Garissa county is facing a crisis following the loss of a huge Sh150m to cartels operating within the county executive.
According to records, the county executive awarded contracts to private companies owned by Ali Korane relatives.
Among the reported companies include Maalim Building and Construction Company that won lucrative tenders worth Sh70 million. Some projects awarded Maalim Company associated with Rioba in-laws, and payments made happen to be ficticious.
The tenders were spread across the sub counties of Balambala, Fafi and Garissa Township.
It is alleged that some of the funds being investigated disappeared under the previous regime of Nathif Jama.
