Bharat Thakrar, the unassuming group CEO of ScanGroup is often referred to in glowing terms by the media in Kenya and much of sub-Saharan Africa. This is understandable; he heads Africa’s largest marketing and communication firm operating a multi-agency model across multiple disciplines in Sub-Saharan Africa, and through his companies, he provides media houses a substantial business in the form of advertisements from his blue chip clients.
However, the recently leaked KPMG forensic audit report on Safaricom Ltd has negatively exposed Thakra and lifted the lid on a ruthless tycoon who allegedly exploited Kenya’s corrupted politics and courts, a billionaire bully who has allegedly manipulated leading companies at the Nairobi Stock Exchange to get undeserved contracts and a conniving businessman who stopped at nothing to defeat competitors and partners alike.
Being a bosom buddy to the CEO of Safaricom has ensured Scanad and Thakrar received a constant flow of highly lucrative contracts that latest being a tender with a monthly retainer of Kshs 18,600,000. Bob Collymore awarded a one year contract that has since expired but KPMG noted that they are still operating after contract expiry with no tender. This is basis on which Scanad was paid a staggering Ksh1.2 billion by Safaricom.
With the escalating KPMG scandal, whose recommendations the Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore is secretly implementing, the Thakrar-Collymore occultic axis has has been dubbed the evil axis.
As Bob Colymore ‘loads’the country using Safaricom, the PR spin doctoring team is allegedly led by Bharat Thakrar and his former employee Nick Wachira who is now a hired mercenary at Oxygen Media.
Bharat an alleged well known occultic businessman, is a man of strange moral and spiritual standings. As part of its policy, Scanad is known to coerce individuals and clients into surrendering their rights by evoking dark forces.
