Man stole 2700 bags Mumias Sugar

02 July 2015, 18:34 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Keriako Tobiko has received a file on alleged theft of 2780 bags of sugar from Mumias Sugar Company by one of its former manager.

Tobiko said he has gone through the file forward to his office by the Director of Criminal Investigations and pointed out that it has sufficient evidence for prosecution.

“Having independently perused the file, I am satisfied that there is sufficient evidence disclosed to charge the suspect, and I have accordingly directed prosecution to ensue as recommended by the DCI,” said Tobiko.

The former Business Development Manager for Mumias Sugar Company, Peter Hongo implicated in the theft of the 2780 bags will now have to prove his innocence in court after following Tobiko’s approval of the DCI file.

Tobiko who appeared before the Senate’s Legal Affairs committee last week said investigations into mismanagement and graft practices in Mumias Sugar factory was being probed concurrently by both the DCI and the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC).

He had said the EACC was investigating into massive corruption practices by its managers while the DCI was probing the looting of 3 000 bags of sugar.

Tobiko had assured the committee that the DCI investigations file was at the final stage and that his office was expecting it any time for his direction of prosecution.

“Investigations into Mumias Sugar company graft are being conducted concurrently by two agencies where the DCI file is being finalized and the EACC investigation is at advanced stage,” Tobiko had said.
