Thursday March 3 2016

Anti-corruption officials Thursday raided Siaya County government offices and took away documents and computers said to be containing vital information.

The more than 20 officials from Nairobi and Kisumu who were accompanied by police officers raided the offices of the county secretary Kepha Marube, legal adviser Leonard Okanda, procurement, health and finance departments.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission officers also raided Mr Marube and Mr Okanda’s houses.

The Nation established that team of officers were dispatched to the office of County health minister Olum Gondi, Cleophas Ombogo (Finance) and the County Secretary over alleged corruption deals.

In the finance office, they confiscated the files containing a list of contractors and a number of computers.

Mr Marube was among public servants mentioned in the list that President Uhuru Kenyatta tabled in the National Assembly and handed to the anti-graft team for investigations.

The raid comes barely two months after the sacking of the county director of internal audit, Mr Collins Owino.
