Kisumu County Director of Communication Alloyce Ager confirmed that Mr. Aguya and Ms. Asuna had been served with letters of interdiction.

“The action against the two officers is clear in law and it is a requirement that once a public officer is facing criminal charges, he or she has to give way until the matter is put to rest,” Ager said.
