Consolata Nkatha Bucha alias Connie Maina before her nomination as IEBC Commissioner had a criminal case in which she was accused of defrauding Ksh 280 million from the Museums Of Kenya. She went into exile in Australia and changed her identity to Consolata Nkatha in a bid to conceal her real identity. Try to google ‘Nkatha’ and the much you can get are links relating to IEBC job ONLY.
When her husband mysteriously died, sources reveal that Mrs. Nkatha remains a prime suspect in the murder when he question her drug trafficking business. After the death of the husband (Mr. Maina Keengwa a man from Ekerenyo, Nyamira county), Connie Maina did not attend the funeral and instead eloped with the best man at her wedding- a pilot with whom she robbed his house and chased him away.
When she was nominated at IEBC, her former colleagues at KWS expressed surprise alluding to her criminal past which disqualifies her from holding a public office. One of her former KWS colleague wondered, ” how could Kenyans throw away a team of educated IEBC and hire a trainee secretary who could not even write a simple letter?”
While at KWS, Nkatha’s alleged intimacy with former director Richard Leakey is attributed to her rapid and largely unmerited promotion to SRO without any papers at all. She travelled all over the world with Leakey who was alleged to be her boyfriend and it is believed that it is through these foreign trips that she met drug barons. Nkatha was later on forced to leave KWS in disgrace when a new competent director Mr Kipngetich joined the service.
While at KWS, Nkatha was involved in land robbery cases with her former deceased husband with whom they defrauded the Maasai elders to sell them large acres of land at throw away prices only for them to resell at higher prices. In the process of subdividing the parcels of land and processing title deed, they illegally changed the acres to hectares causing people of Kajiado and Ngong losing large tracts of land.
Additionally, Nkatha academic certificates are a point of deep concern as she cannot specifically name her former classmates in campus.
Those who knows her say she started off as a secretariat trainee at Kenya Wildlife Services and not much known of her professional background. From Australia, she responded to the IEBC vacancy announcement when she submitted her application with suspected forged papers and a revised CV which resulted to her coming back to Kenya just to attend the IEBC public interview.
Investigations done at the university she claim to have attended in England indicate that she registered but did not attend classes. It is believed that the panellists were mesmerized by her international non-existing titles and certificates all of which are forgeries.
