A Wajir County official and a bank manager have Monday morning presented themselves at the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) headquarters in Nairobi.

Mr Daud Abdullah Omar, the Finance executive, and Siyad Ibrahim Ahmed, the manager of KCB Bank in Wajir, presented themselves at Integrity Centre at 6am.

The two were summoned by EACC in connection to the embezzlement of Sh26.1 million.

This comes exactly two days after detectives from EACC and police officers arrested Mr Jeff Kithinji, the head of county treasury and Mr Ahmed Sahal Omar, the Wajir County secretary, over the same issue.

On Saturday an EACC official said that the county government and KCB Bank conspired and irregularly withdrew the from the county's account.

The two are expected to be arraigned later Monday.
