MOE Official Diverts ksh 11.1M Free Education Funds Into His Personal Bank Account

An official from the Ministry of Education is on the spot after the Ethic and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) alleged that he diverted Sh11.1 million meant for free education to his personal bank account.

The revelation came out after an inquiry by the anti-graft agency following reports of misappropriation of public funds in the State Department of Early Learning and Basic Education.

EACC claims the said employee inserted the name of a non-existent secondary school named Mundeku Secondary school in Khwisero Sub-County, Kakamega county into the final list of the funds distribution schedule and used his personal account to channel the funds.

In their investigations, EACC established that the official prepared the funds distribution schedule which included the number of students in each school, the bank account details and the amount each school would receive based on the enrollment data.

“Investigations established that the said employee inserted the non-existent Mundeku Secondary School into the funds distribution schedule, and linked his Equity Bank account number as the Mundeku Secondary School’s bank account. He later received Shs 11,131,305.53 from the Ministry out of this arrangement,” reads the notice from EACC.
