The Director of Public prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has recommended the arrest and prosecution of Garissa Governor Nadhif Jama and seven others in connection with procurement malpractices.
From the files presented by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Tobiko says that Jama should be charged for the irregular leasing of ambulances from Emergency Plus (EPlus) Medical services Limited, a company that is fully owned by the Kenya Red Cross.
The governor has however refuted the claims on more than one occasion saying they followed the due process in carrying out the transaction.
Source told Nepjournal.com that the ambulances were leased at the rate of 20,000 per day or 600,000 per month.
