BREAKING: CIA concludes Saudi Crown Prince MBS directly ordered Khashoggi’s assassination

Published

on

CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince M. Bin Salman ordered the assassination of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post reported late Friday.

“In reaching its conclusions, the CIA examined multiple sources of intelligence, including a phone call that the prince’s brother Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, had with Khashoggi, according to the people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the intelligence,” the Post said in a piece.

Khashoggi, a frequent contributor to The Washington Post, was killed Oct. 2 inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

After weeks of denying any involvement in the crime, Saudi Arabia later admitted that Khashoggi had been killed inside the consulate but claimed the Saudi royal family had no prior knowledge of any plot to murder the journalist.

His body has yet to be returned to his family amid reports that it was chemically dissolved.

Gakuyo moved Kshs 1.5B from Ekeza Sacco account to his personal account that only him and his wife could access-Auditors.

Published

on

David Kariuki Ngari alias Gakuyo is said to have moved the money from Ekeza Sacco to an account only he and his wife could access.

He reportedly transferred the money between 2015 and 2017, according to a report prepared by a team appointed by Commissioner for Cooperatives Mary Mungai last December to audit the sacco.

Standard.co.ke report that Philip Ulluma and Stephen Njoroge, who prepared the report, presented it to Ekeza Sacco members during a special general meeting at Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani on Thursday.

The report shows Gakuyo transferred Sh88 million in 2015, Sh850 million in 2016 and Sh625 million in 2017.Of the Sh1.5 billion, Sh507 million was loaned to some Ekeza Sacco members who wanted to own homes under Chosen Green City, a housing project in Kabati, Murang’a County.

The project was being undertaken by the sacco’s sister company, Gakuyo Real Estate.

“So we can say the money Gakuyo owes members is about Sh1 billion. This is the money he took illegally and without any approval of the members, and it is the money we want him to pay,” said Mr Njoroge.

He said part of the money Gakuyo transferred to his account illegally was used to pay lawyers to oversee purchase of land and houses by the sacco.

Wambui murder: Fresh twist as police release husband Joseph Kori

Published

on

Mr Joseph Kori, the husband of the late Mary Wambui, the woman murdered by a mistress in Kiambu three weeks ago, spent the night out of cell following his release on Thursday evening.

Police sources at Gigiri Police Station, who sought anonymity because they are not authorised to issue press statements on the case, on Friday told the Nation that Mr Kori walked to freedom at 9.05pm.

The police said Mr Kori was picked up by officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), interrogated for a few minutes outside the cell but was not returned to custody.

The officers later returned to the station and signed that they had released the suspect, the sources told the Nation.

The release was also confirmed by Mr Kori’s suspect, who said the suspect walked to freedom on Thursday afternoon.

According to sources, Mr Kori was set free after investigations by DCI homicide detectives failed to reveal that he played a part in the murder.

Wambui’s relatives told the Nation that they have been waiting for their son-in-law to be released so that he could bury his wife.

“After initial investigations showed that Kori was not in any way involved in the murder of his wife, we as a family decided to wait so that he can bury his wife at his home in Mweiga, Nyeri County,” said Ms Esther Kamangara, Wambui’s sister.

Cleaner gifted Sh26m in Samburu looting

In shocking details on how the Sh2b irregular tenders were awarded, EACC detectives publish list of staffers, who exclusively traded among themselves through 11 firms

According to People Daily Fresh details of shocking financial obscenities and fiscal carnage surrounding the embezzlement of Sh2 billion by Samburu county by officials have emerged.

In one astonishing deal, a cleaner was told to register a firm into whose account a whooping Sh26 million was promptly deposited as she joined a list of favoured allies, county officials and relatives with proximity to the centre of power who have been linked to the looting of Sh2 billion.

In the plunder that reads more like fiction and features top cats— Governor Moses Lenolkulal, senior county staffers and friends— a subordinate staffer in the department of Agriculture was asked to register a company into whose account the cash was poured.

A report from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) details how county staff, in an incestuous dealing engaged with the county government receiving a total of Sh673 million while another substantial share of Sh970 million paid to companies for services allegedly not rendered went to senior county employees as kickbacks.

The revelation comes a day after EACC detectives raided and searched the homes of Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal in both Samburu and Nairobi. He later recorded a statement with EACC detectives at Integrity Centre.

The governor yesterday pledged full cooperation with detectives but insisted the transactions were done above board and that documents would be provided to prove it. He, however, said in case any fiddling is proved, those fingered would have to carry their cross.
