Murang’a County government has started to verify and authenticate pending bills which were accrued in the last two financial years.

The exercise is being done by a taskforce which was formed after the new county administration was given a nod to proceed with the auditing of the bills by the office of auditor general.

The county government through a notice invited suppliers with pending bills relating to the financial year 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 to appear for preliminary meetings scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.

The pending bills which were presented by assumption of office committee amounted to KSh1.5 billion but Governor Irungu Kang’ata said after they took office they did an assessment and found the county owed more than KSh2.7 billion.

Speaking when he inspected the verification exercise on Wednesday, September 21, Governor Kang’ata assured the suppliers that genuine bills will be paid.

He asked them to present the required documents cautioning them from engaging in corruption or forging documents.

“In this exercise to verify the bills, genuine documents are needed and we will extend the exercise up to Monday so we give every supplier time to present the required papers.” He added.

Kang’ata further said the auditor general had done verification of pending bills up to financial year 2019/2020.
