In the report tabled before the National Assembly Wednesday, Auditor General Edward Ouko says that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Headquarters in Nairobi have lost up to Sh193.03 million.

"The inspection at the DCI Headquarters indicated 543,108 Police Clearing Certificates were issued, out of which Sh542.19 million was realised as application fees. However, the statement reflects a collection of Sh350.08 million,"the report says.

Kisumu Central Sub-County Administration Police Commander Office, where it was noted that despite the station was paid Sh4.4 million for the provision of armed security services by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF), the cash was not surrendered to the ministry.
