‘PAY DOUBLE FOR LOST CASH’
Last month, Anti-Corruption court chief magistrate John Oyiengo sentenced three Nyeri county officials to three years in jail for economic crimes involving the irregular award of tenders and abuse of office. They are John Maina (Lands executive), Martin Wamwea (Finance) and Simon Wachira (chief of staff). There were eight witnesses in the case. The court ruled that the former officials each should pay twice the amount of money lost or go to jail for three years.
