Former MP Danson Mungatana has been apprehended by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) sleuths.

Mungatana was arrested on Wednesday night in Nairobi and transferred to Malindi. He and 21 others have been accused of fraudulently acquiring Ksh.51.5 million from Kilifi County coffers.

A businesswoman Lucy Wanjugu Kibogodi, a director of Zohal Services Limited, linking him to the theft said he used her company to steal Ksh.9.1 million from the county government.

Daima One Enterprises, Zohali Services Limited, Makegra Supplies Limited, Kilingi Investments Company Limited, Leadership Edge Associated Limited and Johazi Investment Company are some of the companies that received the monies.

The companies EACC said did not offer any services nor supplied goods to the County government of Kilifi.

The Local Service Orders (LSO) used were also fake as they did not originate from the county government.

The suspects will face charges of fraudulent acquisition of public property, uttering false documents and dealing with proceeds of crime.
