Moses Kuria faces corruption allegations over CDF tenders


Troubles facing Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria deepened yesterday after a petitioner moved to the High court seeking to remove the legislator from office on grounds of alleged corruption and nepotism in the awarding of Constituency Development Funds (CDF) tenders.

The petitioner, Mr Elijah Gicharu Kimani from Kiambu County, says in his sworn affidavit that in the year 2016, a self-audit of Gatundu South CDF unearthed nepotism and conflict of interest in awarding tenders amounting to Sh170,878,413.

“We discovered that most of the contracts had been awarded to companies owned by close relatives of the respondent,” says Mr Kimani in his affidavit.
