23 senior officials fired over multi-million scandal

The scandal was unearthed after an internal audit

According to the Sunday Standard, sources at the Power company revealed that employees linked to the multi-million scandal unearthed by an internal audit, will receive their termination letters on Monday.

The internal audit report disclosed that some KPLC employees registered companies to award themselves contracts and sneaked in unqualified companies into the KPLC database, with 345 companies discovered to have fake documents shortlisted for tenders.

The report also put several supervisors on the spot for allegedly receiving bribes from contactors running into millions of shillings.

KPLC employees are also accused of co-owning the companies with their spouses, children or other relatives.

“After the audit report, the Company has decided to thoroughly investigate all contract work and take appropriate action where need be. This is to ensure that all work given to contractors meets the specified standards,” said the Kenya Power Managing Director Ken Tarus.

Employees said to be on their way out to pave way for investigations are those named in the audit report.
