EACC detectives pounce on KEBS MD Bernard Njiraini
Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission on Thursday arrested Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) Managing Director Benard Njiraini.
Njiraini, reports say, has been accused of continuously failing to comply with investigation officers thus frustrating the timely conclusion of the probe.
“Today, EACC arrested Mr. Benard Njiraini as a penal consequence of failing to comply with a Notice issued to him pursuant to Section 27 and Section 66 of the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act No. 3 of 2003. This is with a view of obtaining the said documents and preferring charges against him for his contravention,” a statement from the anti-graft agency read.
EACC has been probing alleged procurement irregularities and payment of bribes in the tendering process for provision pre-export conformity of goods, used motor vehicles, mobile equipment and spare parts by KEBS.
