Atwoli to meet MPs over NSSF scandal

13 January 2014, 12:01

Nairobi - Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, will this week meet the Parliamentary Committee on Labor over the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) scandal.

The pension fund has been in the centre of a KES 5 billion shillings alleged corruption scandal which Atwoli brought to limelight.

He sits on the Board of Trustees of the NSSF.

“I will be meeting the parliamentary committee on labor this week in order to speak out on the NSSF scandal,” Atwoli said.

Atwoli has stated that it was inappropriate for the board to resort to approval of projects through circulation of emails, a sentiment that had been shared by another member of the board, Jane Mugo the chairperson of Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE).

“The email circulation cannot constitute a board approval of expenditure of KES 5 Billion of NSSF funds,” said Mugo.

The Acting Managing Director for NSSF, Richard Langat, and the Cabinet Secretary for Labor, Kazungu Kambi, have however denied the existence of a scandal at NSSF saying that the approval of the project by circulation was not a new thing at NSSF.

It is yet to be known whether the other members of the board of trustees would appear before the labor committee as well.

The project whose budget was enhanced was to put up roads and sewerage systems of the pension body’s Tassia Estate which is to be sold.
