Ministry of Education Staff Creates a Non-Existent School, Swindles Kshs 11 Million Taxpayers Money

Sleuths from Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) are probing a top staff in the Ministry of Education for swindling Kshs 11 million from the Ministry.

According to sources, the clerical officer is reported to have created a non-existent Day Secondary School and listing it on the government's system.

The school was listed in Kakamega County and benefited from Free Day Secondary Education Fund (FDSE) amounting to Kshs 11 million within a span close to an year.

The fraudulent scheme cane into the limelight after a publisher assigned to deliver textbooks to the school by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) couldn't trace the school's physical location.

Investigations disclosed that the suspect transferred the money on his personal account and used Kshs 2.5 million to purchase a car, 1.8 million to by a piece of land and Kshs 7 million withdrew in cash.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Maghoha has been in the front line in the fight against corruption and has been occasionally warning of dire consequences to those involved in such cases under his Ministry.
