The planned meeting between a section of CORD leaders and the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission over Karen land saga may not take place today.
Credible sources privy to the goings on in the opposition coalition has told this writer the leaders will meet this morning to make a decision after a series of ‘ugly developments and reports’ over the Karen scam.
Yesterday, it emerged that the coalition received reports of ownership documents being falsified at the lands ministry to hide the names of top Jubilee alliance leaders and government bureaucrats enmeshed in the scam.
CORD had named cabinet secretary for lands Charity Ngilu as among those who benefited irregularly over the allocations. Others whose names have featured include the Deputy President William Ruto, Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero, Senator Mike Sonko, Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
People Daily has this morning carried a story of top government officials rushing to dispose of the parcels of the same land they acquired to avoid being mentioned. The same is said to be the case by the politicians mentioned who are changing ownership to trusted allies but nondescript proxies.
Senators Johnstone Muthama, James Orengo, Boni Khalwale, Elizabeth Ongoro and Suna East MP Junet Mohammed are among the CORD leaders who were expected to record statements this morning.
