The Kenya Anti Corruption Commission investigating alleged cases of massive corruption at the Kisii Municipal Council. KACC's officer in charge of Western Kenya David Too said he had dispatched a team to probe the council after receiving several complaints from the area. "My officers have completed investigations into other cases but we have been informed of more corruption allegations," Too said in his Kisumu office.

Last week, Kisii mayor Sam Nyangeso visited the offices claiming that there were cases of massive corruption and land grabbing at the council. Nyangeso termed the council as a "swamp of corruption" and asked KACC to launch investigations and bring those culpable to book.

The mayor claimed that more than Sh20 million cannot be accounted for in the five months. "The money has been withdrawn from the council accounts without supporting documents forcing us to freeze council accounts," he added. Too said the claims together with those of grabbing public and private land will be probed.

Nyangeso said more than 100 private and public plots have been grabbed since the year 2003. He accused fellow councilors of colluding to grab land and sell. Two chief officers clerk Jim Maina Chira and Treasurer Albert Sese have since been transferred. However, Sese has reportedly declined to hand over until KACC completes its investigations.

Chira was transferred to Ijara and Sese to Lamu. Yesterday, Sese was still in the office together with the new treasurer identified as Ngutu from Runyenjes.
