Assembly Board members Summoned by EACC IMAGE/FILES
Last week EACC summoned former head of Nairobi County Assembly Service Board who is the current CAS for Public Service And Gender Beatrice Elachi over unsanctioned hiring and placements during her term.
In letter dated September 22 that was seen by Taarifa News and which was directed to the clerk of the assembly, EACC is requesting for several documents to probe the alleged irregular promotion of staff that has been ongoing since 2017.
The Anti Graft agency has since written to the assembly requesting to be furnished with over 27 documents to aid in the ongoing investigations
