There has been looting in the offices being used by the organization carrying out office auditing of the Mombasa County offices.
This has been confirmed by the Muslim for Human Rights (MUHURI) director Hussein Halid who said that the looting was done by two people whose identity is yet to be known.
Speaking to the media at the Nyali police station where he had accompanied the security guard who was on duty during the incident to record a statement, the MUHURI director said that the two people who looted the company were a male and a female.
According to the statement of the security guard, the two arrived at the apartment that the auditing crew is using as both house and office and asked for a room but ended up breaking into auditing office.
The MUHURI director confirmed that a laptop and a camera being used by the auditing crew are among the valuables that went missing after the incident.
Police have launched an investigation to identify the people behind the looting.
Fear has engulfed local residents who suspect that the looters intended to prejudice the ongoing auditing process of the Mombasa county offices that is aimed at flushing out ghost workers in the county payroll.
The auditing process being conducted by Ernest and Young auditing company has so far revealed that there exists more than 1 000 questionable county employees that are being paid, among them being 693 employees who share birthday, 295 underage employees and 37 employees being paid in triplicates.
