The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) says it has received the go ahead from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to charge Uasin Gishu senator Jackson Mandago over the Finland scholarship saga.

According to the anti-graft body’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Twalib Mbarak, the commission has acquired evidence it will use against the former governor.

“We have recommended him to be charged and have received the go-ahead from DPP because we found something about him,” he said.

EACC has been investigating the Sh1.1 billion scholarship programme founded by the Uasin Gishu County government during Mandago’s era.

The funds were collected from parents to facilitate a scholarship programme for their children to Finland and Canada.

The Uasin Gishu Overseas Education Trust Fund account is said to have been opened in May 2021 with three officials named as signatories.

The account is said to have received a total of Sh837,855,889 between May 2021 and December 2022 from over 200 students who travelled to Finland to pursue various courses in various institutions.
