They include Rose Esther Muthoni Wamuiya (Former CEC Member, Trade), Vincent Muiruri Wambui, Sophia Wairimu Karanja, Shadrack Kanyungo Ndirangu and Timothy Ngunjiri Kiragu.

 The suspects will be charged with offences relating to the fraudulent payment of Kes.13,000,000 to 6 suppliers who did not supply anything to the County Government.
