Detectives from the anti-graft agency on Friday raided private residences and offices of three officials at the Pyrethrum Processing Company of Kenya (PPCK) headquarters in Nakuru town over corruption claims.

The team from the the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) confiscated documents suspected to be related to corruption activities in the company.

The investigators raided the houses and offices of the company’s Managing Director Paul Lolwerikoi, marketing director and the accountant.

The documents that were seized are suspected to be related to flouted procurement procedures, illegal leasing of the company’s assets and controversial tenders and contract documents.

The commission’s South Rift Deputy Manager Christine Natome said its officers took action after receiving reports linking senior officials at the firm with corruption dealings.
