“At CoG, only the chairman has the privilege of using a chopper while on official duties. This must be logged in as an official to be legal. However, governors have been using choppers but the payments cannot be traced back to their counties,’ said a source.

It costs Ksh. 170,000 to hire a chopper for only one hour in Kenya.

“To get the chopper, you send an email to the CEO of the Council of Governors who picks for you the chopper from the list of the prequalified companies and will generate an invoice to be settled by debiting the county account,” Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya told theStandard.
