Of the sh. 8 billion unaccounted for by the Office of the President, and which is subject to audit queries, sh. 2 billion was transferred on MARCH 14, only two days before the filing of the Presidential Petition at the Supreme Court.
Raila Odinga filed his petition on MARCH 16.
Here is even the most queer thing. March 14 2013 was a Thursday.
On Monday, March 11, General Karangi, NSIS chief Michael Gichangi, Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo, Head of Public Service Francis Kimemia and Provincial Administration PS Mutea Iringo all went to ‘brief’ President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta. On the same day, several African ambassadors stationed in Nairobi continued to ‘pour’, literally, their president’s congratulatory messages. Museveni had already called in from Uganda!
On Tuesday, March 12, after days of demanding documents from IEBC to expediate its filing of the petition which Odinga had indicated the same day IEBC declared Uhuru President-elect (March 9), CORD filed a petition seeking orders to compel the electoral commission and mobile operator Safaricom to release crucial documents required to file a presidential petition. MARCH 12, the two newly elected leaders were at State House, meeting old Mwai.
Head of the Raila Odinga Secretariat Eliud Owalo filed the petition at the Milimani Law Courts.
On Wednesday, MARCH 13, several ambassadors, mostly from AU and Arab countries, sent in their home countries’ congratulatory messages. On the same day, CORD Principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Hon. Moses Wetangula addressed members of the Senate and National Assembly and governors elected under Cord at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi.
The three protested what they called ‘intimidation of the public. It was the height of ‘peace’ politics by KEPSA, media, Atwoli’s COTU, churches etc. It was longest nightmare for ‘we who lost the 2013 elections’. By the way, I sold my TV on this very week and unlikely to buy another any time soon. I’m still protesting. But I digress:
At KICC, Odinga, Musyoka and Wetangula took issue with how their competitors were being treated by all and sundry. In the eyes of the public, Uhuru and Ruto were being forced down our throats, the media, Africa, China, Russia etc were faling over themselves. The West still kept their distance, but their ‘choices and consequences’ message was now fast fading. It would be a matter of time.
At KICC, March 13 still, Odinga protested:
â€œIt is utterly surprising to see how public servants and top security chiefs went to pay homage to a President-elect and not the serving Prime Minister or Vice-President,â€ Mr Odinga protested.
â€œDuring my five years as President Kibakiâ€™s deputy, I have never seen security teams briefing the President in the presence of the media. This was intimidation,â€ Mr Musyoka protested.
On Thursday, MARCH 14, kabooom! Your Ksh. 2 billion was was wired to ‘Police Commissioner’ account.
The Ksh. 2 billion was transferred through account number 0-101-000-6530101 through voucher number 272 under the account name ”Police Commissioner” which was closed in December 2012.
The post of “Police Commissioner”, or ”Commissioner of Police” had been scraped off two years ago.
Another significant date for ‘us who lost the 2013 elections’ was MARCH 19.
On this date, a total of Ksh 306 million was transferred to this phoney “Police Commissioner” account at separate times during the same day. Sh. 100, Sh 200, and sh. 6 million.
What is important is that it was on this same day that High Court ordered IEBC and Safaricom to release election data to CORD. Remember, CORD, through Mr Owalo, then head of CORD campaign secretariat, had demanded these documents on March 12.
During the year under review, the ministry transferred a total amount of Sh8.3 billion to Kenya Police Service through contra-entries on cash book and Ministry headquarters recurrent bank account amounting to Sh1.4 billion and Sh6.9 billion respectively.
â€œOn March 14, 2013 alone, Sh2 billion was transferred through account number 0-101-000-6530101 through voucher number 272 under the account name Police Commissioner which was closed in December 2012.â€
