Former Devolution Principal Secretary Peter Mangiti, 15 others charged over NYS graft

Former Devolution Principal Secretary Peter Mangiti and 15 others were arrested yesterday over the NYS scandal after honouring summonses and presenting themselves to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

An arrest warrant was issued for eight other suspects who had not heeded the summonses, as police swung into action to ensure they are also charged in court.

The suspects, all senior officials at the Ministry of Devolution and Planning, were immediately herded into a bus at Nairobi’s Integrity Centre and driven to the Milimani Law Courts where they were charged with various offences.

It would appear none of the suspects, who included former director of finance Samuel Wechenje, did not know they would be arrested, as individuals who have appeared before the EACC for questioning in the past, have been allowed to leave after sessions with detectives.
