Uhuru must be 'prosecuted for Anglo Leasing'

07 March 2015, 17:40 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD Co-Principal Moses Wetangula says that President Uhuru Kenyatta should be investigated on whether he played a part in the Anglo Leasing scandal.

The CORD principal said that President Kenyatta cannot be excused having allegedly paid Ksh 1.7 billion to Anglo-Leasing last year as president.

He says that the president must be probed for allowing payment of the money despite knowing too well that the Anglo Leasing deals were corrupt.

FORD Kenya boss Wetangula wants President Kenyatta to explain the circumstances that led to the payment.

His statement comes after 13 Anglo Leasing suspects were charged with conspiracy to defraud the government of KES 10 billion.

Former Finance Ministers David Mwiraria and Kisii Senator Chris Obure are alleged to have used their powers while in office to sanction contracts and subsequent payments, some at inflated costs, to ghost firms or to companies, which never delivered the services they were paid for.

The charges were a culmination of over 10 years of investigations since the Anglo Leasing scandal came to public light by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC.

The arraignment comes after Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Keriako Tobiko called for the arrest of 13 people behind the Anglo Leasing scandal last week.

The Anglo Leasing scandal took place in December 2003 after the Department of Immigration tried to secure a loan to modernize the issuance of secure passports and purchase security equipment to be used at Kenya’s borders, a process that was abused.
