Cartels plot to kick out Mturi from KPA
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.
