Car In Bungoma Witchcraft Saga Linked To Ministry Of Petroleum Chief Economist

Joseph Wafula: Corrupt Chief Economist Ministry of Petroleum

On February 3rd 2016, Citizen TV highlighted a story where 5 men went to Bungoma to harass a lady.

Among the five, two were dressed as ‘pastors’ from an African Traditional Church, of the remaining three, two were policemen.

They drove on a Toyota Harrier registration number KBS 994F to the village in Bungoma, harassed motorists along the way, extorted villagers at night and preached false gospel during the day.

Their benefactor? A man named Joseph Wafula, then a mere economist at the Ministry of Petroleum.

Who is Joseph Wafula?

Joseph Wafula currently serves as the Chief Economist for the extended Ministry of Petroleum and Mining under Cabinet Secretary (CS) John Munyes.

He is also said to work very closely with Energy CS Charles Keter, Energy PS Andrew Kamau, Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) MD Dr. Macharia Irungu, and EPRA boss, Pavel Oimeke as top echelons of energy injustice, the looting cartel of energy coffers and the slavermasters of overpriced power bills in Kenya.

The economist is the money man who brings it in through corrupt deals.

Why was the car in Bungoma for such a mission in the first place?

Wafula is said to be a deeply superstitious guy who believes in the works of Waganga (Witches and Wizards).

He has severally been heard boasting about how he has managed to succeed because of powers of witchcraft. He even brags his promotion and dirty wealth are from jujus.

Lavish Lifestyle Of Ministry Of Petroleum Principal Economist Worries Colleagues


A source told that, “The guy believes in Uganga so badly but most of the guys he picks are conmen who swindle him his money. So, he had sent those guys to arrest a woman whom he accused of bewitching him. But it backfired. So, he hired two policemen to effect the ” arrest” in collaboration with the fake waganga”.

Our sources in the Police service intimate that contrary to his claims that his car had been rented, the truth of the matter is that he had contracted the two policemen to escort his personal waganga to harass and intimidate an innocent woman he claimed was bewitching him. The car was impounded by Bungoma DCI boss and the imposters arrested. And he had to bribe their way out to the tune of Sh1 million.

In the next article, we reveal how Mr. Wafula has built a palatial home in Bungoma, complete with a swimming pool and list properties he has bought with blood money and their locations. All this with a salary of Sh120,000. How blessed?
