The anti-corruption court on Tuesday heard that the police received several items from a company at the centre of a controversial Anglo Leasing project.

Levin Mwandi, formerly director of logistics in the police force, confirmed receiving equipment from Sound Day Corporation, but could not tell whether the kits were under Anglo Leasing E-Cops project or previous security deals.

Sound Day Corporation had been supplying police equipment since 1993, and at the time the project was cancelled in 2004, the firm had already supplied most of the equipment but had not been paid about $8.5 million (Sh875 million).

Mr Mwandi said that he had sought more information from the Office of the President regarding the controversial contract and was only supplied with a list of items to expect, and not the contract itself showing the total items to be supplied.
