Dazzled EACC investigators halt proceedings, and opt for seizure after mind-blowing figures





Total Views : 262

One of the most painful and bitter realities that Kenyans might have to live with is that they may probably never find out just how much money has been pilfered since the moment the Jubilee administration took over the reigns of power in March 2013.

However, scrutiny of the case of Benson Muteti Musila who was just a regional manager of the Kenya Rural Roads Authority gives an idea of the money that the country may have lost over the last eight years. A breakdown of the astronomical figures Muteti is alleged to have been raking in each day, leaves one to estimate how much, more powerful and senior people in the government were making.

Muteti was making only 390, 000 a month, which is a tidy sum, but when drawn against the amounts he was raking in each day, the EACC investigators were confounded. The suspect was found to have been making an average of 293, 000 each 24 hours. In each two-day cycle, he would make money that almost doubled his huge salary.

The EACC said multiple deposits had been made into Mr Musila’s 21 KCB bank accounts and an account each at Cooperative Bank, NBK and Absa Bank.

The accounts held Sh567.63 million.

Mr Musila, however, maintained that the banks held cash meant to pay staff and finance general office administration.

The anti-graft agency has applied for the seizure and forfeiture of the assets by Benson Muteti Musila, saying they are part of unexplained wealth worth Sh952.3 million stashed in 22 bank accounts, 27 properties, shares in multiple companies and schools linked to kickbacks from contractors to the State.

The properties targeted from Mr Musila and his wife include seven apartments, eight commercial and residential plots, two schools β€” Mumbe Junior Academy and Mumbe Girls High School β€” as well as shares worth Sh2.24 million, four vehicles and a hardware worth Sh41 million.

The apartments are scattered in Nairobi’s Kariobangi, Dandora, Mathare North and Imara Daima together with parcels of land β€” both agricultural and empty plots –including in high-end Karen earmarked for development. The apartments and land are worth Sh241.6 million.
