BOMET COUNTY OFFICIAL EARNS A 5-YEAR JAIL TERM FOR CORRUPTION

June 21, 2017: The Bomet County procurement head has been sentenced to five years in prison for corruption.

Ezekiel Chirchir was found guilty by a magistrates court in Kericho of fraudulent practice and abuse of office in the procurement of six ambulances worth Kshs3.6 million from the Kenya Red Cross (Emergency Plus Medical Services).

''It is public knowledge that a huge percentage of corruption-related cases in Kenya revolves around the issues of procurement, Principal Magistrate J.R. Ndururi said when handing out the sentence, adding: It is, therefore, necessary where clear evidence has emerged of malpractice in the procurement process that the court should hand down a sentence that will send a harsh message to those involved in such malpractice.''

Chirchir was convicted on two counts of charges. He will serve five years for each count without the option of a fine. Twelve other people charged with him for various economic crimes and procurement irregularities were acquitted. The case went to court following investigations by the Nakuru office of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission into allegations of economic crimes and procurement irregularities at Bomet County.
