Senior officials of the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) were on Tuesday arrested in an ongoing probe over the fake fertilizer saga.

Among those arrested included NCPB Managing Director Joseph Muna Kimote, John Kiplangat Ngetich (Corporate Secretary), and John Mbaya Matiri (General Marketing Manager).

The three top honchos of the State agency are set to be arraigned in court on Thursday.

A prominent businessman who was previously questioned on the fake fertilizer scam is also wanted by police.
