Ministry downplays Kisumu Oil Jetty scam

The Ministry of Petroleum and Mining now says no money was lost in the construction of the Kisumu Oil Jetty for which senior Kenya Pipeline Company officials are facing charges.

According to the CS John Munyes & PS Andrew Kamau, the project was a Presidential Directive with budget approved by the Treasury and the KPC Board. The project was well executed and delivered within the stipulated timeline and budget with no variation.

This is a major contradiction with the charges against 6 KPC officials including outgoing Managing Director Joe Sang who were arraigned in court on Monday for charges including overspend in budget and engaging in a project without prior planning.

This begs the question of the intentions of charging public servants for a job well executed.

The officers were released on a cash bail of Sh. 2 million
