EACC says Ksh 51M stolen by Kilifi County officials


The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Friday, November 18 said that the investigations at the County Government of Kilifi had pointed at a possible loss of Ksh 51 million.
Addressing the press in Mombasa, EACC deputy Chief Executive Officer, Michael Mubea, said that the anti-graft officials had already grilled several county officers suspected to have played a role in the embezzlement of public funds.
 
He said that the suspects will be arrested and produced in court in a fortnight.
Sources at the Kilifi County offices said that passwords of the officials were used to withdraw the money by tampering with the Integrated Financial Management Systems (IFMIS).
 
This comes only a few days after EACC revealed that five governors will be arrested and taken to court over misuse of public funds.
 
On the other hand, Deputy Chief justice, Philomena Mwilu, challenged the investigating agencies in the country to ensure they do a good job, adding that poor investigations delay cases.
