Julius Korir, the Devolution PS has been questioned this morning by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations. The PS is being questioned over the use of over 1.2 billion that was used in the purchase of relief food. Korir was set to appear before the detectives on November 8th but he had asked for more time as he was away attending a UN meeting in Scotland.
Having taken over the ministry early in 2021, the detectives are investigating claims of misappropriation of funds at the ministry. Prior to the appointment, he was the Principal Secretary in the State Department for Youth Affairs, Ministry of Information, Community and Technology and Youth Affairs.
The officers also said they will also talk to the other persons at the department as part of the probe before sending the file with the recommendations to the office of public prosecutions.
The department transfers the food and funds to various counties under the oversight of County Commissioners and Deputy County Commissioners.
