Here is the story by John Ngirachu that infuriated Interior CS Joseph Nkassery causing him to order for arrest of journalist John Ngirachu. Raw corruption !
The Auditor General is questioning how a government ministry spent Sh3.8 billion in one day.
The expenditure, by the ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, is related to the purchase of
arms, insurance for the police, vehicles and repair of helicopters.
The money in question was paid to local and foreign firms and mostly through local banks such as Kenya Commercial and National Bank of Kenya.
The firms include include: Agusta Westlands (Sh683 million), ISPRA/ISRAEL Product Research Co. (Sh271.9 million),
Ecta (Sh31.2 million), Toyota Kenya Ltd (Sh56.1 million), D.T. Dobie (Sh59.4million), Israel Weapon Industries (Sh68.2 million and Sh26.7 million), Lom Praha Trade (Sh370.4 million), Jino Motors Co. Ltd (Sh86.6 million), Polytechnologies Inc.(Sh38.9 million and Sh164.1 million), Silver Shadow Advanced Security Systems (Sh17.2 million), China North Industries Corporation (Sh101.4 million), Pioneer Assurance (Sh1.6 billion) and Steyr Mannlicher (Deftech Ltd) (Sh245.6million).
The expenses were incurred in the 2014/2015 financial year and the Auditor-General appealed to the Principal secretary in the ministry to intervene and have the necessary documents provided for audit.
Curiously, all the payments were made on June 30, 2015
