Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku shares room with 2 ministers in Loitoktok

Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku has sparked discussions after he shared a hotel room with two of the members of his County Executive Council.

The governor ditched what is the custom of top bosses to hire out executive rooms to sleep in a low-cost shared room.

Governor Lenku and his ministers are said to have been in Loitoktok since Monday for a series of consultative meetings.

Sources say that the county bosses opted to share a room as a way of limiting the county administration's expenditure.

According to the county's policies, a CEC is allocated a Sh10,000 daily allowance when away on official duties, with the move by the three, the county is said to have footed Sh2,500 a day for accommodation.

A photo of the three "roommates" was circulated online sparking discussions over whether or not the move was well calculated.

Ali AwDoll remarked: "I have a feeling, this wasn't done to save the taxpayer some money, rather there aren't high end hotels with executive rooms in Loitoktok town."

Nathan Robe added: "Lenku knows this is a PR lie ... remember the Mattresses that were burning at #WestgateAttack?"
