20th february 2019 MPs Summon State House Comptroller Over Ksh2.7 Billion Expenditure Members of the National Assembly (MPs) have summoned State House Comptroller Kinuthia Mbugua over Ksh2.7 billion expenditures at the presidency.
Mr Mbugua was summoned to answer audit questions that were raised by the Auditor General over the billions spent at the presidency from 2013 to 2016.
Mbugua, the State House Accounting Officer, was to appear before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Tuesday to respond to the queries raised.
However, he sent an apology to the committee, requesting to have the meeting rescheduled claiming he was attending to a pressing matter at State House.
In the apology, Mbugua noted: “Due to my involvement in some State House engagements falling on the same period, I will be constrained in honoring the committee’s sitting today. Reschedule my appearance to a later date.”
His apology did not go well with the members of the committee, with the chairman Opiyo Wandayi asserting that his appearance before the committee superseded everyday engagements of accounting officers.
In his report, the Auditor General noted that despite the Presidency providing required certificates to support the expenditures, there was still much unsatisfactory matter that Mr Mbugua needed to clarify regarding the confidential expenditure.
