Shocking findings

A multi-agency anti-corruption team led by DPP Noordin Haji has unearthed a shocking pattern among four CSs under investigation for graft.

The team that took a trip to Italy to trail CMC di Rivera, one of the companies in the Sh38.5 billion Arror scandal was shocked to discover that the alleged Italian company is owned by one of the CSs on the DPP's radar.

"It is disturbing that the CSs are linked to the companies under probe in multi-billion-shilling projects that have stalled.

"The investigations are at a very advanced stage . What we were surprised about was the level of rot. We award tenders to international companies only to discover they belong to locals," one of the investigators leaked to reporters.

CMC di Rivera is still hired as a contractor for government projects worth Sh91 billion.

CS hired foreigners to be directors in his proxy company

Another of the CSs implicated in the scandals was found to have hired foreigners to act as directors in the company to hide the fact that his company was transacting business with the government.

"This is denying Kenyans opportunities to get government tenders, especially when the companies in question are international, with local roots," the insider conveyed.

In early February, details emerged that the DCI had taken statements from 4 cabinet secretaries in connection with corruption investigations.

The four CSs under investigations are yet to be officially named as speculation indicates that it could be the four who were questioned: Water CS Simon Chelugui, Treasury CS Henry Rotich, Tourism CS Najib Balala and Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri.
