Four former senior Nairobi county officials have been acquitted of corruption charges by a Milimani court.

While dismissing the charges against the former officials, chief magistrate Kennedy Bidali faulted the prosecution saying that whereas the four were accused of paying for goods not supplied, there is evidence that the goods were supplied and services rendered.

The four included former Chief finance officer Jimmy Kiamba, former County Secretary Lilian Ndegwa, former head of county treasury Stephen Osiro and a former secretary Regina Rotich.

TEN COUNTS

The former officials had denied a total of ten counts in relation to a Sh17.9 million fraud case.

They were accused of, among other charges, forging documents, abuse of office and paying for services not rendered.

But the magistrate ruled that although there was evidence of overcharging for blinds supplied and fitted in Kiamba’s office, the section they were charged with was wrong.

This is because the goods were supplied.

He also said there was evidence of selective prosecution because other persons who should have been in the dock were not charged.
