Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, has broken silence after it emerged that Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has been using county funds to sponsor his preferred candidate, former Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Limited (KETRACO) boss Fernandes Barasa.
In a Twitter handle through his social media platform, Malala, who is eying the Kakamega gubernatorial seat, stated that following Oparanya's latest post on Facebook, it is clear that he is funding Barasa using funds meant for the county. According to the post, all ODM candidates are expected to hold a rally with Oparanya being tye main sponsor.
He further pleaded with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to intervene into the matter.
"Gov. Oparanya has now openly come out to accept the fact that he is using county resources to sponsor the Odm Gubernatorial candidate in Kakamega. Hello @DCI_Kenya, @EACCKenya, @IEBCKenya and all relevant authorities. Which level playing ground are you talking about??" Posed Malala.
