This time he was caught with stolen electric poles belonging to Mr. Evans Maburi, a contractor who works with Kenya Power.
According to our snoop on the ground, Apoko had wanted to secure electricity poles to enable him get electricity connection. He has been heard in several occasions mentioning the same.
According to the eye witness, Apoko sent his personal assistant Mr. Stanley Sibota to steal the poles from Mr. Maburi’s house at night. The man secured the poles and took them straight to the MCA’s home.
Upon realizing in the morning that some poles were missing, Mr. Maburi reported to the police who with the tip-off from members of the public traced the poles to Apoko’s home.
The Mca has not been able to connect power to his home and it’s believed he was planning to use the poles on the same.
Apoko was not at home at the time but he was called and informed. He immediately rushed home to clear the mess. He allegedly gave the officer who was in charge of the operation Ksh10,000 to kill the case and also pleaded with Mr. Maburi not to take action.
