“I am forced to terminate his contract following his failure to explain the whereabouts of missing cash in my office which he was the signatory ,” she said.

Bungoma county women MP Catherine Wambilianga has fired her long time personal assistant  Allan Wochwa.

Wochwa is said to have been involved in a cash scam in Wambilianga’s office.

Wochwa is accused of overseeing fraud in her office and failing to remit statutory deductions in her office fund.

“I am forced to terminate his contract following his failure to explain the whereabouts of missing cash in my office which he was the signatory ,” she said.

Wambilianga said Wochwa who was a signatory to her office account but fraudently removed one of tgem and they remained two signatories who committed several financial crimes.

“The guy has been pocketing all statutory deductions including PAYE, NHIF, NSSF that he has been deducting from other staff, this is corruption of the highest order which I can’t entertain in my office ,” said Wambilianga.

The Mp further accused Wochwa of forging her letter heads where he used them to write to so many organizations to get favours.

“What do you expect me to do when I am called that I wrote a letter  to a certain organizations without my knowledge, isn’t this fraud of the highest order,” posed Wambilianga.

In some cases Wambilianga said Wochwa asked for job vacancies at the Nzoia sugar company and alleged he had been sent by her and ended up selling out the slots .

“As if this is not enough I have received numerous messages of him asking of sexual favours before allowing clients to see me ,” She said.

The legislator said her office was a public office and it wrong for my staff to do so airing other members of staff that they risk the same fate if they will get involved in such.

However, Speaking to this writer Wochwa refuted to the claims of embezzlement saying the MP should blame his office manager for the scam.

“I am not working with her since April cz she stopped my salary from January to March. She has not communicated to me so far of what is going on,” said the Bungoma county Ford Kenya youth leader.

“I was only signatory  to the account but not an AI holder, the MP should be honest and tell the truth,” said Wocha .

Wochwa’s the problem with statutory deductions arose because of the delay by parliamentary commission in releasing cash which they only do after three months.

“KRA had a problem because of penalties and it was not my mistake, it is parliament which as delayed the funds,” he said.

He said his exit from the office was more than what the MP was saying because it arose from so many personal issues.
