In Summary
  • Finance and Planning Executive Kigo Njenga and his Chief Officer Faith Njeri Harrison also appeared on Monday.
  • EACC is also looking into claims that Governor Ferdinand Waititu allegedly used his position to siphon millions of shillings.
  • Former Roads executive John Mugwe appeared at EACC’s Integrity Centre last week.

Investigations over alleged massive theft of public resources in the Kiambu County government appear to be gaining momentum after 13 current and former senior officials were Tuesday questioned by detectives from the anti-graft agency.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has cast its net wider as it traces alleged stolen funds from the county since 2016.

This is why some officers who served under former Governor William Kabogo could be persons of interest to the detectives.

Eight executive committee members, three former county ministers, legal officer Josephine Muritu and former chief of staff Gibson Mburu, who resigned last month, were quizzed Tuesday.

SUMMONSES

Finance and Planning Executive Kigo Njenga and his Chief Officer Faith Njeri Harrison, who has been a regular guest at the EACC headquarters at Integrity Centre, also appeared on Monday, under summonses dated June 7 and sent to them by Mr John Lolkoloi, the EACC deputy director for forensic investigations.

The agency is also looking into claims that Governor Ferdinand Waititu allegedly used his position to siphon millions of shillings from the county through fraudulent acquisition of public funds, conflict of interest and money laundering.
