Transport CS James Macharia Hires Influencers To Slander Standard Media Group

Beleaguered Transport CS James Macharia is behind social media campaigns targetting the Standard Media Group, the editor of this site can exclusively reveal.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has refused to sack the corrupt Cabinet Secretary despite mountains of evidence linking James Macharia to corruption and abuse of office.

According to some influencers that spoke to us, they are receiving up to Ksh. 527 each for the campaign that is now targetting the Standard Media Group, a media group Macharia claims is out to finish him.

We have also received reports that attempts by Macharia to compromise the Standard Media Group have backfired since Dennis Galava has played hardball hence the social media attacks targetting the journalist.

” In his latest report on how the Government spent money, outgoing financial czar Edward Ouko found four of the five State departments under CS Macharia to have either misrepresented or misstated their financial statements, pointing to a misuse of funds that earned them adverse audit opinion.

Even the Maritime and Shipping Affairs Department, which did not get an adverse opinion, had a qualified opinion, meaning it had not offered every document that would enable Mr Ouko to give it a clean bill of health. The Auditor-General concluded in his report that: “the financial statements exhibit significant misstatement with the underlying accounting records…

Problems are widespread, persistent and require considerable interventions by the management to rectify.” reads part of the standard article.

The standard had criticized his development record in the same article and linked his ministry to the inflation of road development projects.

” The 11-kilometre Dongo Kundu Bypass in Mombasa, for instance, cost Sh11 billion.The second and third phases of the project, an 8.9-kilometre road section between Mwache Junction and Mteza, and a 6.9-kilometre road from Mteza and Kibundani connecting the highway to the Likoni-Lunga Lunga road, will cost Sh30 billion, translating to close to Sh2 billion per kilometre.A key contributor to the high cost is two sea bridges, with a length of 2.1 kilometres.On the less complex roads that do not require additional features like interchanges, a look at the data shows taxpayers are spending an average of Sh181 million for every new kilometre of tarmac being laid.This is a more than 100 per cent increase from the Sh83 million per kilometre average spend in 2013. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, the average price per kilometre of road is Sh34 million, while in Ethiopia, it is Sh83 million.”

Major projects under Macharia’s docket have stalled or delayed, while others are surrounded by a host of controversies, the Standard had also revealed.

The media group has also been critical of him on many occasions and it seems the corrupt Transport CS is under fire.
