Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Thursday raided the Kisii County Public Service Board office and the Human Resource Department in a probe on irregular employment in the county.
The raid, which lasted for a few hours saw the officers confiscate documents and computers.
The officers are said to be investigating irregular employment at the county especially towards the August 8, 2017 General Election.
EACC Deputy CEO Michael Mubea confirmed the operation saying: “We undertook a search and obtained important documents which will assist our investigations into irregular recruitment of staff.”
Kisii County Secretary Patrick Lumumba said some officials of the county took advantage of the electioneering period to irregularly issue employment letters, adding that disciplinary action had been taken against the said officers.
Lumumba added that plans are underway to conduct a head count to fish out ghost employees.
