EACC update on Samburu Governor’s raid
The EACC detectives raided the homes of Samburu Governor, both in Nairobi and in Samburu as they search for files and documents that can help in the investigation over Kes 2 billion misuse.
We are also informed that also raided were residences and offices of county chief officers implicated in the alleged scandal.
“We are targeting the governor, chief officers, directors and contractors for wanton misappropriation of public funds amounting to Sh2 billion,” an EACC source told Nation.
EACC has released a statement on the same raid
EACC says Samburu County leaders formed companies and awarded themselves tenders worth over Sh700m and it is thus seeking to freeze their assets, bank accounts.
Neither the Governor nor County Officers implicated have spoken.
