Wabukala issues new directive to all Governors elect

The swearing of new governors begins tomorrow

Speaking to the press for the first time after the announcement of the presidential results, EACC chairman Eliud Wabukala has said.

In his remarks, Mr Wabukala has also faulted the elections polls team IEBC for failing to curb the corruption perpetuated by the candidates in the just concluded elections, citing Meru and Garissa as having had the problem on the Election Day.

"We came across isolated cases of voter bribery in Garissa, Meru, Nyamira and Machakos," Mr Wabukala told journalists in Nairobi.

Meanwhile, the swearing in ceremony is set to begin on Thursday with  Machakos County governor elect Dr Alfred Mutua and his Mandera County counterpart Ali Roba leading the list.

Be investigated

On Tuesday Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri in a press conference maintained that all the governors who might have been implicated in irregularities will still bear the brunt of the investigative agenices.

"They will be summoned as holders of office and not as individuals. Any of them with questions to answer will  continue doing so because the law must take its course," Kiunjuri told the press in his Treasury Building.

Earlier this year, the senate Accounts Committee had a rough time with numerous governors who could not account for millions of shillings send to the counties by the National Treasury.
