A company associated with former Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is among those that benefited from procurement irregularities at the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA).
Aszure Commercial Services Limited was paid Sh350 million under the KEMSA Emergency Procurement for Covid-19.
Halakhe Waqo who is the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EACC was severally mentioned by bloggers as a very corrupt guy who doesn’t hesitate to take kickbacks to go slow on investigations.
In 2018, Mr Waqo was accused of receiving a Sh300 million bribe from 2015/2016 National Youth Service (NYS) scandal suspects.
The bribe was allegedly received to cover the names of several governors and a Cabinet Secretary listed in the graft.
According to Adan Guracha, the then lead detective in the scandal, the Chairperson of the Universities Fund Board used the proceeds to build a six-storey building in Isiolo town.
In a sworn affidavit, Guracha also revealed how Mr Waqo ordered him to discontinue investigations into the fraudulent compensation of the Lamu Coal-fired Power Generation project in 2017.
“When he tabled information linking Dido and Sons limited to the fraudulent pay of over Ksh100 million, Waqo intimidated him and directed him to handle other cases,” the affidavit read.
Speaker Justin Muturi
Kenyanbulletin.com’s research also netted Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi as a beneficiary of KEMSA illegal procurement money.
Thermosystems East Africa Limited, a company associated with Muturi was paid Sh6.3 million for unspecified supplies.
Regal Freighters received Sh270 million. It is associated with Deputy CEO of EACC.
Kenyans need to know their real enemies, because as lockdown and curfew were imposed, some people got very rich. As curfew and lockdown and cessation of movement were imposed, some politicians got very rich. As curfew and lockdown were imposed, and some Kenyans suffered death at the hands of police for not wearing masks, some politicians and their surrogates stole money meant to buy free sanitizers and masks.
It is just the start of the revelations and it is already clear to see that all these parastatals are surrounded by politicians who mercilessly loot and eat with their girlfriends. In other countries, rich people are those who have invented things and own industries which employ people especially the youth, but in Kenya it is the opposite. Politicians are the ones who are rich in Kenya because they easily loot from the public and go scot-free.
