Two of Uhuru's Cabinet Secretaries Likely to be in Hot Soup After What Has Been Revealed

President Uhuru Kenyatta with former CS Ukur Yattani.

Members of Parliament from coffee-growing regions have accused former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya and his Treasury counterpart Ukur Yatani of plotting to take over ownership of the new Kenya Planters Cooperative Union (KPCU).

The 77-member Parliamentary Coffee Caucus are demanding to know why the two former CS’s names appear in the institution’s company registration documents.

“The former Cabinet Secretaries Ukur Yatani and Peter Munya have taken over ownership of KPCU. The Registrar of Companies clearly indicates that the two are the owners with shares which is completely unacceptable,” Caucus chairperson Gathoni Wamuchomba and Githunguri MP said.

This comes as a major blow with the members of Parliament viewing to ensure that they get to the bottom of the matter in order to know how this new revelation came to be.

It is not yet clear what action the members of Parliament will take at a time when the government of His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto has been trying to unearth the rot of the previous regime.

At the same time, a former board member of the new KPCU however said the MPs' concerns are misplaced and has since told them to co their horses.

"During the reform process a transitory company was formed as KPCU house was put in order. In that company, as is the norm in parastatals, the Treasury CS had to be the main shareholder, and Agriculture CS a director. That's how accusations against Munya came about," said the board member.
