The said money, Ksh 2 million has suddenly vanished. Both bodies that involved in the raid, the Police and Ethics and Anti-corruption Commissioners both give conflicting stories about who actually did carry the money from Deputy Governor’s home in Tunyai Tharaka South district.

According to Standard Media, Police Boss Mary Maina recounts that the detectives from EACC conducted the raid simultaneously in both Eliud Muriithi Mati (Deputy Governor) homes in Meru town and Tunyai Tharaka South district. The money was found in the Tunyai home, the Ksh 2 million in fake currency, however, now the EACC refute that they did indeed recover the money.

The anti-graft body said no money printing machine or fake currency was recovered. The commission’s Chief Executive Officer, Hallake Wako, reported that the said detectives recovered only Sh900,000 and not from Mati’s home but from a clinic owned by Dr Mati’s wife in Meru town.

According to Standard Media, EACC also said they had recovered what the commission described as “very useful documents” but would not divulge the contents of the said documents.

So where did the money go to?
