The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has summoned 29 members of the Homa Bay County Assembly for the second time for suspected public monies abuse.
The County Assembly Speaker and other House officials have also been asked to give testimony in connection with the commission’s probe into the MCAs travel to Mombasa last year.
The commission has called the MCAs to record statements as part of the continuing inquiry into the September 2021 trip to Mombasa, according to a letter signed by E.Otiko of the EACC and written to the assembly clerk.
From January 17, 2022, through January 31, 2022, the MCAs have been summoned to appear before the anti-graft commission for an investigative interview.
The 25 MCAs, as well as House Majority Leader George Okello and Speaker Elizabeth Ayoo, will appear at the commission’s Kisii Town headquarters to provide remarks on the trip.
Following investigations into the contract between the County Assembly Service Board and a construction company that was awarded a tender for the construction of the proposed assembly offices and a Mombasa trip that took place between September 8 and September 12, 2021, EACC summoned 25 MCA and members of the assembly service board in December last year.
