A County Assembly clerk is on the radar of the anti-graft body, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) for illegally raising his salary from Kshs.300,000 to a massive Kshs.1.5 million.
The Clerk is suspected of working with the payroll manager and payroll accountant to illegally boost his monthly salary.
Further, the official who works in the western region county is also theft of public funds through a parallel County Assembly account in collusion with others.
Corruption has increasingly become common in the county governments with a number of officials going rogue. However, anti-corruption agencies are focused on stemming the vice and bringing the culprits to account.
