Senator Ledama Alleges Misuse of Public Funds by Narok Governor

Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has expressed concern about the purported extensive mishandling of public funds and misuse of authority by Governor Patrick Ole Ntutu.

Addressing the press at his residence in Eor-Okule following a discussion with his recently assembled Senate oversight group, Ole Kina claimed that a Nairobi company called Family Engineering had been granted a contract worth Ksh.1.6 Billion to provide earth-moving machinery for Narok County. He asserted that despite attempts to halt this, the process was obstructed.

Kina additionally claims that the Chief Park Administrator has been specifically directed to personally gather money from prominent figures. Kina questions how the authorization was granted for 46 camping sites within Mara Gem to function by imposing an additional fee of $80 for accommodations and an extra $200 for park entry. This action, criticized by the tourism federation, is anticipated to dissuade tourists.

He stated that despite the greater Mara region now having more than 5,000 beds, the County Government has not seen improvements in the sector despite the profits generated.

Ledama additionally contended that the current state of affairs has jeopardized the business prospects of the 117 local-owned campgrounds situated along the Mara River, especially with the rise in fee charges.

The lawmaker claimed that taking such action without involving the public was unjust, suggesting that the Governor had pressured the group of local investors.

Regarding education, Ledama claimed that the delayed disbursement of educational scholarships was caused by an unexplained sum of Ksh.451 million and outstanding payments owed by the County.

In the past few days, several analysts have ranked Narok County as one of the top regions nationwide in terms of development and delivery of services.
