Trans Nzoia governor Patrick Khaemba has vowed to take Noah Wekesa to court if he fails to prove that he pocketed county funds through the purchase of new building earmarked for a referral hospital.

Speaking in Kitale, Khaemba said he is tired of the cheap propaganda by leaders who had found it difficult to deliver when they were in office. He said Wekesa has no evidence but relies on rumours and not facts saying the county government had followed the right procedures in the procurement process.

He added that he is trying the best to transform Trans Nzoia county to be a better place but some leaders who failed to deliver during their time in office are fighting him instead of waiting for 2017. Wekesa  and Saboti MP David Wafula, women rep  Janet Nangabo, Chris Wamalwa  of Kiminini and Endebess MP Robert Pukose were lambasted  by Khaemba for soiling his name in funerals that the facility was procured irregularly and was overvalued at a price of Sh183 million.
They have claimed Khaemba was involved which the governor has refuted by tabling documents in the procedure followed in the acquisition. Khaemba has vowed to take Wekesa to court after investigations are done on him so that others to learn from their utterances.
