Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Thursday raided the Kisii County Public Service Board office and the Human Resource Department in a probe on irregular employment in the county.
The raid, which lasted for a few hours saw the officers confiscate documents and computers.
The raid comes barely a week after activist Sam Okemwa toured the county with members of 4th estate and exposed a big mess in the Capital of South Nyanza.
EACC Deputy CEO Michael Mubea confirmed the operation saying: “We undertook a search and obtained important documents which will assist our investigations into irregular recruitment of staff.”
Kisii County Secretary Patrick Lumumba said some officials of the county took advantage of the electioneering period to irregularly issue employment letters, adding that disciplinary action had been taken against the said officers.
Lumumba added that plans are underway to conduct a head count to fish out ghost employees.
