Uhuru Allies in Tight Rope as MPs Revisit Multi-billion Alleged Scandal That Took Place Before Polls

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's allies might find themselves in trouble after Members of Parliament revisited alleged irregular transactions that were made a few days before last year's general elections to secure the giant Telkom Kenya company.

According to the latest reports, the MPs from the Finance and National Planning committee want to establish if the law was followed by the Treasury when it disbursed funds amounting to ksh 6 billion to buy Telkom Kenya from Helios company.

The committee which is chaired by Molo MP Kuria Kimani wants to establish why the Treasury paid the Ksh 6 billion in a hurry to fasten the exit of Helios company and if the law was followed when making transactions.

Last month, the National Assembly majority leader Hon Kimani Ichungwah alleged that the money that was paid days before the elections ended up in some individuals' pockets. He also threatened to expose them.

He also accused those who are complaining of the high cost of living of taking part in siphoning the money from the treasury days before and after elections. Ichungwah alleged that part of the ksh 6 billion that was paid to acquire Telkom Kenya was stashed abroad in offshore accounts.
