MP Barasa blames Malala for audit report on misuse of CDF funds in Kimilili

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa.

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has come out to clarify the alleged misuse of Constituency Development Funds (CDF) within the constituency.

This follows an audit report by the State Department for Public Works that exposed the risks sections of learners in schools in Kimilili are facing due to shoddy workmanship during the construction of classes.

The reports indicate that classrooms in 10 out of 12 schools in Kimilili are structurally unsound.

Speaking at his home in Kimilili after a meeting with stakeholders on Saturday, Barasa claimed the report was a deliberate target aimed at sabotaging development in the county.

He linked a former constituency finance officer and the UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malala to the release of the report which he termed as false.

Barasa claimed that the finance officer was employed as a CDF accountant for Kimilili on February 14, 2018.

And in 2023 when Malala was appointed to his position at UDA, he employed her as a finance officer at the UDA headquarters. He claims that the officer is Malala's sister-in-law.

He however stated that he had a bone to pick with Malala over alleged hostile political statements he once made.

"There was a time Malala was threatening our leaders among them Mudavadi and Wetangula. I called a meeting with journalists and I told Malala that he will face the music if he continues with that behaviour," said Barasa.

"He called me one day and told me I will finish you and I asked him if he is God for him to finish me. I have not heard from him since then."

Barasa therefore noted that amid the ongoing tiff, the officer was briefing Malala on the constituency's audit reports which gave him (Malala) ammunition to fire back.

"He was being briefed with this lady and he calls me and tells me that I have looted CDF money and that he has my file," said Barasa.

Barasa has faulted the finance officer for providing a false document which he says has been used to frustrate his ambitions to run for Bungoma County governorship seat.

"Anybody who will try to stand on my path to occupy the pedestal that God has prepared for me God will deal with you, you will not live to discuss," he said.

"From next week I will not be cooling down, I will be more hotter. Wakitaka kujinyonga waende wajinyonge."
