SEE ALSO :Samburu Governor Lenolkulal arrestedOn Tuesday, High Court Judge Hedwig Ong’udi directed that the accounts of Daayo Construction & General Supplies Limited and Fine Trust Construction Co Ltd be frozen for six months to allow EACC to complete its investigations. According to court documents, tender number WCG/416/2017-2018 was irregularly awarded to Daayo Construction & General Supplies Limited, whose directors are Ahmed Abdi Jimale and Osman Abdi Jimale. The money was not contained in the budget of the county for the financial year. EACC obtained a warrant to probe the firm and realised that Sh26 million had been transferred to its account on July 2, 2018. A day after Daayo was paid, the firm wired Sh14 million to Cosmos Cars Limited to ostensibly purchase one of the cars. On the same day, July 3, 2018, Daayo transferred the balance of Sh12 million to Fine Trust Construction Co Ltd.
