(+) KILIFI LOST OVER SH50 MILLION, ASSEMBLY TOLD
The Kilifi assembly is probing whether officials colluded to loot Sh51 million from the IFMIS system. The amount stolen from Kilifi County bank accounts has risen from the previously stated Sh45 million to Sh51 million. It is suspected that there are cartels at the Central Bank and five banks where the money was deposited as well within the county government. Finance Chief Officer Ben Kai said that a report has revealed that Sh51, 209, 775 was lost. The revelations come barely three days after 10 county officials were suspended for allegedly being behind the corrupt deal.
