The MCAs have been asked to carry the original travel documents that they used for the trip. Two months ago three petitioners wrote to the EACC requesting them to investigate suspicious activities within the assembly. The petitioners in their letter had highlighted eight issues that had been brought to their attention by whistleblowers among them the Ugandan trip which they claimed none of the MCAs had gone to. The petitioners are part of a group known as the Siaya County Accountability Network (SCAN) and were represented in the letter by three people namely; John Ouma, James Wanga and Irene Atieno.
