COTU wants NSSF scandal probed

06 January 2014, 12:35

Nairobi - The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) has called for an urgent probe of the alleged multi-billion tendering scandal at the National Social Security Fund (NSSF).

In a letter to the Acting Managing Trustee of NSSF, Richard Langat and copied to the Chair of Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission, Mumo Matemu, COTU demanded that the Tasia project be halted until a proper review of the investment committee of the board and /or the full board meets to discuss the matter and provide an informed decision based facts and good judgment.

“It has come to my attention that the board approved an enhanced budget for Tasia project through circulation. I have no recollection of being part of that approval neither was I invited through the purported circulation at a time when the board has no quorum as currently constituted,” stated COTU Secretary General, Francis Atwoli.

Atwoli blew the whistle on the Sh 5.053 billion scam where Langat and Board of Trustees allegedly approved a housing project in Nairobi’s Tasia Estate despite the lack of quorum owing to the retirement of three of its members.

Atwoli added that the board would lose money if the project proceeded as currently envisaged.

He said the plots had been sold to the public as unserviced plots and therefore the task of putting up sewerage systems and roads belonged to the owners of the houses not to the pension fund.
