According to a Kenyan government audit report, during the investigation by the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission (led by John Githongo) into Anglo Leasing, some of the credit supplier companies involved voluntarily refunded the full amounts relating to their contracts without prompting or explanation: Leyland Export Ltd. returned $910,000 (from the Export Lease Purchase project); Anglo Leasing & Finance Ltd. returned $4,744,444 (from the Forensic Science Laboraties project) and EUR 956,700 (from the Immigration ISDCS project); Infotalent Ltd. returned EUR 5,287,164 (from the Kenyan Police Law and Order (E Cops) project). The $4.7 million from Anglo Leasing was remitted by the Schroder and Co Bank AG of Zurich on behalf of its client, but Mr. Githongo commented that no one in the government knew who actually had sent the money.
