Kenyans are thieves - Nigerians kando.

Just like we have fundi wa mbao, viatu, etc. That's the same way we have mwizi wa mafuta, mtihani, pesa wa matender, etc

I think the prevalence of social media and the internet means we hear more of this cases, as compared to the traditional media who hot to choose what to tell people and many stories never got to see the light of day.

Murchr I think I now understand this new system that has been adopted. I can see Trump has been teaching jubilee very well.

Become sooooo baaaaad. Create such HORRIFFIC stories. Then lie lie and lie again until the lie becomes the truth.

The goal is to make everyone lose so much hope in you, that the only hope they have is your lies. The lies would have turned out to be the only truth around.

It's a powerful strategy.

During the 'famine & drought' briefing this week with DPORK leading the park, i realized that is the stratagem they have adopted. Though DPORK is a master lair and likes throwing figures around and of course our journalists cannot fact check him on the spot or even as the interview progresses.

You should hear how they have twisted the Galana Kulalu project and its success story. Jambazi kabsaa!!!

I think its foolish to expect much from govt when it comes to drought and famine. Nanok has told us today that the slice of 10Bn that he gets from the national cake is very little. What can be done to mitigate the drought? GMO may be?

At last something positive

Former senior official to lose Sh41 million assets to State



SubStandard wrote:
The Court of Appeal's decision against former National Water Conservation and Pipeline Corporation Finance Manager Stanley Mombo Amuti (pictured) sets a precedent that all "unexplained assets" should be handed over to the Government.

According to Court of Appeal Judges Phillip Waki, Gatembu Kairu and Otieno Odek, although he had never been charged or convicted of corruption or abuse of office, he had an obligation to explain how he acquired every coin.

“We are satisfied that the appellant (Amuti) did not offer satisfactory explanation as to the source of admitted sum of Sh 15.5 million from the alleged Sudanese national; the source of Sh1 million allegedly for community electricity project, the source of Sh 10.9 million and the source of Sh 9.5 million for sale of properties,” the court ruled.

According to the State, Amuti splashed Sh41 million in 10 months to purchase property but could not explain the source of his money.

He is alleged to have once banked Sh1.5 million in cash in one day and visited the ATM 15 times to deposit the amount in installments of Sh100,000, attracting the attention of detectives.

The anti-graft body told the Court of Appeal that besides the questionable cash deposits, Amuti had bought several properties, including a high-end car – a Toyota Land Cruiser – and land within 10 months. He was found with about Sh4 million in cash when EACC raided his home.

Through lawyer Philip Kagucia, EACC argued that it was impossible for Amuti to spend such an amount of money between September 1, 2007 and June 26, 2008 without showing the source of the income.

The attention of investigators was drawn by Amuti’s lifestyle and the deposits he made to his accounts in Barclays Bank and the National Westminster Bank, PLC London.

The following day, on May 13, he deposited Sh2 million.
The EACC, in its argument, said it was not wrong for Amuti to have so much money but failing to explain how he got it raised a red flag.

In what could turn out to be another mega-scandal in the Jubilee government, the State paid out Sh67.9 billion as pension to people who were not entitled to receive the cash, and others whose identities could not be verified.

The Treasury, without explanation, paid Sh1.6 billion to 962 people before their exit dates from public service even as thousands of workers who retired years earlier languished at home waiting for the processing of their retirement benefits.

Other workers, whose terms of employment were not permanent and pensionable, pocketed Sh492 million without any valid reasons being offered.

In another case, 349 people were irregularly enrolled in the pension system and paid Sh556 million.

The largest chunk of the money - Sh44 billion - was given to claimants with irregular identities or who lacked personal identification numbers.

Another Sh21 billion was given to claimants with shared bank accounts while Sh152 million was wired to people with shared identity card numbers.

The damning revelations are contained in a report by Auditor General Edward Ouko, which was tabled in the National Assembly on Tuesday evening.

Ouko said these irregularities are to blame for many beneficiaries waiting for long to get paid and genuine claimants languishing in poverty after missing out on the payments.

The audit conducted last year covers the period between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 financial years.

Performance audit

“The Sh67.9 billion was paid to 114,215 claimants, which is an average of Sh594,267 per claimant,” reads the performance audit on the administration of public service pension scheme.

The money in question is more than three times that allocated to free primary school education in the 2019/2020 financial year. It can also build three Thika superhighways.

Pensions are paid by employers on a monthly basis to employees who are not in employment upon attaining the mandatory retirement age, or due to other extraneous causes such as injury and illness. The money can also be paid to a deceased staff’s dependents.

In the financial years under audit, the Government spent Sh199 billion on payment of pensions and gratuities, with the auditor general noting that the expenditure increased at an average rate of 25 per cent annually during this period.

When the auditor asked why people with shared identities had been paid, Treasury bureaucrats said the recipients could have been beneficiaries or pensioners receiving several categories of pension.

Ouko said he discovered that in some cases, the bank accounts did not follow conventional rules, “which made it impossible to determine if these were genuine accounts”.

In one case, for example, an account ‘O’ was shared by 26,121 people and no satisfactory explanation was offered for this anomaly. In total, 870 account numbers were shared by 29,387 pensioners.

Curiously, some IDs had less than three or more than nine characters, or contained characters such as ‘?’ and ‘&’ instead of numerals.

Some tax PINs, Ouko discovered, lacked the required nine digits in between the alphabets.

“No valid explanation was provided as to why the system would allow processing of payments without these important documents. A system which allows such entries is prone to manipulation which may lead to funds being channelled to wrong individuals,” the auditor said.

But it is the case of casual workers and people still in employment receiving pensions that most poignantly points to the rot at the Pensions Department, which is entrusted with securing the future of workers.

Contained anomalies

“The effect of the anomalies contained in the PMIS (Pensions Management Information System) is irregular payment that has compromised operations and has resulted in many beneficiaries waiting for too long to get paid yet the provisions of funding for payment for pensions during the period under review has been at 97 per cent. This has denied the authentic claimants their pay thus negatively affecting their livelihoods,” Ouko stated in his report.

The audit was a follow up to a January 2016 report by the Commission on Administrative Justice (Ombudsman), which noted systemic failures in payment of pensions, gratuities and other benefits at the Pensions Department.

Worryingly, taxpayers could lose another Sh86.8 billion if the loopholes at the Pensions Department are not addressed, Ouko said.

“The system still contains 146,027 claimants who at the time of the audit had not been paid. If they are each to be paid the same average of Sh594,267, a further amount of at least Sh86.8 billion could be at risk if the system errors are not corrected,” states the report.

I personally know a former senior colleague who died while chasing pension. If AG Ouko can pinpoint and even count the irregular accounts where money was paid, what is stopping DCI from arresting these people and making them refund the money?What is stopping the DCI from arresting the government official who paid out this money irregularly?
