Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika has refuted claims that there are fights between her and Governor Lee Kinyanjui.
While responding to a question from Inooro TV presenter Kamau wa Kang’ethe, the senator said she was just engaged in her oversight role and not interested in fighting the governor.
“I don’t know why there are claims that there is bad blood between my self and the governor. He’s doing his work and am carrying out my mandate as the senator,” she responded. The senator was the guest at the popular Inooro TV breakfast show where she was discussing national and Nakuru county issues with the presenter.
“If anything, the people should be happy when they see me challenging the governor because then, they know their resources are safe,” she added.
Senator Kihika has been a thorn in the fresh for Governor Lee and his administration since she took over office. She has always been on the front line challenging decisions that seem to go against the wishes and welfare of Wanjiku. Recently, she took the governor to task for undertaking thr refurbishment of Naivasha hospital without involving all the stakeholders.
During the show, the senator also challenged the Audito General to produce audit reports in real time.
“We can’t be receiving audit reports four years later. How then do we make amends for where things have gone wrong?” She quipped.
She was responding to a question from Kamau Kang’ethe regarding the auditor general’s report that in 2015, the county government paid 300 million to ghost workers.
“Its upon the EACC to also carry out investigations into these claims to weed out the imprudent payments,” she said.
Uhuru did not insult Kenyans
The “Shenzi” remarks made by the president while in Mombasa did not target the citizens.
Senator Kihika while on the show said President Uhuru was taken out of context and leaders should not incite residents following those remarks.
Yesterday, Tuesday, Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri led a protest in Nakuru against the president’s shenzi remarks. He has since come under a lot of attacks for the action which led him to go into hiding for sometime fearing arrest.
