The EACC’s investigations revealed that no procurement was conducted. The money supposedly for the construction of the Kahuruko-Kijabbe Road was later transferred into individuals’ and business enterprises accounts but there was no road construction.

Multiple Charges Recommended

The EACC has recommended to the DPP that charges be brought against Project Committee officials, NG-CDF Committee Members and former District Accountants with multiple counts of conspiracy to commit an offence of corruption; fraudulent acquisition of public property; fraudulently making payments from public revenue for a service not rendered; willful failure to comply with the law relating to the management of funds and financial misconduct.
