KES 2.3M stolen from Kisumu County revenue office

18 March 2014, 11:24 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - In a rather bizarre incident, gangsters broke into the Kisumu county revenue office Sunday night and stole over KES 2.3 million.

According to the acting city Manager, Christopher Rusana, the stolen money was from the weekend's parking collection and other levies normally banked on Monday.

Speaking to the media, Rusana said four clerical officers working at the office have recorded statements with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

He said police were also investigating claims that a woman who is alleged to have gone to the office claiming that she was working for the Nairobi county government was part of the gang involved in the heist.

“Our two night guards were found in the morning by one of our staff lying unconsciously in one of the rooms and it appears they were drugged by the suspects,” he added.

There were also reports that some computer accessories were physically damaged during the incident but cheques totaling to KES 672 879 were not stolen.

“We have since invited the criminal investigation department to carry out investigations into the matter with a view to arrest the culprits,” he said.

Rusana also admitted that they could not rule out the possibility of an inside job as the safe is only known to the staff of the council.
