“The DCI was actually at our offices on Thursday investigating the matter. They are supposed to be interviewing those people who had to step aside because … we don’t want to run the risk of documents getting lost,” she told the National Assembly Energy Committee on Thursday.Those interdicted include the finance manager, management accountant, stock accountant, depot controller, distribution manager, territory manager and commercial manager.Ms Mwangi said findings by auditors (KPMG) indicated that 900,000 litres were lost.“Some of the key people who were involved in that loss when they realised what they had done they resigned,” she said.She added that Nock was waiting for the final audit report to quantify exactly how much product was lost and its value.This is the second case the DCI is investigating at Nock in a span of six months.It is also looking into fraudulent contractors that supplied 67,251 faulty gas cylinders under the Mwananchi gas project.
