The officials were convicted guilty of nine charges ,created a forged document ,  circulated it into the public ,tax evasion among others.

According to justice Esther maina’s decreed  total fine of Sh9.6million was to be paid or each to serve a 12 years jail-term.

The magistrate Kennesy Bidali had found the defendants  not guilty in January 2018 ,which he termed as bereft evidence. Justice Maina said that the magistrate was mistaken for  giving a verdict of not guilty ,since their was adequate evidence.

“Mr Kiamba and Ms Ndegwa acted in blatant violation of the law governing public procurement and ought not to have been acquitted. It is my finding therefore that the magistrate erred in acquitting them when the prosecution had produced overwhelming evidence of proving their guilt,” Justice Maina decreed.
