Kenya is a country ruled by controversies, confusions and to some extent, the highest level of madness among government officials.
Kenya seems to be the only nation in the world where corruption is catered for in the national budget with virtually every person in a leadership position looting public resources like there is no tomorrow.
Kenya loses at least one trillion shillings annually to corruption with the war against the rot in various department hitting a wall. Kenyans now seem helpless and left at the mercy of the angry and hungry cartels.
Imagine this; the Ministry of Irrigation took 27 million of taxpayers’ money to procure branded caps and polo shirts for a project that never took place. Funny. Right? But this is Kenya.
Do you remember the Thwake Multi-Purpose Development Project? Call it Thwake Dam. This is an 82 billion project that was never launched. The procured branded caps and polo shirts are now gathering dust in Ministry stores.
Already 42.365 billion shillings have been approved by the Government of Kenya together with the African Development Fund from the African Development Bank (AfDB) with the remaining 39.845 billion shillings still yet to be allocated.
The project was to be constructed in three phases with phase one comprising of a multi-purpose dam as well as associated works with the government coughing out 32.342 billion shillings and the AfDB 8 billion shillings.
The second phase was set to comprise hydropower generation with the government using 52 million shillings and the AfDB 3,83 billion shillings while the third phase will be the construction of water supply; sanitation and wastewater infrastructure.
