Rusinga MCA Denies Misusing Roads Funds

THE Homa Bay county assembly majority leader Michael Ooro has said he did not irregularly use Sh5.4 million meant for road construction.

The money was meant to build Kamasengre – Luora and Kamgere – Utajo roads.

Ooro, who is Rusinga MCA, addressed journalists in his office on Monday.

He said Sh3.6 million was paid to the contracted engineer and Sh1.8 million not paid because the contractor never did his job.

Residents had written to the assembly Roads Committee, accusing Ooro of funds irregularity.
