VIDEO: Just in case you Missed the exposé “Kenyan Covid Millionaires”

Published

on

As ordinary Kenyans struggle to make ends meet in this Coronavirus environment, others are busy lining their pockets with millions if not billions of shillings meant to ease the suffering of their compatriots, this according to people interviewed by NTV’s Dennis Okari in his latest investigative piece, The Covid Millionaires, which aired on Sunday night (watch below):

For starters, earlier this month,  Daily Nation, a Kenyan daily reported that some business people chattered planes to China to physically fly in Covid-19 medical supplies.

Others waited for the goods — personal protective gear, ventilators and other medical items — to land in Nairobi, then snapped them up in bulk and waited.

Then there were those who waylaid donations at the airport and diverted them to private warehouses, waiting for the procurement whistle to be blown.

At the time, billions of shillings were flowing into government accounts as worried Kenyans absorbed the shock of the novel coronavirus landing in the country via London.

First, Kenya received Sh78.3 billion from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to address the pandemic.

Then the World Bank wired Sh108 billion to the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), as both budgetary support and extra resources to help fight the deadly viral infection. Now, Dennis Okari has exposed the culprits as well as many others. Watch:

While announcing the resumption of flights, KQ’s Group CEO Allan Kilavuka said the connectivity is crucial to both economies.

“We are pleased to resume our services to Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar following this announcement by the Tanzanian Government. Tanzania is critical to both Kenya and East Africa’s economic growth and we look forward to our continued collaboration,” he said.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has revealed how he got to own a new Mercedes Benz while still in campus.

Sakaa revealed that after joining Univeristy of Nairobi he got into student politics which afforded him privileges such as nice rooms and being able to set up businesses around the school.

Luckily, while he was the chairman of SONU, he landed a role in former President Mwai Kibaki’s administration.

“The first time I met Kibaki was in 2006 after the referendum. He asked to hear my dreams about the country and I started working with him.

“We established the Vijana na Kibaki initiative and started mobilising in universities and that is how I bought my first car a green Mercedes Benz,” he explained.

In the run up to the 2007 election, he took a lead role in rallying support for the presidential secretariat and during the 2008 post-election crisis.

Sakaja’s resolve to see a solution found resulted in him addressing President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet at the age of 22.

At the age of 24, Sakaja had written a section of the 2010 constitution.

When he came up with the formula for the delimitation of constituencies.

Sakaja had been consulted by Nancy Gitau, who was State House’s political advisor.

She asked him for his views on the said topic and he responded that he would think about it and advice.

When the team that was working on the draft laws retreated to Naivasha, he represented PNU whereas ODM had brought a very senior professor.

Kibaki and the rest of the team were so impressed by the 24-year-old that they chose Sakaja’s proposal over the professor’s.

Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) singer Zuhura Kopa popularly known as Zuchu has denied claims that she is in a relationship with Diamond Platnumz.

Speaking during an interview on Wasafi FM, Zuchu described the rumours as baseless adding that if there was a relationship with Diamond, there would have been proof.

“Kwanza ukiangalia ndani ya WCB hakuwezi kuwa na maneno kama hayo kwa sababu hakuna kielelezo na hio story haina muendelezo.

“Tunajua watu walivyo wafuataliaji, trust me kama ningekuwa na any inappropriate relationship na boss, kipo kitu kingeonesha Ushahidi lakini watu wamebase kwenye vielelezo vya promotion ambayo kama ukingalia wasanii wote duniani wa kike wanaofanya vizuri management zao ziliwekeza kweli kweli,”said Zuchu.

She added that instead of people appreciating the WCB boss for investing in a young talents, they have focused on negative things about him.

Zuchu further said that Diamond Platnumz has never disrespected her in any way, and that he is more of a big brother to her.

“Kwa hivyo mi naona badala ya kumpongeza mtu kama boss kwa kuwekeza kwa msichana mdogo kama mimi watu wamnataka kutumia ile nafasi kuweka negativity which is not right. Boss wangu hajawai kunivunjia heshima. I’m saying this with all my heart. He’s a brother and a brother indeed. He has never been inappropriate, hajawahi,” added Zuchu.
