While it is true that nothing really great can be accomplished without teamwork, it is amazing the difference that a single person can make. Kenyans now know this after the change of guard at the KACC, Kenya's anti-corruption body. Suddenly, with the same laws (because the new constitution is yet to be fully implemented) the anti-corruption watch-dog has teeth that are biting deep and causing many politicians sleepless nights.
Two days ago the man at the helm of this suddenly dreaded body PLO Lumumba called a press conference and announced that they were at an advanced stage of prosecuting the next big fish. A cabinet minister no less. And this time it will be for mis-using CDF (Constituency Development Fund). Lumumba revealed that somebody had come forward with evidence that they felt was compelling.
Calling press conferences to announce these kind of things is in itself a very clever strategy because it will be easier for the press and public to know if the prosecution is stopped. By the way this is a very likely happening because information made available to this blogger indicates that there are many politicians looking to make deals with the executive to be protected from Lumumba and his boys. Naturally some of these guys are bound to make offers that the executive cannot refuse.
So who is this minister? That is the big question on the minds of Kenyans. I have tried to do plenty of digging with my sources but nobody seems to have an idea. Seems that these guys who presented the evidence were very careful because carelessness would easily cause them to lose their lives because going to jail is not a joke.
However I do have plenty of information on the ministers in government who are corrupt including one notorious one who is said to continue carrying home briefcases full of cash everyday from the office. Regular readers of this column know why information on ODM ministers is so readily available while there is hardly anything on PNU affiliated cabinet members. If you read an earlier post you will know that it is because tax payers funds have been used extensively to investigate ODM ministers and naturally this cash briefcase carrying minister is from ODM.
Sources indicate that the next minister in court will be from PNU. This will help Lumumba and his boys paint a picture of being fair in targeting both sides of the political divide. However other sources insist that once again that minister will be from the ODM side. I have no way of telling who is right so we shall have to wait and see what happens there. However if the next arrest will be from the ODM side chances are very high that it will be a certain rather careless fellow called Otieno Kajwang. Read about the trouble ODM went into to save this unpopular MP in 2007. In life there are people who are usually meticulous and very careful in what they do so that it is very difficult to pin them down. Retired President Moi comes to mind. John Michuki (who has done countless deals over the years) is yet another. Mr Kajwang has however bee overly careless since his days as a lawyer where his license to practice was literally taken away because of some client money that developed feet and disappeared into the undergrowth.
Folks, all in all, things are about to get very ugly and I will explain exactly why and how in my next explosive post sometime this coming weekend.
