No malice in water overflow in Busia Deputy Governor’s office

No malice in water overflow in Busia Deputy Governor’s  office, says Akedi
Chief officer in Busia Deputy Governor Kizito Wangalwa’s office, James
Akedi has denied  existence of any  malice in the water overflow  in
the  DG’s  office  on August  17th, 2015.
Radio reports today attributing the Deputy Governor himself  indicated
that  there  could have been malice in the water overflow  in DG’s
office.
The reports also indicated that  the DG had sent all workers in his
office  on compulsory leave pending investigations into the incident
and that the governor was aware.
Putting  the record straight on Wednesday,  the Chief officer  in the
Deputy Governor’s office Wambogo Akedi  said water overflow was caused
by  plumbing leakage last Monday night  and the taps had been left on.
” It is not true that there was malice in the water overflow. This was
caused  by failure  to close the tap  which led to the overflow. The
problem has since been rectified,” Akedi said.
Akedi said  the governor was not aware of the overflow  and wondered
why the County boss’s name was being dragged into an issue which he
was not aware.
He also denied radio reports  that staff in the Deputy Governor’s
office had been sent on compulsory leave for six months  pending
investigations.
” I am an accounting officer who should have been given to draft the
letters sending such officers on compulsory leave  but  there are no
such letters to warrant  suspension claims,” he said.
Akedi said the office of the Governor  and Deputy are in cordial
working relations to warrant such reports which  have no basis,” he
said.
