41 Members of County Assembly from Siaya County have been summoned to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) offices to answer to questions concerning a trip to Uganda that never really took place. EACC is looking into claims they only traveled to the border, had their passports stamped, and came back to Kenya.
The MCAs allegedly pocketed Ksh.200,000 each for the trip to Uganda that never happened.
According to a report by CitizenTv a lobby group, Siaya County Accountability Network (SCAN), had previously written to the commission to investigate claims that the MCAs were given advance payment of the said amount for the non-existent trip.
SCAN, in its letter, further claimed that the MCAs only took their passports for stamping at the Busia border in order to get the pay but that they never actually crossed over to Uganda.
