Outcry As Busia MCA's Enjoy Lavish Trip To Dubai

Residents of Busia county have been left fuming after reports that the county's MCA were on a 4 day trip to Dubai. The trip costs a whopping 18 million and may even cost more. What made the issue more serious was that the county officials were going to learn about budget making.
This made residents angry as it is way cheaper to have someone from Dubai to come and teach them here in Kenya.
The 15-member delegation is made up of three technical staff, nine MCAs,  the head of county public service board and chief financial officer.
Word on the street was that the trip would cost an insane KSh 53 million but this was quickly refuted by the John Obwogo, the Chairman of Budget and Appropriation Committee.
The country has seen several expensive trips in various counties by county officials who draw their budgets from public coffers.
While roads remain in the terrible states, Daily Updates learned that officials say they have to enjoy as much as they can because they do not know if they will be back in office in five years time.
Busia County is headed by Sospeter Ojaamong' who was elected under the ODM party in the NASA coalition.
