Fourteen top officials at the helm of the Kenya Power are expected to be arraigned  in court today over corruption charges, and the purchase of faulty transformers worth Sh4.5 billion.

 

Those expected in court include current Managing Director Ken Tarus and his predecessor Ben Chumo, and twelve other top officials who were arrested over the weekend.

 

George Kinoti who heads the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI ) confirmed that the said persons  will be in court as they were all in custody with their charges  ready.

Kinoti forwarded recommendations to the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji, who approved the charges and ordered their arrest.

 

Charges lined up include fraudulent acquisition of public property, aiding the commission of a felony and abuse of office among others.

 

Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter has since called for calm  following the arrests, emphasizing  that he is confident justice will be served.
