DCI Goes After Senator, MP Over ANC’s Ksh56 Million Theft
The police are investigating a Senator and a Member of Parliament after Amani National Congress (ANC) launched a formal complaint regarding Ksh56 million missing funds.
The two, Nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi and Senator Petronilla Were are expected to record statements with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)
The two failed to account for the missing Sh56 million used during the campaign period in which they held top positions at the political party.
MP Osotsi was the Secretary General while Senator Were held the Executive Director position of ANC at the time.
In a letter written to the National Assembly, the detectives mentioned to the clerks of the two houses, Parliament and Senate, that the two should urgently appear before the DCI.
“To enable us to conclude investigations on the matter, we kindly but urgently require the said nominated senator to report to DCI headquarters on Monday, 15th October 2018 at 0900 hours for statement recording,” read the letter.
The two acknowledged receiving the letters but Mr. Osotsi claimed that it was an intimidation attempt over his case in progress.
Mr Osotsi has since seemingly fallen out with a section of ANC lawmakers including party leader Musalia Mudavadi and has in the past been supporting ODM leader Raila Odinga's agenda.
The office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations is investigating funds misappropriation of the election period between January 2016 and December 2017.
