EACC sleuths to give re­port on al­leged Sh5 bil­lion graft at Moi Univer­sity

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

EACC in­ves­ti­ga­tors will this week hand over a re­port on their ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tions into graft al­le­ga­tions at Moi Univer­sity, where close to Sh5 bil­lion is sus­pected to have been mis­used.

More than 40 top man­agers and em­ploy­ees have been ques­tioned over cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions at the in­sti­tu­tion, where a row over the po­si­tion of Vice Chan­cel­lor is yet to be re­solved.

Act­ing VC La­ban Ayiro met the EACC of­fi­cials sev­er­ally dur­ing the probe.

The ini­tial re­port will be for­warded to EACC chief ex­ec­u­tive Halake Waqo, who gave the in­ves­ti­ga­tors three weeks to hand in the first re­port.

Part of the money em­bez­zled in­cludes Sh600 mil­lion be­long­ing to the Moi Univer­sity Pen­sion Scheme. EACC se­nior deputy di­rec­tor Enock Otiko said the money was part of the on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
