Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) have launched into suspected money laundering at the Nairobi County Government.
According to the Star, the DCI sleuths are looking into nine companies who are reported to have received money for services they did not render.
They have since requested for documents to commence their investigation including budgets allocated during the period.

“Kindly furnish us with the budget approvals for the items that were supplied by the companies and the requisitions by the user departments relating to all the companies,” said DCI
The detectives have also requested to get all relevant tender procedures undertaken before the companies were awarded including the LPO’s issued at the time.
“Also avail all records of LPO’s issued to the companies as well as all payment vouchers with all attachments in respect to the companies,” said DCI
The Star further revealed that they will look into the receipts of the goods received and those involved in the process.
