Former Garsen Member of Parliament, Danson Mungatana has been arrested by detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

The former legislator was arrested in connection with the disappearance of Sh51 million from Kilifi County Government coffers.

Mungatana was arrested alongside six other people, among them four Kilifi County Government officials and two business people.

The six are, Benaya Kisaka Mugavana (businessman), Lucy Wanjugu Kibogo (businesswoman), Josephine Felix Muramba (former Principal Accountant), John Kahindi Kalume (Senior Accountant), Paul Teido Mwazo (Deputy Director- Accounting) and Ebrahim Mwanje Zia (Procurement Officer).

The commission said it is still pursuing 14 other suspects who are still at large.

According to EACC, investigations revealed that none of the companies linked to the saga delivered any goods or services to Kilifi County.

The companies named as beneficiaries are: Daima One Enterprises, Zohal Services Limited, Makegra Supplies Limited, Kilingi Investments Company Limited, Leadership Edge Associated Limited and Johazi Investment Company.

It was discovered that the Local Service Orders (LSO) used were fake and did not originate from the county government.

EACC also found that County Government officials processed and approved payments for goods/services that were not delivered.

The suspects who will be arraigned at Malindi Law Courts will face charges of fraudulent acquisition of public property, uttering false documents and dealing with proceeds of crime.
