Former Kasarani MP, Elizabeth Ongoro has surrendered herself to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) office.

Former Kasarani legislator Elizabeth Ongoro and her husband Ferdinand Masha Kenga were directed to appear before Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over a 48 million shilling Kasarani Girls’ High School that is nonexistent.

“The Commission conducted investigations and established that the school does not exist and that payments were made to different individuals and companies associated to the National Government Constituency Development Fund (CDF) patron and committee members,” read the EACC statement.

While addressing the media concerning her investigations, Mrs. Ongoro claimed that the hunt was a political witch hunt seeking to tarnish her political ambitions.

“This is a political battle and the battle is for me. This is a process of eliminating Elizabeth Ongoro from Nairobi politics,” she said.

While clarifying the alleged embezzlement, she insisted that the funds were directed to build Kariobangi Girls school.

“The funds that were meant for Kasarani Girls were transferred and we built Karaiobangi Girls within the same Constituency. Where is the problem?” Ongoro said.

EACC had ordered her to present herself after being given the go-ahead by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji to place her as well as her husband,  Ferdinand Masha Kenga, under investigation.

She will appear before court on Monday.
