Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi on Wednesday stated that he made money at a young age, distancing himself from claims that he acquired money through the NHIF. The legislator said that at 23 he owned a Lexus and three years later he bought his first Range Rover.
“When I was 23 years old, I was driving a Lexus. When I was 26 years old, I bought my first range rover. This is my 4th Range Rover since then. When a poor child gets stolen but when the rich finds it belongs to his father and it's theirs. They should go completely,” he wrote on social media.
Sudi was yesterday questioned by the police over a multi-million-shilling land transaction that has been linked to a National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) fraudulent deal. Detectives said they had trailed part of the money to the MP.
“He is here to assist with investigations on allegations of public money fraud relating to NHIF,” Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said without elaborating.
On his part, Sudi stated that he was questioned about a property he sold in Eldoret town adding that he is not responsible for the source of the money that was paid to him.
“I have been grilled in DCI offices from 6.00 am in the morning until now 5.00 pm. I have been questioned about a transaction where I sold my property in Eldoret Town to a company that wanted to build a hospital on the said land. The transaction between me and the said company was completed after I received the money.
“They are now alleging that the money was wired from NHIF through the company to me. As a willing seller, I cannot smell the source of money that I received. So far, I have responded to all the questions they were asking. Iendelee namna hiyo,” he asserted.
