Former Kenya Power secretary Beatrice Meso and two others were presented in court today over lost report on faulty transformers a day after case against firm bosses adjourned.
Yesterday, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji revealed that the file containing evidence against Kenya Power managers had gone missing, forcing him to adjourn the case.
In a tweet, Haji says that the documents were under custody of Kenya Power.
While in court, prosecutor Alexander Muteti told chief magistrate Felix Kombo that the original ERC report prepared on the procurement of faulty transformers had mysteriously disappeared.
The accused persons include the immediate former MD Ken Tarus, his predecessor Ben Chumo and 12 others who were charged with conspiracy to defraud the parastatal of over Ksh409 million.
They reportedly purchased substandard transformers from Muwa Trading Company. The officials have also been accused of aiding fraudulent acquisition of Ksh202 million as payment for the supply of the transformers.
