The Kenya Ports Authority MD Dan Manduku has gone underground as arrests loom over procurement scandals that have threatened to bring down the KPA.
The MD Daniel Manduku who has panicked knows his days are numbered, and his phone remains switched off most of the time as he fears that big brother is watching and after him.
Daniel Manduku reported to the office over a year and four months ago as Acting Managing Director. For the few months he has been at the top, Manduku has engaged in corruption and impunity.
It was thought that this man would turnaround the fortunes of the port, but it seems mismanagement is his forte and scandals have been his daily output.
Mountains of evidence have also confirmed that Dr. Manduku is presiding over nepotism and corruption in hiring of staff at the authority.
A few weeks ago, the arrogant boss told a journalist to ”write what they wished” after the journalist sought for comment about some scams at the scandal-ridden authority.
The MD later started trembling and begging media not to expose the scams further after he felt the heat and stupidity of his reckless remarks.
The journalist who was overheard complaining about the arrogance of the MD promised to dig deeper and reveal more about the corruption at the authority.
The KPA is under a multi-agency investigation by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the DPP.
A few days ago, Manduku and Former KPA MD Catherine Mturi-Wairi banks accounts were frozen after requests by the office of DPP Noordin Haji. This is after suspicious monies were traced to their accounts.
Manduku, who is DP Ruto’s proxy has been attempting to bribe detectives to go slow on him but anyone linked to DP Ruto must fall, they said.
The dynasties, in a bid to starve DP Ruto, launched an anti-corruption campaign targeting parastatals that were bankrolling him. That is why neither the DPP nor the DCI had interest in the axed National Oil CEO Maryjane Mwangi because the looting of NOCK was purely a Kikuyu affair.
