Chuave MP Wera Mori said allegations levelled against him of misappropriating funds of K40,000 is misleading.
Mori said the K40, 000 was rendered by his district administration to support a fraud investigation that involved missing public funds of over K2million by the Chuave District Administration prior the 2012 general elections.
In 2014, a senior police officer accused Mori for bribing the fraud investigator with the K40,000, when he took over the case.
That senior officer in 2015 then obtained a search warrant to search the district treasury which resulted in the destruction of property including harassment of district officers.
The senior officer was also accused of stealing documents relating to the fraud investigation.
“I am trying to fight corruption here but the suspects implicated in this massive fraud investigation are using this particular policeman to sabotage or derail this very important investigation,” Mori said.
Meanwhile Mori’s lawyer, John Napu, said the entire process of claiming a member of parliament for misappropriation was not followed. He said there are acts under the Public Financial Management Act, and the Audit Act that determines the prosecution process and in Mori’s case those acts were breached.
MP Mori has appealed to the Police Commissioner to take notice of the matter and allow proper investigations to be carried out.
