David Murathe Linked to Yet Another Multi-billion Tender Brokerage Deal in Ukambani
Barely six months after a parliamentary inquiry exonerated Jubilee vice chair David Murathe from the billion-shilling Kemsa scandal where he was largely mentioned, another intricate expose alleging how Murathe wields greater power in government to a point of influencing awardment of tenders has surfaced.
In the expose that was triggered by Kitui governor charity Ngilu over the wheeler-dealership surrounding the multi-billion Thwake dam project in Ukambani, UDA political strategist Dennis Itumbi has alleged that Murathe was the chief broker of the project which was handed over to a Chinese company, Gezouba company Limited for execution.
Murathe's involvement in influencing the lucrative tender allegedly saw him among others pocket close to 6% cut from the entire deal, which translates to about 2.88 billion.
According to Itumbi, a cabinet secretary who was by then in charge of the involved ministry had to be transferred after being sidelined from the lucrative deal.
