who were speaking to the media. They said there is no organized government in Wajir. “The Chief accounting officers are not taking instructions from CECs but from cartels outside the organs of the administration” They said. They said the claims by the senator are valid and he should not only talk but act too. ” The senator should not only talk, he should prepare to build our case against this government and help anti-corruption agencies pursue this administration that is fleecing its people” They said.
A section of the crowd accused the senator of silence in the face of widespread corruption. ” Why was the senator silent if he knew theft of public money was on going” they asked.
The governor is said to have gone for Ummrah and expected to jet into the country soon.
