EACC cracks whip on City Hall’s spending

25 October 2011, 11:04

Nairobi - The Acting Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission(EACC) has stopped “irregular” payments at City Hall worth Sh200 million to various companies including one closely linked to an assistant minister.

Peter Mwangi, head of investigations at the Anti-corruption watchdog and asset tracing said that the move was necessitated to pave way for investigations into suspected fraudulent transactions, in an interview with Daily Nation.

Mwangi said that one of the deals involved the council making payment of Sh70 million as down payment  of Sh155 million to private company as charges for garbage collection, which the anti-graft commission has now stopped pending investigations.

Also under investigation is the alleged purchase of a piece of land in Lang’ata, which the council in a September 8 memo by the acting director of legal Affairs,  A.J. Owuor, committed itself to paying an initial Sh60 million.
