Former REA Chief Executive Officer questioned over graft claims

NAIROBI, Kenya Sep 28 – FORMER Chief Executive Officer of the Rural Electrification Authority (REA) Ng’ang’a Munyu was on Friday questioned by detectives at the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC).

Ng’ang’a, who is now the Economic Advisor in Tharaka Nithi County, was summoned over corruption allegations at the authority when he served there as CEO.

A senior detective at EACC told Capital FM News that Munyu was required to answer questions on issues raised in a report of internal audit that was ordered by the board.

In the report, detectives said, there are glaring discrepancies on power projects undertaken in schools between 2015 and 2017.

He is among several officials at REA lined up for questioning over the outcome of the audit report that was commissioned by the board.

A source at REA told Capital FM that the audit was undertaken following fears that millions may have been lost during the implementation of the schools electrification project due to discrepancies noted.

“To this end, the Board finds the following to bear the largest responsibility over the issues highlighted in the Report- CEO, Manager, Internal Audit and Procurement, Authority Secretary, Manager ICT, and Manager, Human Resource and Administration, the report reads in part.
