– The Sh10 million project has raised questions on accountability from members of the public
– The social audit will be conducted on Thursday
The National Anti-Corruption Campaign Steering Committee (NACCSC) has called on the members of the public to attend a social audit for the construction of the Kiwanja Ndege footbridge at the project site on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 10.00 am.
The finished footbridge, which connects Lugari Ward to Chekalini Ward through the Kipkaren River, was allocated KShs 10 million.
The project contractor, members of the project management committee, the project manager, financer from the Lugari NG-CDF and Lugari Ward MCA, Musa Wangila Makhapila, or the area chief or assistant chief have been asked to attend the official event.
In a notice by the anti-corruption body signed Friday, May 20, 2022, the project stakeholders have been requested to avail project files, minutes, BQ and design, site handing over report, tender opening and evaluation documents, site notes, payroll and related documents, project summary report and public participation report.
The social auditing process being conducted under the County Anti-Corruption Civilian Oversight Committees (CACCOCs) led by its representative in Lugari, Juma Daraja, is aimed at educating, sensitizing and creating awareness to empower members of the public to fight and prevent corruption on projects funded by government devolved funds.
The findings of the report will be unveiled to the public and forwarded to the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) in case a question of misappropriation of funds arises.
During its construction, the footbridge, which is now in use, raised questions of accountability arising from the quality of the materials used. This is after the metals collapsed twice, injured three workers, and made the project stalled for about two months.
