M’Ethingia accuses Mwangaza of declining to pay Igembe election agents

Elections Agents hired by Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza to represent her in Igembe regions during last year’s general election have never been paid their dues -Deputy Governor M’Ethingia has revealed.

Addressing the Meru County Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) the Meru Deputy Governor claimed that the governor rejected his calls to pay them alleging her of claiming that they never delivered the expected number of votes from the region.

Mutuma argued that Governor Kawira instead asked him to pay them with his own salary.

“When I approached her demanding their payment she told me that I would pay them once I get my salary. She claimed that they never delivered the expected number of votes,” the DG said.

The DG added that their Igembe agents have yet to be paid a year since the elections lamenting to be receiving a lot of calls from them demanding their payments.

Meru Deputy Governor Mutuma M’Ethingia has claimed that his life is at risk following the alleged disconnection of electricity in his residence, a move he says has jeopardized his security.

Addressing the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) the DG accused Kenya Power and Lightening Company of disconnecting and connecting irregularly despite a communication to them by his personal assistant.

“It is like I got used to these frustrations of electricity getting disconnected, it became part of me. Food has been going to waste in fridges and freezers due to power disconnection. Electricity is also part of my security and my security is jeopardized,” M’Ethingia said.

He further claimed that the residence has a power generator but revealed that it has no fuel.

“The governor and Deputy governor’s residence has a generator but it has no fuel. Fueling it requires at least 500litres of fuel which is very expensive,” the DG added
