Parents in Homa-Bay Town Constituency have raised red flag over the ongoing KES.1 million Constituency Development Fund (CDF), funded classrooms construction in Gogo Katum Primary School.
Speaking to Kisumu News the school Chairman Mr. John Owino said that the class room which was to add more value to learning children has been faulted by what he term lacking document to verify and monitor the use of the funds set aside for that classroom project.
This project was being undertaken without Bill of Quantities therefore no one can ascertain the amount spent in the classroom.John Owino School’s chairman said
He said their efforts to reach out to the contractor on site and the CDF office to avail the document at the school was futile.
We are worried that the construction works have started yet the document has not been availed even to the head teacher who is the secretary of the project implementation committee for accountability purposes,Owino said.
He noted that the construction is being done without proper procedures adding that this may give the head teacher hard time in accounting for the funds spent.
The Head Teacher Mr. Philip Odhiambo confirmed the Bill of Quantities has not been availed to him despite the fact that the construction works have started.
I have made the request with the CDF Chairman Zablon Were and contractor Willis Ogembo to avail the document but is yet to receive it though the works are ongoing,said Philip.
However the contractors defended themselves saying that they have followed all the due process of the law in the construction works.
It is prudent for the head teacher and the chairman to make a follow up and obtain the document,Ogembo said.
They said all the necessary documents including the Bill of Quantities were in existence and nobody has come to ask for them.
