Rigathi Gachagua, Mathira Member Of Parliament has been grilled today Monday, October 26th at the DCI headquarters in Nairobi over alleged swindling of 12.5 billion public funds.
The grilling comes a day after his bank accounts were frozen as detectives sought to know the source of the funds that had gone through his accounts. He is suspected to have used assignees to secure tenders through fraud using 22 companies with him as the sole beneficiary.
Detectives visited 5 counties, government parastatals, and the Mathira Constituency Development Fund when they were doing their investigations. It is suspected that he fraudulently won tenders from them.
An investigation file seen by reports shows that two hairdressers and a former mobile money transfer agent were awarded multimillion shilling tenders. The given tenders were meant for the National Government and Mathira Constituency CDF. However, according to Gachagua, the deals were not fraudulent.Follow us in social media:
