Jubilee Party Nandi County Senate nominee Cherargei Kiprotich now claims the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) is hiding vital information in relation to the amount of money that was found during a raid in the house of Nandi County Chief Officer in charge of Roads and Infrastructure, Alex Buigut.
Sh5.74 million and a bulk of tender and other government business documents belonging to Nandi County was recovered during the Friday night raidat the private apartment belonging to Buigut in Langas estate, Eldoret town.
However addressing the press in Eldoret on Monday, Cherargei claimed the amount of money recovered from the house was more than the one reported.
He now wants the EACC chairman Bishop Eliud Wabukhala to overhaul its regional officers.
"There are EACC officials who are working to help exonerate corrupt public officers in the country and this is why I am asking Bishop Wabukhala to do an overhaul of its staff especially in regional offices," noted Cherargei.
He further claimed that Nandi county has lost over Sh3 billion due to corruption.
"We need investigations into corruption in Nandi county to be hastened because locals have suffered a lot. The roads are in pathetic conditions, hospitals have no drugs and no bursaries were issued for the past four years," noted Cherargei.
