EACC Detectives raid Thika County Government offices

The  Ethics  and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers  raided the Thika Sub-County government  offices  on Thursday and confiscated a safe, files and computers believed to contain crucial information in their ongoing inquest into the county government’s corruption allegations.

The  detectives arrested two secretaries in the office of the Finance Chief Officer in the Sub County in the six hour raid after ransacking several offices, especially the accounts department.

They  arrived  in  seven  vehicles  accompanied by fully armed police officers who combed the premises until the operation  ended at around 5.pm.

Their  presence  sent  shock waves to the county staff who work in the premise, with many forced to flee their offices out of  fear.

Speaking  after  the operation, the County government lawyer Michael Osundwa said that they had cooperated well with  the  officers.

He  said those arrested were innocent and would only help in investigations.

This  followed the early morning arrest of Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand  Waititu  by  EACC detectives  over  corruption allegations.
