DCI probes four companies accused of defrauding City Hall Sh 83 million

By Japheth Ogila | Feb 26th 2019 | 1 min read

The police have opened investigations against four companies accused of defrauding Nairobi County Sh83 million in a mysterious scheme.

In an affidavit filed in court on February 26, 2019, Nairobi County through the Directorate of Criminal Investigations officer named Urbanus Munguti seek to investigate three companies accused of draining Nairobi Country's accounts.

The companies are Waylin Merchants, Fidelity Telacoms and Rayfa Construction Services.

The affidavit states that the transactions took place on the period ranging from October 22, 2018 to February 25, 2019. The case was reported yesterday, February 25, 2019.

Mr Urbanus Munguti and Nairobi County have therefore urged the court to freeze the accounts of the accused companies so that proper investigations can take place.

They also want Equity Bank to provide details of the accounts, such as bank statements for the three-month period.

In a separate affidavit, Nairobi County through another DCI officer named William Rutoh also wants the Kenya Commercial Bank to appear in court as a witness against Mully Office Equipments in the case.

 The court has yielded to their plea, granting the officer a warrant to conduct investigations on the transactions of the company for the period of October 1, 2018, to February 25, 2019.

The exercise will entail freezing the account to allow investigators to examine the bank statements over the period and documents of opening the accounts.

However, the affidavits do not reveal the manner in which the millions were syphoned out from City Hall accounts.
