Muhoho Kenyatta company Protech Investment ltd imported POISONOUS Contraband Sugar

MUHOHO KENYATTA,

Muhoho Kenyatta, brother to President Uhuru Kenyatta has been linked to the poisonous sugar scandal

There was a moment of drama on Tuesday following heated exchange after a Member of Parliament (MP) linked President Uhuru Kenyatta’s younger brother, Muhoho Kenyatta, to the contraband sugar scandal.

Aldai MP Cornelius Serem claimed Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i had failed to appear before the joint Senate and National Assembly Committee probing the contraband sugar scandal, due to fear of being put to task over Muhoho Kenyatta’s role in the scam.

After going through these documents we were given yesterday, I have a reason why Matiang’i is not here. A company by the name Protech Investment Limited is owned by one of the strongest people in this country and that could be why Matiang’i is not here because he is afraid,” said Serem.

This document originated from the Agriculture Ministry. The company number 112 in this list is owned by Muhoho Kenyatta.”

Serem’s bombshell prompted interjections from a section of committee members who claimed the Aldai MP was out of order for delving into the issue of importers which is scheduled for discussion later in the week.

There is systematic way in which we have agreed we will conduct these proceedings. I don’t want us to cast aspersions as to the people who have imported sugar. Don’t go that direction,” said Kanini Kega, one of the co-chairs of the joint Trade and Agriculture committee.

We are discussing Matiang’i today not the importers. The importers will have a full day on Thursday and Friday.”

In a rejoinder Serem said: “Chairman I am asking that we amend the list of those who are to appear as importers and also include directors of these companies.”

I was concerned because the name of that company (Protech Investment Limited) was not there,” said Serem.

Here is WHY we Need To EXHUME Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and BURY Him at Kamiti Maximum Prison Grounds in UNMARKED GRAVE: How Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Members of his Extended Family Embarked on a LAND GRABBING SPREE after Independence

MZEE JOMO KENYATTA

Kenya’s first President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta

Documents in my possession show how Kenyatta and members of his extended family embarked on a land grabbing spree after independence.

The documents which cover 1974 to 1977 include letters from the then Lands Minister Mr Angaine, Chief Land Valuer Mr Dermott Kydd, British Ministry of Overseas Development and the victims’ testimonies.

They also show Kenyatta’s love for free things with one letter claiming he ordered dairy cows from a farm in Molo to be driven to his Gatundu farm.

Of interest was the Sukari ranch which was described as ” 30,000 acres extending from Nairobi City boundaries in the general direction of Ruiru, Kahawa and Gatundu.”

Until early 1974 this land was owned by French Scophin Company. However after the owners left, it was earmarked for the future expansion of Nairobi.

A cabinet paper was therefore prepared that the government should buy this land to prevent future speculation. But how this land ended up being Kenyatta’s nobody knew.

The manner in which Kenyatta acquired the land became a subject of some rude remarks by some MPs while Kenyatta was in the chamber during the swearing in of parliament in 1974.

In the first week of December 1974, James Njenga the Director of Settlement who was the man tasked with buying land for the settlement of Africans using British funds , telephoned Mr Kydd the Chief Valuer and informed him that he should give a site unseen valuation because Kenyatta wanted to sell part of the land to Settlement .

It was very suspicious that Kenyatta wanted to sell the land he had only owned for three months. Secondly he wanted to sell the land to the Settlement which involved the land owners being paid using British funds meant for the settlement of landless Africans.

Mr Kydd refused Njenga’s request and insisted that he had to see the farm first before offering any valuation. Kydd also querried the feasibility of effecting much settlement on the barren land and poor soil of the ranch. Kenyatta’s intent was to retain the productive part and sell the barren part to the British for the settlement of Africans.

Njenga who was annoyed by the response banged the phone, and Kydd went to report the incident to the Director of Lands Mr O’Loughlin. No sooner had Kydd arrived in Loughlin’s office than Mr Angaine the Minister for Lands telephoned Mr Loughlin demanding that he should order Kydd to give a valuation so that Settlement headed by Njenga could buy Kenyatta’s farm immediately using funds set aside for the settlement of Africans.

Both O’Laughlin and Kydd refused, and it was left that Angaine would speak to Kenyatta about it. The only valuation Kydd could give Angaine was that of 1972 when the farm was owned by Scophin Company which was around sic “K £ 250,000”. Angaine, however, rejected this saying he couldn’t tell Kenyatta that his land was that cheap.

Following the conversation Angaine went to see Kenyatta and subsequently both Kydd and Loughlin were summoned to State House Nairobi on Dec 18, 1974, at 1pm.

Kenyatta refused to shake Kydd’s hand instead barked insults at him asking him why he had given his farm a low value . Kenyatta then turned into a bully twice ordering the two to their cars and back.

After the bullying session Kenyatta ordered Kydd to go to his farm and generate a price for every acre. He demanded that this price had to be arranged in a manner that enabled him to dispose off 20,000 acres of barren/unproductive land to Settlement.

Kydd arrived at the ranch at around 2.30 and found Angaine already waiting for him. Angaine apologised at the way things had happened at State House and said that he had been ordered by Kenyatta to confirm that he (Kydd) had arrived at the farm.

Kydd spent the evening until dark in the ranch and typed his report late in the night.

In Kydd’s on estimate Kenyatta was to make a kill of Kshs 4,000,000 from the 20,000 acres of barren land he was to dispose off. Selling the land acquired in a questionable manner and demanding to be paid using funds set aside for the settlement of the landless Africans was indeed corruption.

But this was not the only case of corruption involving the Kenyatta’s. In January 1977 Ari Grammaticas who owned Governor’s camp and 500 acres of tea plantation in Thika had his farm forcefully taken over by Mama Ngina Kenyatta. Although the farm was valued at Ksh 1000,000 Mama Ngina only paid. Kshs 200,000.

However, Grammaticas who decided to move Switzerland after the take over vowed not to take it lying down. She sued Mama Ngina through a firm owned by Dingle Foot. The involvement of Dingle Foot who was a prominent lawyer forced Mama Ngina to back down, and through her agents she offered to pay Grammaticas more money.

Others mentioned in the forceful and illegal acquisition of land were Kenyatta’s brother James Muigai, his son Peter Kenyatta, grandson Michael Njoroge, his Nephews who included Dr Njoroge Mungai, Beth mugo and many others.

Other huge tracts of land acquired by Kenyatta and his family are also mentioned and details given.

Danish Institute for International Studies Report links NA Majority leader Aden Duale, Former Garissa Governor Nathif Jama Adam and Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to Sugar smuggling to Kenya from Somalia

NATHIF DUALE KIDERO

Former Garissa Governor Nathif Jama, National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero – the sugar SMUGGLING BARONS

Sugar smuggling to Kenya from Somalia is a dangerous and highly political business. A New report by Danish Institute for international studies (DIIS) has disclosed.  In the report they have linked the sugar smuggling to politicians among them former Garissa governor Nathif Jama,  Majority leader in National Assembly Aden Duale and former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero.

The trade across the Somali–Kenya border is particularly controversial because the border has been officially closed for a decade, making the trade illegal

PUBLIC SECRETS: BORDERS, CAMPS, AND GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION

According to informants the involvement of local government in the sugar business has increased in the period following the 2013 elections.
Former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero, the Garissa governor Nathif Jama Adam, and the Garissa- born majority speaker of parliament Aden Duale are rumoured to be implicated in the sugar trade.
These rumours reach all the way to Nairobi where they can be voiced more freely than in the north. The power of the people implicated by the rumours is more distant in Nairobi, whereas in the northern parts of Kenya the secrecy associated with the rumours points to the importance and power of those involved.

The Dadaab refugee camp close to Garissa in northern Kenya is one of the major hubs for the sugar trade. The more than 20 years-old refugee camp is among the worlds’ largest and it offers a convenient market with hundred of thousands of clients. Dadaab refugee camp thus has become a place of transit for a large variety of people and transported goods. The camp is, in some respects, considered its own isolated entity and others it is intimately connected to the regional life and trade, which also affects and implicates the governance of the county.

Camp dwellers are always unwilling to talk about the sugar trade. In December 2014 a police officer was killed in what was publicly portrayed as another Al-Shabaab terror attack, given that it happened shortly after the Al-Shabaab-led massacres in Mandera in November 2014. However, the ‘truth’ that circulated in the camp placed the officer at the heart of the sugar trade and that he had allegedly acted against the advice of his sugar patron, an influential local politician.

Despite camp dwellers’ reluctance to be interviewed about the sugar trade, rumours travel in the camp and everybody knows about the sugar networks, but most refugees demonstrate the social skill of ‘ knowing what not to know’ While the violence and corruption involved in the trade make people afraid of talking, they rely on the trade to get sugar, as it is not part of the UN food rations distributed in the camp. Refugees in the camp also take on the odd job as loaders. Because the camp is never short of labour, the earnings from loading the sugar on and off the trucks do not reflect the fluctuating prices of the sugar. Dadaab refugee camp is an ‘economic engine’ for the northern parts of Garissa county. Furthermore, the political and business communities in Garissa county are dominated by people with close ties to the Jubaland administration in southern Somalia.

Economic adviser to the Governor of Garissa admitted the challenges Kenya faces in terms of border control and how that has influenced the work of the new governor and his team. He felt no need to hide that the formally closed border in reality didn’t appear that closed. The advisor argued that mobility patterns increase the demand for supplies from alternative channels (like the cross-border trade), particularly when supplies from Kenya and international aid agencies are insufficient and in periods when local farmers can’t deliver enough for the camp. His point was not to endorse the illegal cross-border trade but, rather, to highlight that this problem goes beyond corruption in the border police or the KRA.

The county commissioners and administrators know about the existence of sugar smuggling. Smuggling appears to be a public secret and some of the commissioners link its connections to local politicians and business people. However, the commissioners are not interested in or willing to reveal the identity of particular politicians involved in the sugar trade. They only speak in generalised terms and only of those already implicated by public rumours. The power of these politicians is implied in the stories surrounding the police officer killed in Dadaab in December 2014 but also in the subtle ways in which politicians’ involvement in the illegal sugar trade is denied or simply not mentioned. Nevertheless, one former district commissioner who had served under the former provincial government structure did give a particularly vivid account of his service in the county.

It was his first assignment and he was displeased with the remote placement, but from colleagues he soon learned that the northern territories are considered a very attractive albeit risky destination. It was described to him as a place from where ‘if you survive, you can return wealthy’. A month into his placement he was approached by a local businessman who paid a courtesy visit to introduce himself to the newly appointed commissioner.

The businessman was straightforward and told the commissioner about the cross-border trade he was involved in. He told the commissioner that he expected him to do what his predecessors had done, to cooperate. If he was unwilling to cooperate, the businessman pointed out that the commissioner had three options; either to seek transfer of placement by himself, to have the businessman take care of his transfer or to never to return to his family. Such blunt intimidation testifies to the power and connectedness of the people involved in the smuggling. It also demonstrates the systematic coercion involved in making outside state officials comply with the operations.
The former commissioner claimed not to have taken any bribes… but he managed to serve until the end of his term.

Another former commissioner who served in Wajir recounted that everybody within the administration knew about the smuggling and that many actually tried to do something about it. He defended the KRA and the police at the border posts who are often accused of corruption and argued that there is a community aspect to the problem. While on the one hand the public servants are appointed by the state and hence serve the state, on the other hand, they also serve the local community where they are placed. They have to stay on good terms with the locals to build good working relations. In his account, corruption is only part of the explanation; local demands for goods and jobs related to the trade is another, and so too are the close relations, which often take the form of clan ties, across the border. Similar relationships between local communities and state officials as well as local communities’ relations to smuggling networks and traders have been described in the border areas of Congo–Uganda and between the Sudans.

Researchers argue that such community involvement must be understood as a mix of incentives comprising: loyalties to social networks, business strategies, survival economies, and alternative regulation, rather than as mere smuggling cooperation
In this light, the former commissioner’s account broadens the meaning of coercion and co-operation, as the pressure on government representatives is not limited to violence and threats to their lives. Instead relations between civil servants and communities manifest themselves in a variety of ways and they are equally fragile and unstable. If we add the influence of Al-Shabaab and the KDF to the mix, these counties are clearly not easy places in which to uphold and implement the central government’s laws and policies.

Government Spokesman Eric Kiraithe UNAPOLOGETICALLY tells Kenyans who are complaining of Racism, mistreatment and Neocolonialism by Chinese SGR Contractor to SHUT UP, stop being CRY BABIES and GET DOWN to work OR quit

Eric Kiraithe

Government Spokesperson Eric Kiraithe. He tells Kenyans employed by Chinese contractor at the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to “bear with the Chinese” despite workplace discrimination, racism, mistreatment and neocolonialism

In a scathing letter sent to Media Houses, Government Spokesman Eric Kiraithe responded to claims that Kenyans were being racially mistreated, discriminated and neo-colonized by their SGR masters.

Kiraithe told Kenyans employed by SGR to “bear with the Chinese” despite workplace discrimination and mistreatment because the Chinese were giving the Kenyans the “right mind set, a set of moral principles and workplace values to enable the rail to operate in perpetuity,” and that “operation of modern train calls for military standard discipline.”

Therefore according to Kiraithe or rather the Kenyan Government, discriminated Kenyans should STOP squealing around; SUSPEND their rights as workers and work hard to acquire Chinese uptight work ethics.

 

Below is Kiraithe’s letter;

Attention of  the government has brought to highly sensationalize negative media coverage of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) popularly known as Madaraka Express. Allegations include lack of a prudent financial management package, racism and inadequate measures to protect wildlife.

From the onset, we wish to assure the public that all the allegations will be judiciously investigated and action taken in the best interest of the citizens of Kenya.

However, we also wish to draw the attention of the public to a few facts, which the sensational reporting has ignored.

The first is the training, skills and responsibilities handover to the national staff.

We must all appreciate that the operations of a modern train infrastructural system like Madaraka Express in a consistently effective and efficient manner is a profession that calls for military standard discipline.

The ongoing orientation of staff therefore is not about transferring technical skills only. It is aimed at inculcating the right mindset, a set of moral principles and work place values that will build a foundation for the rail to operate effectively in perpetuity. Whereas the government is at hand to protect the individual rights and dignity of every Kenyan citizen, inward looking, “haki yetu centered personalities” have no place in this kind of profession either now or in future.

They are the first crop of Kenyans employed on this project and the culture they entrench will determine whether in less than ten year s, we shall depend on them to manage and operate this vital investment, which is critical in the economic development and modernization of Kenya. It will be very unfortunate if after the agreed period, we shall continue relying on expatriates.

It is therefore important that they shift their focus from short­ term diversions to the challenge at hand. Every organization will have challenges and these challenges get more complicated when we have a multi-racial, multinational setting because of the obvious clash of cultures. However, no organization overcomes its challenges through the mass media.

On the concerns on wildlife, the government is satisfied with the plans in progress so far to protect our national heritage. This aspect has been highly sensationalized complete with carcasses of dead animals. The facts are that we are losing many more wildlife on our roads.

Madaraka Express forms one of the most critical steps towards the achievement of Kenyan dream: a middle-income fast developing country providing a high standard of living for its citizens. The financial package in place has been drawn with the assistance of several professionals and it was the most practical under the circumstances. However, the government is monitoring and it will be reviewed as need arise to ensure that the Kenyan taxpayer continues to get the best value for money. Like any other Mega business, project of this nature take long periods to break even and even longer to be profitable.

Monica Kanari: the Fashion Designer Who Received And Returned Sh15 Million NYS Cash Was Anne Waiguru’s Roommate At Egerton & a bridesmaid during her wedding to Lawyer Tony Waiguru Njuguna

In the past 2 weeks, numerous mega corruption scandals have been unearthed pitting Kenyans against President Uhuru Kenyatta due to his indifference towards tackling corruption scandals that have rocked his administration since 2013.

One of the mega corruption scandal exposed involved the National Youth Service [NYS] were reports indicate that the organization lost close to Ksh10 Billion to corrupt government officials in liaison with cartels and unscrupulous businessmen.

Over the weekend it emerged that a fashion designer Monica Kanari and owner of Occasions and Days Ltd received Sh15,306,689 on the morning of December 20, 2016 from NYS and she apparently returned the money. After this story broke out, Kanari was hailed as a true Kenyan patriot and received accolades from all walks of life.

However, a day after the story, reports emerged that Kanari was actually a close ally to former Devolution Secretary and current Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who was in 2015 implicated in looting of NYS together with Josephine Kabura amounting to sh1.9 Billion.

Further digging revealed that Kanari was actually Anne Waiguru’s roommate and close friend while at Egerton University. Moreover, it emerged that Kanari was actually one of Anne Waiguru’s bridesmaid during her wedding to Ex-husband Lawyer Tony Waiguru Njuguna.

EXPOSED: COFEK Boss Stephen Mutoro EMBROILED in Sh40 Billion KPLC Transformers TENDER WARS, got millions in KICK-BACKS!

Controversial Consumer Federation of Kenya (COFEK) Secretary General Stephen Mutoro is embroiled in a Sh40 Billion Shillings transformers tender deal at Kenya Power and he now wants the company’s CEO Dr. Ben Chumo to be sacked.

Mutoro who has made his fortunes through Court cases is opposed to the awarding of a multi-billion shilling transformers tender deal to the awarded bidders since he was holding brief for other bidders who lost the tender bid.

COFEK had on November 2nd, 2015 written to KPLC, board chairman Mr Kenneth Marende demanding for Chumo’s resignation over the matter. Mutoro is believed to have started wars with Mr. Chumo immediately after Kenya Power cancelled a tender deal with COFEK.

Mr. Mutoro used to pocket millions from the Kenya Power and COFEK deal which involved him mobilizing Kenya Power consumers across the country to meet the company’s management for sensitization workshops, but the extravagant deal was cancelled after the power supplier decided to contact its consumers directly.

Mr. Chumo joined Kenya Power in 1986 and was the Chief Manager in charge of Human Resources & Administration since 2003. He was appointed Managing Director and CEO of the Company in 2014 following the appointment of Eng. Joseph Njoroge to the position of Principal Secretary.
