Kole district CAO, Esau Ekachelan has been arrested over mismanagement of Parish Development Model (PDM) funds meant for Saccos in Okwerodot and Alito Sub Counties.

This comes after Kole south MP Peter Ocen Akalo coordinated with State House Anti-Corruption to investigate PDM implementation in Kole. 

Peter Ocen Akalo MP said all civil servants engaged in misuse of public funds will be arrested and followed with the law.

Both the DPC and LCV chairman of Kole were not available to confirm the arrest of the district CAO as they did not answer our calls.
