Uasin Gishu County Leaders dismiss EACC Survey on Corruption


Uasin Gishu County Deputy Governor Daniel Kiprotich Chemno has protested an Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission survey ranking them among the most corrupt in the country. The survey was conducted between September and November last year when County governments had not come into operation.

According to the report that was
released on Monday, Uasin gishu county was ranked most corrupt.
Yesterday, some county leaders dismissed the survey and questioned the motive of
doing it. The leaders said there is
no way counties would be used when they were not functioning until March this year.

Trade County Executive,Philip Melly Matelong speaking on phone to KASS FM said: “Those are misplaced reports carried out under poor rationale that should be brushed aside.”He pointed out that corruption allegations on defunct municipal councils should not be used to insinuate that County Governments are corrupt.
“It is not in order to crucify county governments for mistakes committed by
previous Municipal Councils. I think the report should be revised properly,” said Melly.

County Assembly Speaker Isaac Terer said it is wrong to say the County Government is Corrupt.He defended the current county assembly against allegations of
corruption, adding that compared to
the past council assemblies, they have
worked to reduce corruption in the county.

  1. Dep Governor; do not dismiss the report, indeed corruption is there. You need to work from there and show that you have fought and reduced the vice. The report is for the period when your were not in office and you inherited some of the perpetrators of the vice.

  2. i really support the report! uasin gishu is home of corruption! corrupt leaders, corrupt institutions, corrupt servants everything is in a mess! only God can help us in UG county! mandago is busy traveling instead of delivering services to us! he is lazy & luxurious fellow! am waiting to hear performance report! despite the resources we have i think we wil be ranked beyond 10!

  3. its totally true,no office within the county tat is not corrupt,lastly av been registration offce to rectify birth certificate but i was told to pay 3k,traffic the same and many more

  4. dont waste time fighting the truth cos it will never die…instead you should be busy putting your house in order…..u guys reason as though u dont reside in the county when the police crimes and transport department next you is receiving bribes day in day out!!!!!!

  5. This survey I believe is a wake up call to think critically and work even smarter to see the desired results. All is not lost…actually it’s a blessing in disguise – how will our leaders use it for the better of this county and it’s citizens?
