Kenya Airports Authority has always been a corrupt den and a graft cash cow for executives who loot the parastatal.
Several of its CEOs and senior managers have been sacked following abuse of office and others like General Manager of ICT Robert Kasaine ole Pertet are hanging on using courts to shield him. We intend to show a pattern of gross abuse of office that has run over years and support our claims with corroborating articles and court case files.
Former MD Stephen Gichuki was engaged in questionable tendering of Sh55 billion Greenfield Terminal at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and was finally sent packing after the JKIA fire in August 2013.
Lucy Mbugua replaced Stephen Gichuki only for her to be embroiled in the dubious Passenger Transfer Services tender (Apron Bus Services) at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport that saw her sacked alongside Finance General Manager John Thumbi and Acting Airport Engineer Christopher Warutere.
The former acting MD Yatich Kagungo is also mired in his own scandal and has gone to court to restrain KAA from subjecting him to any disciplinary meetings for being part of a group of the top management that wanted to ‘sell off’ JKIA, the property of Kenya Airports Authority, to Kenya Airways (KQ).Yatich alleges he has been kept in the dark about management meetings despite the fact that he is a senior manager and has only been receiving newspapers, tea and his salary thus he was an idler receiving hefty renumeration as is the norm in government offices.
The General Manager of ICT Robert Kasaine ole Pertet, has been running dubious fraud schemes.Samson Kimilu,the General Manager of Risk Management and Internal Audit,conducted an investigation into the ICT department and found that fraud had been committed by Pertet.From the court case file in link below,Pertet intimidated Kimilu from revealing his malpractices to the KAA Board and proceeded to court to forcefully gag Kimilu from spilling the beans.

Regrettably, the court sided with the crook Pertet and prevented Kimilu from presenting his findings.Its a shame and a travesty for the legal apparatus to operate in this manner and encourage impunity.
With such a grotesque pattern of corruption,its no wonder that KAA is in shambles.
