The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has seized assets worth Ksh.27 million belonging to a former senior police officer Chief Inspector Gabriel Mbiti Mulei, who served as a Traffic Base Commander at Malindi Police Station.
Mulei, earning a net salary of Ksh.20,000 monthly, is believed to have fraudulently accumulated the assets including Ksh.8,153,959 in cash, six parcels of land and four motor vehicles valued to a tune of Ksh.19, 420,000 fromJune 18, 2008 to February 11, 2011.
EACC received credible information that the Defendant herein (Mulei) had engaged in corruption and that he had acquired properties and wealth which was not commensurate to his known source of income. The anti-graft agency commenced investigations into the allegations of corruption and possession of the unexplained wealth by Mulei.
The commission moved to seize Mulei’s assets after the High Court on June 30, 2022 ruled in favour of the anti-graft body declaring the property as unexplained assets.
The officer is also required to pay Kshs. 10,536,199 to the government as part of the unexplained assets he accumulated for three years.
According to documents presented in court, Mulei only declared assets during the period in question amounted to Ksh.2,382,240 amounted
The Court ordered that the above assets be forfeited to the state.
