The anti-corruption court has ordered former Kenya Power boss Ben Chumo to report to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Friday.

Chumo is to appear before 4pm to record a statement in relation to the corruption case against him that is before the court.

The directive comes after the investigating officer filed an application through the prosecution.

Chumo’s lawyers however expressed fear saying that today being Friday, Chumo and his co-accused might be re-arrested and spend the entire weekend in custody.

Their concern is what pushed the magistrate to indicate a specific time for them to appear at the DCI headquarters.

In a bizarre twist of events, crucial files related to the Kenya Power scandal were reported missing four days ago.

The Director of Public Prosecution has since ordered investigations into the incident.
