William Ruto: Tops the List, being the most corrupt in Jubilee government

When Barack Obama visited Kenya, he hinted that his administration would take unspecified actions against top government officials involved in corruption and true to his word, last week, Ambassador Robert Godec announced that the US has slapped visa bans on Kenyans who have been implicated in corruption.

Godec did not release the list of the individuals banned as diplomatic rules and protocol demands that such people must first be informed formally in writing before their names can be made public but the list has leaked out and has been circulating though sources say the US embassy has already dispatched letters to the individuals.

We broke the visa ban as a lead story and two days later, America, Britain and European Union envoys were at Integrity Centre giving warnings.

According to our diplomatic sources, the name of William Ruto is at the top. The ban on Ruto is based on the ongoing ICC case. It is also said that Ruto has a number of active cases over his alleged involvement in corrupt deals.

Also in the list is Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba who was the scandal-plagued chairman of public accounts committee of the national assembly which was disbanded and reconstituted afresh with Suba MP John Mbadi succeeding him.

The Pac team was sent home after an investigation into claims that its members had been using their positions to enrich themselves through extortion and blackmail was proven.

Ababu’s deputy in Pac Cecily Mbarire of Runyenjes is also said to be in the list of those barred from setting foot on US soil. Other Pac members in the list are Ahmed Abass of Ijara, James Bett, Kesses and Omondi Anyanga, Nyatike.

Others in the list are former cabinet secretaries Charity Ngilu, Felix Koskei, Davies Chirchir, Michael Kamau and Kazungu Kambi. Others in the list are former registrar Gladys Shollei and the former geothermal development company CEO Silas Simiyu. Former secretary to the cabinet Francis Kimemia, former Defence PS Mutea Iringo and Peter Mangiti, as well as NYS director Nelson Githinji. Mangiti and Githinji were recently arrested and charged with corruption. Their case is ongoing.

Former director of Immigration Jane Waikenda’s name is also in the list of those banned from visiting the US.

Former chief of staff in Ruto’s office Marryane Keitany’s name has also appeared in the list. She was suspended after her name was mentioned in Uhuru’s list of shame after being accused of misappropriating Sh200 million from the Legislative and Intergovernmental Relations Office.

Former Nairobi city county secretary Lillian Ndegwa and former finance officer Jimmy Kiamba’s names are said to be in the list. They were also suspended after they were allegedly involved in corruption at City Hall. They have been charged with defrauding City Hall of millions of shillings in shady procurement deals.

Also in the list is former Transport PS Nduva Muli who is being investigated for irregularly selling property of Kenya Railway Corporation when he served as its managing director. He is also accused of influencing procurement at the KRC and other state corporations under his ministry.

The name of Caroli Omondi, former chief of staff in Office of the Prime Minister is also in the list. He had been implicated in the sale of a Sh400 million parcel of land belonging to Kenya Commercial Bank. KCB is said to have agreed to sell the land situated on Loita Street in Nairobi.

Machakos governor Alfred Mutua is among the governors who cannot set foot in the US. Former PS, Information and Communication Bitange Ndemo’s name has also featured prominently in the list.

Others in the list are former chief executive of Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission James Oswaggo who has been accused of irregularly awarding tenders during his tenure at IEBC for the procurement of electronic voter identification devices.
Others are Godana Doyo who is Isiolo governor, Alfred Keter, Nandi Hills MP, Sonia Birdi, nominated MP, Okoth Obado, Migori governor, Isaac Ruto, Bomet governor, Richard Lang’at, managing trustee of National Social Security Fund Peter Kebati, former MD Mumias Sugar Company, Rebecca Nabutola, former PS Tourism ministry and Paul Wasanga, former CEO, Kenya National Examinations Council.

Others are Evans Ngibuini, acting chief executive officer, Nairobi Water Conservation, Alex Kabuga, CEO Kentrade Agency, Charles Tonui, MD Kenya Pipeline, Ukur Yatani Marsabit governor, Lucy Mbugua, managing director KAA, Richard Onyonka, MP Kitutu Chache, Peter Munya Meru governor, Zablon Mabeya ex-lands commissioner and George Aladwa, former Nairobi mayor.

Also in the list are MPs in the Agriculture, Livestock and Co-operatives committee. Early this year, the committee members were involved in a bribery scam.

At one time, drama unfolded at the committee sitting when some members accused their colleagues of receiving a Sh4 million bribe to doctor investigations report before tabling it in the house for debate.

The committee’s chair, Mohammed Noor who is Mandera North MP was particularly accused of having been compromised to influence the outcome of the report after receiving the Sh4 million through his Equity Bank account from unidentified depositor. The committee members are Adan Mohammed Nooru, chairperson, Kareke Mbiuki vice chairperson, Kabando Wa Kabando, Raphael Letimalo, Mary Wambui, Francis Waititu, Peter Gitau, Maison Leshoomo, Anthony Kimani, Alfred Keter, Justice Kemei, Philip Rotino, Korei Ole Lemein, Silas Tiren and Benjamin Washiali.

    How a Kenyan engineered Tanzania’s big loan scandal

    A Kenyan insurance executive has been named as one of the people who pocketed part of the $6 million bribe that Stanbic Bank — which operates in Kenya as CfC Stanbic Bank — paid to wheeler-dealers to help win a lucrative fundraising deal from the Tanzanian government.

    Peter Nyabuti, the managing director at Astra Insurance Brokers in Tanzania, is listed as a co-signatory in documents that were used to withdraw the kickbacks that Standard Bank plc paid in March 2013.

    Standard Bank plc — now renamed ICBC Standard Bank plc — owns a 60 per cent stake in CfC Stanbic and was also a lead arranger in Kenya’s debut $2.75 billion Eurobond floated last year and listed on the Irish bourse.

    Documents filed in a London court show that Mr Nyabuti teamed up with then Tanzania’s taxman Harry Kitilya and former Capital Markets and Securities Authority chief Fratern Mboya (deceased) to form a company that demanded a one per cent fee to help Standard Bank plc — which trades as Stanbic — act as transaction advisers for the sovereign debt.

    Mr Kitilya, who was EGMA’s chairman, also served as commissioner-general of the Tanzania Revenue Authority between 2003 and 2013.
    The trio is accused of forming Enterprise Growth Markets Advisors (EGMA) and causing Stanbic to inflate the commission charged to 2.4 per cent of the deal’s value from the initial 1.4 per cent fee.

    The fee inflation was to cater for “facilitation and arrangement charges,” according to a forensic investigation by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO).

    Signed by Mboya and Nyabuti

    “Almost all of the EGMA $6 million was withdrawn in cash between 18th and 27th March 2013. Each of the four cheques was signed by Mr Mboya and Mr Nyabuti,” reads documents filed at Southwark Crown Court, London.

    Mr Nyabuti and his now deceased accomplice reportedly pulled out the loot in four cheque to cash transactions totalling $5.2 million, SFO sleuths told Judge Brian Leveson who presided over the case.

    “On the 27th March 2013 EGMA requested transfer of the remaining proceeds and closure of the collection account.”

    Mr Nyabuti declined to comment on this story. He is a shrewd businessman and has been reported in local dailies attending fundraising events in his home area Kisii County.

    It is not clear whether Mr Nyabuti is involved in Kenya’s insurance industry either as director or owner of an insurance firm, broker or agent. The Insurance Regulatory Authority was yet to respond to our queries on this matter by the time of going to press.
    The involvement of Mr Nyabuti in the Standard Bank bribery scam adds to the list of Kenyans entangled in scandals abroad

    The list of foreign cases where Kenyans are entangled in corruption includes the $183 million Tegeta Escrow Account scandal in Tanzania and a $1.3 million bribery scandal involving the former president of the United Nations General Assembly, John Ashe.

    Tanzania in February 2013 raised $600 million from the international capital markets, with Stanbic Bank earning $14.4 million or 2.4 per cent of deal size in fees – and wiring EGMA its share of the funds equivalent to $6 million or one per cent of deal value.

    “We are extremely pleased to have closed such a prestigious deal as this,” Stanbic announced after the closure of the offer which was oversubscribed fourfold.

    Kenya paid out a total of $947,127.03 (Sh82.4 million) in commissions to the lead arrangers of the now controversial Eurobond — including JP Morgan, Barclays, Standard Bank, and Qatar National Bank.

    UK bribery act

    “Our involvement in this transaction demonstrates Standard Bank’s ability to facilitate successfully landmark deals of this nature,” said the bank’s dealmaker John Ngumi in September last year. Mr Ngumi left the bank in July this year.

    The corruption cases against Tanzanians and Kenyan were filed under the UK’s Bribery Act (2010) which prohibits use of inducements to retain or win business deals.

    “Promising and/or giving EGMA Ltd 1 per cent of the monies raised or to be raised by Standard Bank plc and Standard Bank Tanzania for the Government of Tanzania, where EGMA was not providing any or any reasonable consideration for this payment was illegal,” reads the charge sheet.

    ICBC Standard Bank Plc last week agreed to pay the SFO nearly $33 million (Sh330 million) in fines and penalties to settle the damning bribery case under a mechanism technically referred to as deferred prosecution agreement.

    The settlement deal with the UK anti-graft agency includes a financial penalty of $16.8 million, $7.04 million in compensation and interest to the Tanzanian government, seizure of $8.4 million for illegally making a profit, and £330,000 in legal costs to the SFO.

    The SFO said the corrupt dealings were arranged by Bashir Awale, then chief executive of Stanbic Tanzania, and Shose Sinare, then the unit’s head of corporate and investment banking.

    Mr Awale was Stanbic Tanzania boss for seven years and was fired on August 19, 2013 for failing to co-operate in investigations into the role of EGMA in the sovereign fundraising deal.

    Ms Sinare, a beauty queen, won the Miss Tanzania title in 1996.

    According to court documents, Ms Sinare, who resigned from Stanbic Tanzania on June 3, 2013, is the one who authorised the bribery payments on March 15, 2013 to an account held by EGMA.

    Tanzania’s $600 million debt instrument took the form of an unlisted and unrated seven-year floating rate instrument, the proceeds of which were to be used for infrastructure projects.

    Harbinder Singh Sethi, a Tanzanian-born Kenyan businessman, was in December last year named by Tanzania’s Public Accounts Committee as the face behind the irregular withdrawal of $183 million from Tegeta escrow account, a thermal power producer.

    Court documents tabled in New York show an unnamed Kenyan UN diplomat meeting an agent of former UNGA boss Ashe to help real estate developers land big development contracts in Nairobi.

    Kenya’s widespread graft is seen as a risk to the economy.
    President Uhuru Kenyatta on November 23, 2015 declared corruption a national security threat “with immediate effect” in his address from State House.

  • A note to My President

    By Josphat Maina

    December 9, 2015
    ……………………………

    Mr President good afternoon.

    I promised not to talk about Eurobond, I have no clue what it’s all about. Neither are my social media friends kind enough to educate me on it.

    Let’s talk about your reign as President of the great Republic of Kenya. Sir, you have failed.

    I have been thinking over and over about Raila Odinga. I had concluded he was dead politically, but I was wrong. You have resuscitated him back to life. Sir, you did it yourself.

    A quick look at 2017, Raila will not require his party manifesto. No, what for? He will require Jubilee’s 2013 manifesto, just that.

    You promised laptops for school kids. They still remember, yet we’re 3 years late.

    You promised, mechanised agricultural interventions to change the sorry state of our hungry nation. Galana is a case of planned failure. Whoever did the planning planned to fail you Mr President.

    I recall vividly the mention of moodern Stadia in several counties across the country to improve our sporting culture and events. I’m yet to hear when this will begin.

    Image
    On matters health, absolutely nothing has been going on. Cancer has become a serious killer but no interventions at all. No one cares as long as a relative is not a victim. Even the much publicised cancer equipments were just for PR. Nothing happened beyond the statehouse display of the state of the art machines.

    I know many will blame the constitution for the underperforming President. I choose not to. It’s all about goodwill. Ask Magufuli how he does it. I’m yet to hear him single out a clause in Tanzania’s Constitution. He’s riding on Public goodwill, and everyone is ready for change.

    Mr. President, I have always been jubilated. Even now I steel am, but I’m dying of stress. Will you craft another manifesto above the one of failed promises? Just how will you convince us you deserve another term?

    The sad reality is that Raila Constituency is intact. On the other hand, the President’s has changed from strong supporters to NEUTRAL voters. They can fall either way.

    Mr. President, you have travelled far and wide. You have committed so much on behalf of our country. But the question every lay person will ask is, hiw come we can’t feel the change? Thika Super Highway brought all difference. It was felt far and wide. Standard Gauge Railway is expected to be the same. Both are Kibaki projects.

    So when are we to feel the benefits of Jubilee Government Mr. President?
