Incidents where the public coffers have been looted by individuals entrusted with the safe keeping of them have been on the rise in the country over the past few years.
The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission has been doing its best to ensure that these officers of the public are brought to book for their heinous crimes.
This afternoon, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from Mombasa, the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission has filed a case where it is seeking the return of 78 Million shillings illegally acquired through a tender by one Anthony Muhanji.
Anthony Muhanji who is an employee of the Kenya Ports Authority is said to have acquired the money through a fictitious tender via his company a while back.
Here is the statement from the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission, "EACC has this afternoon filed a lawsuit in Mombasa High Court where it is seeking orders to compel one Mr. Antony Muhanji, a former KPA employee to pay the Government 78 Million shillings he is believed to have illegally acquired through a fraudulent tender awarded to his company by KPA."
Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development in the comments section below this article.
