Car­tels plot to kick out Mturi from KPA

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Kenya Ports Author­ity man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Cather­ine Mturi has re­ceived sup­port from the pres­i­dency as she fights car­tels who want to re­move her.

In­sid­ers told the Star the car­tels are schem­ing to “fix” the MD be­cause she is a threat to them.

“We know there are car­tels at the port, which are hatch­ing plots to re­move Mturi. Those are the kicks of a dy­ing horse. They will not suc­ceed. I am fully be­hind Mturi,” said for­mer Kisauni MP Ana­niah Mwaboza.

Mwaboza, an ad­viser in the Of­fice of the Deputy Pres­i­dent, said the car­tels are try­ing to use for­mer and cur­rent MPs from Coast to im­pli­cate Mturi in a ma­jor cor­rup­tion scan­dal.

He said the politi­cians try to in­flu­ence em­ploy­ment of their peo­ple, who they use to in­flu­ence ir­reg­u­lar busi­ness trans­ac­tions.

“We will do what­ever is needed to en­sure she cleans that port,” Mwaboza said be­fore fly­ing to Morocco for a 10day UN cli­mate change con­fer­ence.
