Detectives are investigating an incident in which the Nairobi County administration lost Sh83 million from its bank accounts.
Police investigations have so far narrowed down to three companies that are accused of conspiring to drain the accounts between October 2018 and February 25, 2019 when the funds were discovered missing. Accounts associated to companies named; Waylin Merchants, Fidelity Telacoms and Rayfa Construction Services were on Tuesday frozen through a court order.
Lead investigator Urbanus Munguti also requested the court to order Equity Bank to provide details of transactions for the accounts during the period when the funds were siphoned from the accounts.
The courts granted the warrant to also compel Kenya Commercial Bank to appear in court as a witness against Mully Office Equipment. Investigators are yet to establish how the millions were stolen from county coffers, however, they have been granted access to bank statements to understand the paper trail.
