As the new county administration struggle to get funds to run their county operations, the new Laikipia Governor Dr. Joshua Irungu has suspended several projects launched by the former Governor citing a lack of funds.

Joshua Irungu who recently took the county leadership mantle from former Governor Ndiritu Muriithi has moved to stop some projects started by the former administration from continuation due to a shortage of funds. Projects suspended include the improvement of 11 towns and small urban centers in the county, multi-million shilling equipment, a vehicle leasing program, and other unclaimed works claimed by several contractors in the county, etc.

While maintaining that the county has no money to fund those projects, Governor Irungu has accused the contractors working on the said projects of the failure to do thorough research and establish whether the county has enough money to pay them before beginning these projects.

It is said that many counties are now facing high financial challenges resulting from the huge debts left behind by the former administration hence leading to money that should have gone into projects being channeled into repaying the debts.
