The airing of an exposé of the Child Welfare Society of Kenya (CWSK) by mainstream media left a lot of details out. For example, the sad stories of kids being mistreated left out the financial details on how the Chief Executive Officer Irene Mureithi makes money from the suffering of children.
The stomach-turning story of how children suffering from diseases such as cerebral palsy, were subjected to dubious & painful procedures at Stallion Rain Associates, a clinic that was neither recognized nor licensed by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council as reported by the Standard Group is just the tip of the iceberg.
Irene and company go to such great and weird lengths because of the money involved.
This expose that is being carried by cnyakundi.com today will reveal the details left out, so much to do with finances at the government run institution. It will be a long read and there’s no better day to release the information as received than today when the court made crucial decision in the case of Baby Kiano who has been given to his adopted parents, foreigners.
It is equally important to note that, today, that the Kenyan cabinet has announced an immediate ban on adoption of children by foreign nationals.
The special Cabinet meeting at State House, Nairobi chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta and attended by Deputy President William Ruto also directed the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection to formulate a new policy document to regulate the adoption of children by foreign nationals in Kenya.
The meeting also directed the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection to streamline operations of the Child Welfare Society of Kenya and those of children homes in the country, the statement on the presidential website states.
Child Welfare Society of Kenya Financial Impropriety Exposed
The following are brief but two main concerns about the Child Welfare Society of Kenya; both expose looting of funds.
First, there’s embezzlement of funds in development projects. Secondly, procurement flaws in the Child Welfare Society of Kenya which means that funds are looted.
The points to note are:
- All CWSK major Accounts are domiciled in Equity Kilimani Supreme(Recurrent A/c-0150291898458, OVC a/c-0150291898416 and Devt A/c-1470262374154)
- All the Contractors Accounts listed in the table above are domiciled in Equity Kilimani supreme i.e. the accounts were opened in Equity Kilimani Supreme or they were transferred there at a later date. The signatories are employees of C.W.S.K –Child Welfare Society of Kenya and the relatives of the E.O-Irene Mureithi.
Embezzlement of funds in Development projects
The following are the contractors accounts that were used to embezzle funds from the organization by the C.E.O. Irene Mureithi.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) should move now and investigate the issue of money laundering of illicit finances and arrest the looters.
The looters must be suspended immediately.
