He continued by saying that the same project under investigation had been completed back in 2006 as confirmed by KPC board chair John Ngumi, years before the accused joined the company.
The ruling saw the accused break into tears as the court was dismayed as to why they had been charged in the first place.
Magistrate Victor Wakumile sympathized with the accused in terms of resources and time they have spent. “I note that the accused have lost time and resources in their quest for freedom but unfortunately, that is life sometimes.” Said Wakumile
