Mystery of ‘faceless’ individual in Sh297m maize scam

It is emerging that there may be other individuals behind the NCPB fraud case in which Sirisia MP John Waluke and Grace Wakhungu were implicated and sentenced to serve time in jail or to pay a fine of close to 1 billion each. According to a report published on the Daily Nation, Waluke and Wakhungu only received Sh90 million out of the Sh297 million in question, raising questions on the identity of unnamed beneficiaries who took the bulk of the money but are still at large.

According to the Daily Nation, court documents are now revealing that there are more players involved in the scam than what the public knew of, ”Waluke and Wakhungu are small tadpoles in that game. There is the big fish and that is where the story is”.

Questions have also been raised on the processes in which a company named as Erad Supplies was awarded  the tender to supply maize to the NCPB. It is alleged that powerful people heavily influenced the tender awarding process, implying that there may be an intricate web in the scheme possibly implicating people who participated in various stages of the tendering process.
