For example, the Governor of Kisii, Simba Arati, revealed that the county had only 82 vehicles and yet 256 drivers were on its payroll, some of whom did not even have valid driving licenses.

He also told Citizen TV that there were 861 individuals on his payroll whose job descriptions were not clear, BBC reported.

Another Governor, Wavinya Ndeti, of Machakos county has revealed that some of her government vehicles did not even have number plates and yet budgets had been set aside for the transport department.

A provincial administrator-turned-governor has won praise for his harsh office rules after turning away top officials from a meeting for arriving minutes later than him.

County governments were set up because of dissatisfaction with the highly centralized model of governance, which was blamed for an imbalance in resource allocation, development inequalities, the marginalization of some communities, and failure to involve the people in governance.
