What you need to know:

  • In Marsabit, EACC is investigating the procurement of relief food that was reportedly bought last year at inflated prices.
  • In Kilifi, EACC is looking into two different issues. In the first, detectives are trying to unearth whether the county flouted any law in paying legal fees to different law firms from 2015 to 2019.

  • For Ms Ngilu, EACC detectives are investigating whether her administration violated procurement laws and processes in the awarding of more than Sh150 million contracts.

The anti-corruption watchdog is investigating at least eight more governors on abuse of office and corruption as the renewed war on graft continues to gather momentum.
