Civic leader demands audit of council funds

 By  K. Charles

The news of dire sanitary situations in Sipili township, was first picked and published by Laikipia Rural Voices; a web blog run by community journalist in the area.

That followed the closure of the only public toilet in Sipili by the public health officer. The news was read far and wide, on the internet and in the social media.

Following the news coverage and public outrage, the area Councillor Mr. Bernard Ndung'u, has written to the local government minister Musalia Mudavadi calling for an audit of the Laikipia county council funds.

The community reporters are working very closely with the public, to highlight issues relevant to the local development progress and would not keep quiet when things are not going in the right direction.

 The social media is playing a critical role in promoting healthy debates and dialogue as people chart the way forward in matters of public affairs.
