Busia Senator Okiya Omatatah has linked Energy CS Davis Chirchir and his Transport counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen to oil tycoon Ann Njeri Njoroge, whom he says fell out with the two cabinet secretaries in their business deal.
In a statement on Saturday, Senator Omtatah dared Chirchr and Murkomen to come clean over the Ksh17 billion scandal involving oil tycoon Ann Njeri Njoroge.
”I challenge CS Chirchir and CS Murkomen to stop fooling the nation and come clean on their relationship with Alice Njeri, whom I reasonably believe is their front in the heist, whom they have fallen out with,” Omtatah’s statement reads in part.
He is confident that the CSs may have fallen out with the businesswoman, something that led to the confiscation of the oil consignment, contrary to remarks made by CS Chrirchir, who claimed that it belonged to a local company.
The first-time Senator and activist added that the money was irregularly withdrawn from the Ministry of Energy accounts, having been deposited from the Treasury three times since October 2022.
