Gov’t official earning Ksh.100K per month found with Ksh.36 million in four bank accounts



The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is probing allegations of misappropriation and embezzlement of public funds against a deputy director of the National Treasury.

Preliminary investigations by the EACC indicate that over the last five years, Charles Muia Mutiso, Deputy Director External Resources at The National Treasury, has amassed unexplained amounts of money inconsistent with his known income.

According to EACC, Mr. Muia, who joined the Treasury in 2014, has a total of Ksh.36,786,068.73 in four bank accounts yet he was earning a net monthly pay of Ksh.118,691.17 since April 1, 2015 to April 30, 2020. During this period, records indicate that he earned a cumulative net income of Ksh.7,148,991.25.

“EACC applied to court for warrants to investigate accounts held in various banks by Charles Mutiso. On the basis of court orders, the Commission obtained bank statements in respect of the said bank accounts. Analysis of the flow of funds in his bank accounts revealed that he received numerous unexplained inward remittances, EFTs and cash deposits outside his salary from the National Treasury,” says EACC.

“Investigations further established a pattern of frequent large cash deposits made mostly through the ATM or the drop box. For instance, in June 2015, he made five cash deposits of Ksh.400,000 each into his account at Absa Group account amounting to Ksh.2 million over just few days.”

According to EACC, Mr. Muia has two ABSA Group Ltd accounts with Ksh.23,452,775.65 and Ksh.5,843,390.35 respectively.

He also holds a Co-operative Bank account with Ksh.1,932,167.53 and KCB account with Ksh.5,557,735.20.

All the four accounts have since been frozen as investigations continue.

Investigations have also established that Mr. Muia owns several parcels of land which include: LR No Nairobi/Block 140/775, LR No 209/12108, LR No 209/16764, Donyo Sabuk/Kiboko Block 1/908 and Matungulu Sengani/3503.

He is a very dangerous man! Sonko’s daughter accuses senator of attempting to kill her



Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

US raises alarm over Covid-19 cases surge in Tanzania



The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
