After failing to present the magistrate before a court of law on 24th, the Association drafted an enquiry letter of whereabouts of the Magistrate to EACC which is yet to get a reply .
“On suspecting that the letter might take long to get a reply, KMJA officials decided to approach the EACC offices in person to make a one on one enquiry but the graft body denied having arrested our colleague,” added the SG.
Kuto added that the EACC said that they were only aware of the pending investigations against the said magistrate.
“They also advised us to report the matter to the police.” Kuto said.
