In the process of enquiring more of what had happened he was told that one of the three shareholders who were left died in a mysterious death, the remaining were convinced by the accuser who are now in the custody to change the minutes, letters of resignation and the ownership of the company.

“The person who was behind that confessed that she was under instructions and named all the victims, one is in custody and all the information is with the police, ” Munialo explained.

Mr. Munialo is impressed by the way the DCI and the police have handled the matter, hopeful to get justice and recover their company after the court ruling.

Moreover, Munialo is stating that due to change of governance, the process is now moving very fast compared to the previous regime where things were being slowed down.

Now the company is running as usual with the new management who changed the ownership, the company supplies electricity in Bungoma and some parts of Kakamega county.

“The company as per now generates up to 5.2Megawatts per day, Kenya Power receives the power on a national grid and distributes it,” Munialo said.

The owners want those who are intruding in the matter to keep off as police and DCI continue with more investigation.
