Well, for a while now Jacob Juma has been fearless in naming and shaming powerful forces involved in grand corruption. He is the man behind the EUROBOND expoze, he also gave details of NYS scandal and also has been closely following bribery allegations in the Judiciary.
So, somebody in Statehouse is not happy with Jacob Juma and thus a plot to silence him.
Statehouse Blogger Dennis Itumbi was dispatched with some information, very old information pegged on court papers in which Billionaire Juma was cleared of any wrong doing. The aim was to taint Juma so that the hawkers and many other sorry Jubilee supporters are locked into rallying behind Uhuru even when clearly the regime has made life worse than during Kibaki Raila coalition government.
“When Dennis Itumbi writes about Jacob Juma on a matter that was determined by the courts a long time ago, everyone can see the quality of the people that sorround the presidency……. you don’t need to be told that these people are destined to fail….. Dennis should give us facts on how GDC, NYS, youth fund monies were lost not trying to paint Jacob as a corrupt person…. #teamclueless!” Joseph Githu noted
Here is how Juma confronted Itumbi with the real facts>>>
By Jacob Juma
Fellow Kenyans, my attention has been drawn to Dennis Itumbi’s post where he has falsely accused me of “defrauding” Ksh500 million from NCPB. His allegations are malicious, unfounded, uncouth, uncivilized, illegal, far-fetched, and aimed at assassinating my character. At no time did I ever defraud NCPB.
Erad a registered company entered into a legally binding contract with NCPB. NCPB breached the contract and Erad sued for damages. The High court of Kenya awarded Erad compensation after a tedious litigation. Many appeals and applications have been heard over this matter in both High Court and Court of Appeal and Erad Ltd has emerged victorious. Is that defrauding? Itumbi has been send by Jubilee’s Uhuru and Ruto to malign my name. It is wrong.
A common decency has been thrown out of the window by political thuggeries and vindictiveness. Read the attached documents including paragraph 20 of Hon. Kirwa, then minister for Agriculture’s Notice in the advert. Finally, I ceased being Erad’s director and shareholder in December, 2005 before they sued NCPB in 2007. Whatever transpires in Erad firm is not my concern. Truth will remain the same however many times the lies are peddled.
