Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala has written to Governor Wycliffe Oparanya detailing alleged misuse of funds meant for public projects in various parts of the county.
The letter dated August 26 2019 also informs the governor about the problems afflicting various devolved sectors in the county ranging from health, education, and businesses to general infrastructure.
Malala claims that funds running into hundreds of millions of shillings cannot be accounted for in the county as the projects they were earmarked for were either never undertaken or are incomplete.

He has further decried the poor state of health facilities in the county saying residents were succumbing to common ailments such as malaria due to lack of or inadequate medical facilities and shortage of staff.
He said nearly all the 60 elected MCAs in the county were complaining that there was little or nothing going on in their wards. This has worsened after Oparanya stopped the ward development fund.
Malalah has detailed all the projects in the county that were either shoddily done or incomplete. He says some Wards do not even have a single project initiated.
“Some Wards have been completely neglected and have not seen any project from the county government. A good example is Chevaywa in Lugari. In others like Kongoni in Likuyani we have projects such as Nangili Water Project that has stalled, Nangili and Fafaro markets which have no toilets, while Mutembei Dispensary is stalled,” he said.
