A section of top leaders of an assembly in key devolved unit are a distressed lot.
This is after they learnt that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) sleuths are probing a multi-million land transaction they handled.
The officials are said to have conspired to defraud an investor off his land.
They are said to have authorized the payment of Sh20 million to a businessman who is their ally after he presented a title deed purporting to own the land, which was purchased for the expansion of the assembly.
After the transaction, a contractor moved to the site and started construction and was given a down payment of Sh25 million to start the work, only for the real owner of the land to emerge and seek legal redress.
The contractor is said to have written to the assembly demanding to be paid Sh 80 million for breach of contract. The officials have now gone under.
