Kamata kamata Friday is finally here and former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and former chief of staff George Wainaina together with other suspects are trending following their arrest by the EACC over illegal payment of ksh 68 million to a law firm.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji said he approved the arrest and prosecution of 17 officials over the payment to Wachira Mburu, Mwangi and Company.
“The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) initially submitted the duplicate inquiry file to this office on 11th December 2018 and upon perusal and consideration of the evidence therein, a number of gaps were identified that required to be covered by way of investigations before charges could be filed in court,” the DPP said in a statement.
Among those wanted include former Mayor John Ndirangu, former councilor Mutunga Mutungi, and a former accountant Hannah Muthoni Kariuki who is listed to have received Sh11 million from the loot.
The DPP said that the suspects will face five charges, among them money laundering, abuse of office and unlawful acquisition of public property.
Kenyans, however, have lamented over being exhausted by the repetitive trend of arresting big fish criminals, interrogating them, taking them to court and finally, they are released on bond or the charges get dropped.
With the common repeat of this cycle that leads to no justice, Kenyans have branded this cases silly game of EACC musical chairs
Others have even declared the trend as the Kenyan version of the game of thrones movie series.
From the famous controversial biggest sagas of Anglo-leasing, Eurobond, NYS, Samburu Governor, NLC former chair Mohamed Swazuri to Evans Kidero, Kenyans have no faith in justice over their maximum embezzled funds.
