Residents of Naivasha are now calling on the Government to freeze the area Constituency Development Fund (CDF) account over alleged misappropriation of funds.
A day after the constituency was ranked among the worst run, traders and political, religious and youth leaders called on auditors to scrutinise the constituency account.
They praised a report by the National Taxpayers Association on the use of CDF account noting that many projects in the areas were questionable.
During a press conference in Naivasha, the group lashed at area MP John Mututho accusing him of running a one man-show in area CDF office.
Councilor Simon Wanyoike Wanango was the first to fire the salvo noting that various projects, including the Kihoto drainage and county council light mast, were marred in controversy.
“Our MP wants to be the Governor of Nakuru County and we are wondering how he will manage the billions if he cannot account for few a millions at constituency level,” he wondered.
Jamia Mosque Imam Adam Ali said they were not surprised when the constituency was ranked among the poorest performing. He pointed out to bursary allocation adding that only a selected few benefitted.
“We ask the Government to send in auditors as our efforts to reach the MP are futile and it’s the taxpayer who is losing,” said Mr David Mbau, a trader.
