    Whenever he picks the mic, he oozes hate and pours vitriol against anyone opposed to DP William Ruto. If sycophancy had a face, then it would look like Governor Stephen Sang’s. Nandi County has lost close to 2.3B shillings since Governor Sang took office in 2017.

    Nandi Senator Samson  Cherargei has  claimed that the 2.3B  loss has been pointed out by the Auditor General and it implicates six departments in Governor Sang’s administration as having been involved in this massive theft and looting.

    “Governor Sang cannot account for 2.3 Billion shillings yet he’s busy hoodwinking common mwananchi by suspending junior officers. We want to make Nandi Governor – Stephen Sang a perfect example of how Wanjiku can revolt and chase out corrupt County officials from office,” said the Nandi Senator

    The county has been in the limelight following the “disappearance” of materials procured by the Department of Education worth 234M shillings, meant for construction of Early Childhood Education Centers within the county.The materials included iron sheets,cement,ceiling boards,bricks and nails.It is now emerging that these materials were taken to hoes of senior officials in the county government under the supervision of the governor.The ECD project was allocated the 234M in both 2017/18 and 2018/19 financial years.

    ”It is now time for Governor Sang to resign following massive allegations of graft facing his administration. Today’s suspension of 15 County officials by Governor Sang and instigating his own investigation using his own officers is a mockery of the public,” reads part of Senator  Cherargei’s statement on the theft.
