Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has ordered for investigations into circumstances under which documents meant for prosecution of Kenya Power senior managers went missing.

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.
