Senior Counsel (SC) Ahmednasir has reacted to a report on the last minute expenditure by President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration.
In a report shared in one of the local newspapers, the State acquired 60% of Telkom Kenya at Kshs 6.09 billion. According to the report, the deal was one of the string of expenditures by the government without approval of the Parliament few weeks to President William Ruto's inauguration.
Reacting to the report, Ahmednasir has termed the deal as "another scam pulled by Treasury and State House in the last week of the Uhuru administration".
The SC claimed that the beneficiaries of Helios, the company which sold Telkom Kenya to the State, are well known and determination of the amount for the 60% acquisition of Telkom must have been altered.
"Only fools don't know who the beneficial owners of the 60% held by Helios are...and how did the State House and Treasury determine the value of the 60%...President William Ruto must cut off heads!" He said.
The report comes a few weeks after another report disclosed that Uhuru spent Kshs 4 million daily during his last year in office. The report indicated that these money was largely spent on occasional campaign meetings at the State House.
