The detectives pounced at dawn, and spent hours rummaging through documents that could help in their investigations into alleged misappropriation of Sh2 billion in Migori County.

EACC has been investigating how the county chief allegedly abused his position to steal public funds through companies registered by his relatives.

The governor is out on bail after he was arrested for the murder of university student Sharon Otieno.
