Kakamega and Homa Bay are among counties that used National Government Affirmative Action Funds (Ngaaf) in a prude way, (Ngaaf) chairperson Regina Ndambuki said. 

The two counties are represented by Elsie Muhanda and Gladys Wanga in the National Assembly respectively. Each of the 47 Woman MPs get Sh100 million for projects in their counties through Ngaaf. 

Ms Ndambuki said Ngaaf will continue to support women legislators who are using the funds well, and warned that those who squandered the money by initiating ghost projects will be prosecuted.

“We have leaders who started saccos, but they squandered the money along the way. Ethics Anti-Corruption Commission will soon be notified to crack the whip,” said Ms Ndambuki.
