Earlier this week, nine government officials in Nandi County were arrested over missing construction materials worth millions of shillings.
The missing materials, bought by the government, were to be used in constructing 60 Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) centres.
The arrested officials were from the Department of Education and included Education Chief Officer David Sang, ECD director Julius Too, ECD Project Manager Eliud Mosbei and Procurement Officer Joseah Kogo.
Last Friday, Mosbei and Kogo were arraigned before a Kapsabet court charged with stealing 400 bags of cement and 637 iron sheets from the county government.
The charge sheet, read before resident magistrate Boniface Wachira, stated that on diverse dates between March 22 and April 26, jointly with others not before court, they stole 400 bags of cement valued at 324,000 and 637 pieces of iron sheets valued at Sh1,146,000.
The ECD Project Manager and Procurement head pleaded not guilty to the charges and were each released on Sh300,000 bond, pending mention of the case on May 8.
Now, it is reported that Governor Stephen Sang has resulted to exiting all WhatsApp forums after pressure from the public became too much.
Nandi residents are believed to be sick and tired of Sang’s scandalous regime and plan to hold street protests on Friday over the rampant cases of corruption in the county.
