If you visit Narok, that sleepy town on the fringes of civilization, you’ll be amazed by some new properties dorning the area.
One thing that has become too obvious is that most of these installations belong to the people working in government. For in Kenya, working in government pays more than a US citizen inventing the next Facebook.
It is painfull that youths go without jobs and are told that ‘it is hard to find employment’, yet those appointed to public office loot with wanton abandon like there’s no future. They don’t even try to create job, all they want is to be village small gods who dish out handouts.
The looter of Narok
The Chief Finance Officer (CFO) of Narok County Government Mr. Denis Parsaloi Ole Letiet was appointed to office in 2016 and in those few years earning less that Ksh400k per month, the man now owns half of Narok.
It is alleged that Mr. Parsaloi owns flats and buildings carefully spread in two counties of Narok and Nairobi.
The Bachelor of Commerce Degree holder from Technical University of Kenya has learnt the art of creative accounting that has seen him embezzled millions from the county coffers.
A source working at the county government of Kenya Today that Mr. Parsaloi’s fortunes have risen tenfold since he came into office in 2016.
Apart from building, the maasai moran is said to be the owner of 10 high-end fleet of cars.
‘CFO ako na magari kumi, kama mheshimiwa. In fact hizi manyumba kama Esipil na Lathes huwa hapendi zijulikane, ameweka kwa majina ya watu wengine’, said the source on condition of anonymity.
It is also alleged that the CFO has firms that do works for the county, that are owned through proxies. This is conflict of interest.
Apart from the two buildings (Esipil and Lathes) in Narok that the source stated are owned by Mr. Parsaloi, other that Kenya Today has received that are allegedly owned by him are: Chillspot Hotel (Narok), and Coffee Shop (Narok).
As Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) goes after people driving top of the range vehicles but have salaries that don’t match those riches, one of the people they should close in on is Narok County CFO Denis Parsaloi Ole Letiet.
Detectives from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Authority (EACC) and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) should launch investigations as pertaians to these allegations.
