Former Garsen MP Danson Mungatana was yesterday put to task by anti-graft detectives to explain his alleged role in the Sh51 million payment by Kilifi county government.
The money was paid to a company linked to him for delivery or provision of unexplained services. After five hours of grilling, Mungatana emerged from Integrity Centre and denied any involvement saying his name was dragged into the matter by rival politicians.
However, sources at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) said that they are keen to establish the money Mungatana received through electronic financial transactions from Lucy Wanjugu Kibogo, a director of Zohal Services.
“I am very happy to have had this chance to voluntarily appear and clear my name which is an unfortunate clear case of mudslinging.
My lawyers and I have decided to go to the bottom of the matter. I reiterate that somebody cannot use my name. Money was lost and you must bear the burden of guilt,” he said.
