Uhuru's Inner Circle - Kenyans.co.ke"/>
Days after the Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) was declared a special government project, critics have started smelling a rat that President Uhuru Kenyatta's government is up to no good.
Led by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah, the critics believe that the move is meant at destroying the struggling company further and that the secret owners of the listed company should be named as soon as possible.
"How does a listed public company become a state project? This is a perfect example of state capture" a furious Ichungwah lamented.
"Before you make KPLC a state project you must disclose to Kenyans who are private equity holders in KPLC. Also tell us who are the owners of all those independent power producers that have been extorting money from KPLC and from Kenyans," the vocal MP added.
He went ahead and slammed President Uhuru for destroying the economy using state capture.
The government had last week made moves to stop the mess at the struggling energy giant when it ordered detectives to unearth the rot in one of the most strategic parastatals.
This was after claims emerged that some workers have been colluding with large electricity consumers to either lower or evade paying bills, with brazen power theft making half of the company's losses.
