CARTELS at the National Irrigation Board are rumoured to be a threatened lot. It’s said they are working round the clock with the current man agement to approve payments for suspicious projects. It’s said two of them were overheard saying that they should ensure the management approves payments of up to Sh100 million before they go for Christmas. The men are rumoured to be worried about the coming Cabinet appointments by President Uhuru Kenyatta. The appointments will affect CSs, PSs, and parastatal heads. They want the NIB to pay the cash so that even if changes occur, they will be able to share the money between them and the management.

A senior engineer at the Kenya Ports Authority has come on the anti-corruption radar after it emerged that he has been working in cahoots with some unscrupulous contractors based in Mombasa to inflate the cost of the construction of the planned Container Terminal Two by a whopping Sh1.5 billion. Sources at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission have intimated that they are closely following the matter to ensure the taxpayer does not lose suc h a huge amount, especially at a time the economy is almost stagnant.

A Principal Secretary is giving staff and suppliers at a ministry sleepless nights. Our moles say that the PS has been seeking kickbacks from suppliers while bragging that there is nothing that can be done to him by the bosses. The official claims to have a powerful godfather within Jubilee circles. As a result, the PS has made numerous unilateral changes as a way of eliminating those who are seeking to block the unethical operations in the ministry. Recently, the PS requested the Exchequer for some Sh248 million to pay to 12 suppliers said to be associated with her in unclear procurement procedures but will not allow anyone to question the move. This is despite the EACC investigating the PS for audit queries arising from the ministry’s spending over the last four years.

A first-term MP from Bungoma county is the talk of the town. The man is reporte d to be evading a female friend from whom he took a loan after winning the seat. It’s said the MP was broke after the gruelling election and asked the woman, who is a business lady, for a loan of Sh300, 000. However, the MP is reported to have refused to pay back the money and has been evading the lady. Last week, he issued bouncing cheques to the lady, who reported the matter to the police. It’s said the young MP has instructed his bodyguard not to allow the lady near him.
