Oparanya case: Court to give directions on returning of seized Sh2m
Elsewhere, anti-corruption court chief magistrate Thomas Nzyoki will today give further directions in a case where former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya is seeking to have Sh2 million seized by EACC detectives from his home returned.
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission lawyers say the cash is part of items under probe as its source remains unknown.
However, Oparanya through lawyer Davis Osiemo says the cash was meant for school fees for her daughter and that there is no nexus between the money and the probe involving some Sh1.3 billion allegedly embezzled from the county coffers during his administration.
