The leadership tussle in Narok county government should not be mistaken for discontent in URP, an official has said.
National deputy secretary Leah Ntimama said the differences between Governor Samuel Tunai and the MPs are not about the party, but the rights of the Maasai community.
Ntimama accused Tunai of misusing the county’s resources, going against the party’s manifesto which promotes transparency and accountability.
“It must remain clear that this is not about URP but rather a governor who does not want to be asked to be financially responsible,” she told the Star on the phone yesterday.
Leaders opposing Tunai have accused him of financial impropriety and failing to provide sound leadership.
Senator Stephen Ntutu, MPs Patrick Ntutu (Narok West), Korei Lemein (Narok South), Johana Ng’eno (Emurua Dikirr) and Moitalel Kenta (Narok North) are some of the leaders opposing Tunai.
Senator Ntutu said Tunai should be accountable and exercise transparency in use of public resources.
The leaders also questioned the procedure through which Kenya Airport Parking Services was contracted to collect revenue at the Masai Mara Game Reserve.
But Tunai dismissed MPs’ calling for the termination of the contract. He accused them of deceiving the public.
He said revenue collection at the reserve has tripled since Kaps took over.
“Our opponents have gone round claiming that there is lack of transparency in the collection of revenue. All we are asking them to do is to table evidence,” said Tunai.
