Wafula Wakoli an office assistant to the office of Bungoma Senator is a man on the run after it emerged that he has been earning two salaries from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).
From reports in our possession, the trained teacher has been using youths to teach on his behalf while he engages in politics. He gets the full salary and then pays the hired youth a bit of it.
In 2013, he campaigned for Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula at the time, he was teaching Kiswahili and History at Baptist Girls in Bungoma County.
After elections, he was appointed as Office Manager in the Office of the Senator drawing salary from the Parliamentary Service Commission.
He did not resign as a teacher, instead he continued to use some trained yet unemployed youths to do the teaching.
For 8 years, he has worked as Office Manager and PA to Senator Wetangula.
The DCI is now reportedly looking for him over fraud.
Wakoli, who most have known as Wetangula’s PA, has earned a salary as a teacher for the last 8 years.
Sources say that by the time he was being taken up by the former Senate Minority leader in 2013, he was a TSC teacher in Tongaren but never resigned. Instead, he has always hired and paid fresh graduates to pick his lessons.
How he was caught
He did the ‘hiring’ successfully in Milima Secondary School until recently when he ran out of luck following his transfer to Bungoma High School where the no-nonsense Principal Mr Godfrey told him to teach or quit when he tried introducing somebody as a stand-in teacher in his absence. The intervention of his boss could not save him an interdiction, now a few months old.
It’s reported that Wetangula who is also fighting for his integrity on various issues among them the gold scam and the Ford Kenya takeover is unhelpful to his embattled office manager. Wafula Wakoli is accused of breaching the public service Act that requires all civil servants intending to venture in Political positions to either resign or be seconded. His salary has since been stopped.
