Nairobi - 5 Kenya Meat Commision employees have been arraigned in court for the theft of KES 11 million belonging to the organization.
The five were arraigned before the Milimani Law Courts Friday to answer to charges of conspiring to defraud the organization of the money.
Managing Commissioner Ibrahim Isaak, Esther Ngari (Quality Assurance & Research Manager) Francis Mutuse (Accounts Assistant), Ruth Mwangi (Accountant) and Patrick Mutemi appeared before Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi of the anti- corruption court.
They are among public officials named by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) over graft allegations. They are facing charges of conspiracy to commit an economic crime by defrauding the institution.
The court ordered them to pay a bail of KES 100,000 or a bond of KES 500,000 to be released.
The five were mentioned as part of an Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC report released two months ago over corruption in the public service.
