Court freezes Ketraco manager account over graft
The Anti-Corruption court has frozen accounts of a senior manager at Ketraco.
The accounts holding over Sh58 million were froze by Justice Esther Maina after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission submitted the holder, Peter Njehia (pictured above), was engaged in graft.
The court further blocked Njehia from transferring or withdrawing money including Sh13 million held as share capital at Stima Sacco, Sh11 million held as deposit at Alpa, Stima Sacco and Sh10 million held in the shares account.
Justice Maina issued the orders following an urgent application filed by the EACC which argued the money could be proceeds of crime.
EACC said it had been investigating Njehia , over claims he illegally and irregularly influenced tenders, procurement and payment of goods and services while serving as a senior manager, Supply Chain at Ketraco.
The Commission is currently investigating Njehia’s close family members, including his spouse Julie Hellen Matu together with companies and properties associated with them.
