In a statement by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the two have been arrested following irregular payment of Ksh 68M by the Nairobi city Government to Wachira Mburu, Mwangi and company advocates.

The money was paid in two installments of KSh 10 million and Ksh 58 million between June of 2011 and January of 2014.

A member of the firm, Steven Kariuki was instructed by Aduma Owuor, the former AG Director Legal Affairs and now an MP of Nyakach constituency, to act on behalf of the city council without following the right procedure.

Investigations revealed that no services had been rendered in the County following the payments, hence, the entire amount is said to have been embezzled.

EACC initially submitted the duplicate inquiry file to the office of the DPP on December 11, 208 and upon perusal and consideration of the evidence therein a number of gaps were identified that required to be covered by way of further investigations before changes could be filed in court.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has given consent for the prosecution of the matter.
