The trial of former Kenya Power senior managers, among them former managing director Ben Chumo and his successor Dr Ken Tarus, may not proceed this morning after the court heard that a crucial document the prosecution wishes to rely on has gone missing.
Senior Assistant DPP Alexander Muteti told chief magistrate Felix Kombo that the original ERC report prepared on the procurement of faulty transformers was missing.
He said the document is crucial to the prosecution’s case and even though they have photocopies, they need the originals to go ahead with the trial.
The prosecutor asked for an adjournment so that they could investigate where the documents are and how they went missing.
Following the admission in court, the Director of Public Noordin Haji ordered for “investigations into circumstances under which documents meant for prosecution of the KPLC corruption cases went missing.
Mr Haji said the documents were under custody of Kenya Power.
