The County Government of Vihiga has defended itself after posts on social media platforms claimed it had been listed as the worst county when it comes utilisation of World Bank grants.
In a statement, Governor Wilber Ottichilo said the report was a highlight of his predecessor Moses Akaranga.
"The World Bank did a report in the 2017/2018 financial year on the use of previous financial allocation. Unfortunately, Vihiga's performance was dismal but this is the year that the current regime was just settling in office after the Akaranga reign," reads the statement.
KDSP team conducted the assessment based on key areas such as public finance management, planning and monitoring.
