Nairobi - A storm is brewing in Parliament over controversial payment of KES 490 million MP Cyrus jirongo in an out-of-court settlement.
The Standard reports that another spanner in the works is that Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s office has written to Labour Ministry, headed by John Munyes, instructing that the Fund’s Trustee Alex Kazongo be reinstated.
The PM’s Permanent Secretary Mohammed Isahakia, who gave the instructions, also wants allegations of recent improper payments to contractors totaling KES1.4 billion for old contracts, some for which no work was carried out or projects were left incomplete, investigated.
