DPP Haji orders arrest of ex-Kenya School of Law officials in graft case

By Mercy Asamba | June 23rd 2020 at 11:43:44 GMT +0300

Six former employees of the Kenya School of Law and six other directors are staring at prosecution over the illegal payment of Sh198 million to firms associated with them.

The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji (pictured) on Tuesday ordered the arrest of the twelve, including former Kenya School of Law Deputy Director Morris Kiwinda, for receiving money for goods and services that were not supplied to the school.

Mr Kiwinda is now the Secretary Policy and Coordination at the Office of the Deputy President.

They are accused of colluding to have the money paid out to companies owned by some of the senior employees at the school.

According to the prosecution, investigators established that the fraud was executed by the bank signatories to the Kenya School of Law accounts who would sign to effect payment to different entities.

"The business entities were not prequalified to supply any goods and indeed never supplied any goods or services to the Kenya School of Law," Haji said in a statement to newsrooms.

"This, therefore, means that they were fraudulently paid the said monies."

Haji said the officials involved in the scheme are: Assistant Director of Finance and Administration Amos Kabue Mwangi, Finance Manager Frank Kackson Were, accountants Ephraim Thuku, Hudson Amwai Lwigado and Achiro Nobert Gondi.

The directors are: Paul Lovi Andenga (Ademwa Enterprises), Fridah Ngoya Wanda (Ngoya Cosmetics and Frigoya Investments), Alfred Murange Lwigado (Alfrane Investments) alongside Dennis Sam Achiro and Kenneth Ochieng, owners of Deskench Investments.

Already Mr Kiwindi, Mwangi, Were, Lwigado, Gondi, Lovi, Ngoya and Ochieng have been arrested. Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has asked the other to present themselves to the Integrity Centre in Nairobi.

The DPP said he approved charges against the lot after reviewing the investigation report and the inquiry file tabled before them.

"I am therefore satisfied that there is sufficient evidence to support charges under the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act," Haji said.

The investigations into the alleged fraud was conducted by the EACC.
