loss of Ksh 600 million due to the payment of ghost workers

A financial scandal involving the loss of Ksh 600 million due to the payment of ghost workers has engulfed Nyamira County.


Reports indicate that senior officers at DCI in Nairobi are acting slowly on the case. Insiders say there is no progress in investigating and prosecuting those involved.


A source told us that key staff members within Nyamira County orchestrated the swindling of county funds in January and February by facilitating payments to non-existent employees.

In a letter dated February 5, 2024, DCI requested Nyamira County administration to provide several key pieces of information to facilitate their investigation into abuse of office. 


• Authority to integrate new staff.
• A list of new employees awaiting integration.
• A list of officers who have had payroll user rights since March 2023.
• We accept indemnity-signed forms from officers with payroll user rights.
• List of new employees who were paid in December 2023 and January 2024.

In a separate communication on the same day, DCI issued summonses to several key Nyamira County staff members to appear at the DCI Headquarters to record statements.
