Kidero in fresh trouble over Sh8billion loss

Kidero and nine others are being investigated.

Dr Kidero is being investigated for allegations of successive withdrawals of over Sh7.8 million from several county collection accounts between April 2014 and August 2017, when he was the governor.

The Financial Reporting Centre (FRC) has written to the DCI boss George Kinoti and the EACC's Eliud Wabukala over the matter.

Already the EACC through its spokesperson Yasin Amaro has confirmed that the Commission received the said letter from the FRC demanding a speedy investigation.

“I can confirm that EACC received the report from FRC and commenced investigations immediately. However, I can’t share details of the probe,” he said as quoted by the adding that the investigations are at an advanced stage.

Among other former officials who will be investigated are nine county officials, directors of four pharmaceutical companies and bank officials, who authorised the dubious transactions.

The nine are being investigated over the suspicious transfers of Sh7,761,474,162 from multiple bank accounts belonging to the County.
