A week since a stern warning by Jubilee Governor nominee, Senator Stephen Sang, there has been a drastic decline in the misuse county government vehicles in Nandi county.

A spot check by Northrift News revealed that county vehicles have jammed the parking space every evening at the county headquarters since the legislator called for community policing over alleged misuse of county vehicles.

Speaking during a Radio interview, Sang had urged residents living along the Kapsabet-Eldoret Highway to take responsibility and be on the look for county vehicles operating beyond the stipulated time.

He singled out vehicles assigned to the county executive committee members as the most misused. He said it was unfortunate that some members of the executive committee were using the vehicles for their private missions outside the county government work.

“It is immoral for vehicles assigned to senior county officials to be used for personal activities. A number of county vehicles are frequently seen heading to Eldoret town past working hours and I want to call upon residents living along the highway to impound such vehicles as long as they are not on official duty,”said Sang.

He said the county government has been losing millions of shillings to fuel cars which are not being used for the intended purposes.

Sang said the vehicles should be used to provide services to the public and not for personal gain.

The legislator, who won the Jubilee gubernatorial ticket, pointed out that when he is elected in August he will he will ensure no county vehicles operate past working hours.

He said this will reduce waste of public funds.
