Gov Mutua begs US, EU to release a list of corrupt and drug dealing Kenyans

Published

on

Apparently frustrated by lack of action by Kenyatta’s administration, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has now asked western countries to help Kenya fight corruption and drug trafficking.

Speaking on Tuesday during the unveiling of Mars Wrigley Confectioneries plant in Athi River, Dr Mutua challenged the US and the European Union to make public their databases on Kenyan drug barons, terrorists and corrupt government officials.

He asked the US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter, who was in attendance, to ask Washington to release what he termed as a “list of shame”.

“I want to challenge the American ambassador and your colleagues from the European Union and even other nations like Japan to take a stand on the issue of corruption (in Kenya),” said Dr Mutua.

DATABASE

He added: “You have a database of drug dealers and, I believe, terrorists from our region who are on your radar. I also believe there is a database of super corrupt people in this country. My request is, stop these very senior government officials from stealing from us.”

He further asked the West to ban corrupt individuals from investing in their countries or hiding their loot in their banks.

“Name and shame these people. You have the database of the corrupt people. Give us a list of shame and stop them from coming to your country. Punish them so that they don’t just send their children to study in your country and to live well whereas our children are left in suffering in poverty,” Dr Mutua said.

LOOTERS

He wondered why the West would allow the “known thieves” to hide looted money in their countries as Kenya goes through “a whole judicial system” to repatriate the money back.

“Why can’t you stop them from coming to your countries to hide or invest our money?” posed Dr Mutua.

And in an indirect reference to Deputy President William Ruto, the governor wondered why some people think the war on corruption targets them.

“There are some who say they are targeted whenever we talk about corruption. But why do you feel guilty unless you have a history of thievery?” he said.

DON’T TRUST ‘THIEVES’

Kenyans, he said, should not trust “thieves” to create jobs for the youth and grow the country’s economy.

The Sh7 billion Mars Wrigley Confectioneries plant in Athi River was officially opened by Trade Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya and Mr McCarter.

“This (the investment) is a testament of my government’s commitment to create an enabling environment for all investors, big or small, in Machakos County,” Governor Mutua said.

Mars Wrigley manufactures Big G and PK chewing gums.

“These are brands that we buy in supermarkets and in traffic and are now being produced right here in Machakos,” Dr Mutua said.

Dilapidated Kenyan embassy buildings around the world to get Sh700m facelift

Published

It will cost taxpayers Sh700 million to renovate diplomats’ homes and offices in Washington D.C, London and New York as their poor state force ambassadors to rent premises.

The Treasury, in budget documents before Members of Parliament for review, says it will spend Sh250 million to renovate the high commissioner’s residence in London, Sh250 million (Washington D.C properties) and Sh200 million for New York homes and office.

Foreign Affairs ministry has recently indicated a change of plan from lease of space to property purchase as rental costs for embassies and consulates shoot to billions of shillings annually.

Diplomats in London and New York have been forced to rent homes as residences built by taxpayers fall apart due to neglect, the Auditor-General revealed last year.

Edward Ouko’s audit paints the sorry state of affairs in the country’s foreign missions and singled out the Kenyan embassies in Washington D.C, New York and London—which are the most prestigious diplomatic missions. This has forced the diplomats to rent homes in some of the world’s pricey cities, pushing the missions’ leasing costs to above Sh2 billion.

“No proper justification has been given for leasing residential houses considering that the Government of Kenya has houses for the ambassadors in New York and London except for failure to maintain these properties in habitable conditions,” said Mr Ouko.

“An expenditure of Sh2.3 billion on lease of properties abroad could have been minimised if there was a clear policy on purchase or construction of government-owned properties for the missions.”

A recent parliamentary report said the building hosting the Kenyan Embassy in Washington D.C has greatly deteriorated. Compared to neighbouring structures, the property stands out as a neglected unit.
