The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has obtained orders to freeze assets of former Kakamega Wyciffe Oparanya.
The assets worth Ksh 28.9 million are in the middle of an investigation where the former Governor is accused of looting Ksh 1.3 billion during his tenure.
Issuing the orders was Justice Esther Maina who prohibited agents, employees or anyone from transferring the properties under probe for a period of six months, a period which the former Governor will be under investigation.

In August, Oparanya was detained for questioning alongside his wife over the said Ksh 1.3 billion scandal that occurred during his two terms as the county boss.
Other than proxies alleged to be involved, two of Wycliffe Oparanya’s companies namely Sesela Resources Limited and Sabema International Limited are under probe for the purchase of a house in Karen in Nairobi.
The house worth Ksh 89 million was purchased from Local Authorities Pension Trust Registered Trustees (LAPTRUST), a purchase which is under probe.
