The ministry of Education has an Audit department headed by Victoria Angweny. This is the most corrupt department at the ministry. Auditors attached to this department are licensed to EAT and I mean EAT well from school principals so as to protect them from EACC. It gets worse during times like this when principals are handing over as they are delocalized to new stations. Principals say, they part with as much as 500,000 so as to buy the silence and approval of MOE auditors. Allow me to give Kisumu ounty where I taught for many years as an example.
*COUNTY AUDITOR MR. SITA*
Mr. Sita has been accused by heads in Kisumu county for fleecing them to the bone. Sita is accused of WORKING WITH SCHOOL BASARS who hem he uses to set up principals and who leak info to him. Once a bazzar has set up his or her principal, they report to SITA who then organizes an audit raid on the school. One such example is quoted at Ahero gitls where a thieving basar was dismissed with the school board. But Mr. Sita has insisted that the Basar be reinstated, To effect that he has been sending Threatening texts and making calls to the school principal that if she does not return the bassar, he will have her and her BOM DISMISSED VIA AN AUDIT QUERRY.
Ahero girls is not the only example. Sita is accused, with evidence provided to me which I will table to Victoria the chief Audit MOE, where he is summoning principals to schools even during the covid pandemic and subjecting them to what he calls *ONSITE AUDIT* According to KESSHA officials and also the KUPPET leaders in the region, Sita concentrates on the high-end national and boarding schools of Kisumu girls, Ahero, Onjiko, KB, Maseno etc, where he out of the blues organizes a raid. Unfortunately he finds various audit queries and he quickly demands for his share. Principals say he is NOT CHEAP. Sita is well known as he was formerly working in Kakamega. Kakamega principals celebrated when he was transferred to Kisumu. Unfortunately, several heads from western were delocalized to the same Kisumu and again came face to face with SITA. He works with his assistant auditor a Lady from Kalenjin land married to a local.
Mine is not to spoil names or career. But to raise fundamental points which Ministry of Education can investigate. Corruption and MAFIA GROUPS THAT EXIXST IN THE AUDIT DEPARTMENT. Mr. Magoha. For a srtart, kindlt check with Kisumu county.
