Uhuru’s un­used Sh2.1m cruise suite ex­poses rot in Rio

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The re­cent rev­e­la­tion by Nock is gravely shock­ing. If what they said hap­pened in Rio is true, then our sys­tems are more rot­ten than we can imag­ine. In now ap­pears that the late Tan­za­nian Pres­i­dent Julius Ny­erere was not wrong when he called Kenya “A man eat man so­ci­ety”. Just how was Sh2.1 mil­lion paid to book a room on a cruise ship for Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta, “in the event the head of state de­cided to go to Rio”? Could it be a scheme to steal govern­ment money? The com­mit­tee prob­ing the scan­dal should get the full ra­tio­nale for these ex­or­bi­tant ex­pen­di­tures.
