Further KES 3.5B Anglo Leasing claim made against Kenya

22 May 2014, 18:33

Nairobi - A further KES 3.5 Billion might have to be paid to Anglo Leasing firms by Kenya, a senior treasury official has revealed.

Treasury PS Kamau Thige admitted Thursday that the Anglo Leasing firms First Mercantile and Universal Satspace had made a further claim over an unfulfilled intelligence contract.

Thige was speaking during a grilling session by the parliamentary committee on Accounts over the Anglo Leasing saga.

He did not reveal any more details over the matter, saying that the rest would be revealed at a later time.

The revelation comes just a day after he revealed that the government had already parted with KES 1.4 Billion in payments to the two firms.

The new revelation is likely to cause further concern in the public domain considering that the government had already said it would not make any further payments.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, in blaming the Attorney General's office over the first payment said the government would do all that is in its power to get the money back.
