WPP ScanGroup CEO Bharat Thakrar under fire for sexual harassment, embezzlement

Bharat Thakrar – CEO WPP ScanGroup

Bharat Thakrar, the founder and CEO OF WPP Scangroup, East Africa’s largest Integrated Marketing Communications company is under fire for sexual harassment and embezzlement of company funds.

Mr Thakrar who founded the firm in 1982 is said to be in the habit of luring female employees with treats through expensive business trips, but forces them to sleep with him and pays them for their silence, a WPP investigation shows.

The investigations revealed that Thakrar has also created numerous dummy PR agencies that he uses to steal funds from WPP ScanGroup by fake invoicing for non-existent works.

A female staff that spoke anonymously with cnyakundi.com said that the ‘business trips’ often cost a lot of money where they are silenced with money after the sexual act which most can’t refuse for fear of losing their jobs.

However, some were not comfortable with the arrangement.

KPMG audit

It comes as no surprise as this ‘Boys Club’ member is used to corruption.

It is Thakrar that covered up for corrupt corporate Safaricom Plc when the KPMG Audit report exposed the high level of corruption in that Telco.

It is the same ScanGroup CEO that colluded with Twitter and powers that be to report Twitter accounts that it deemed to be either too critical of its client or taking away advertising revenues.

Bharat Thakrar bribes Safaricom senior management at Safaricom in order to keep his deficient contract operational.

ScanGroup does mediocre marketing concepts for Safaricom but gets away with it because of the above.

ScanGroup has also enlisted tier-3 sycophants on social media whose work is to retweet anything dispatched by the characters we mentioned above. For example, in the recent Home Fibre scam that the Telco was caught for, these low-lifes who live off freebies, merchandise and tickets to events that ScanGroup oversees.

You’ve witness their defense of the Home Fibre scam on Twitter and some blogs, because, as long as this chain of idlers is fed with freebies, they will spend all day retweeting and doing subliminal campaigns for corporates, using inferior or copied concepts.

The KPMG audit showed Safaricom lost millions in illegal contracts. In fact, the report says ScanGroup is one of those that benefitted from illegal contract award.

The report indicates that Safaricom sent out Request for Proposals (RFP) on 19th December 2013 and closed on 23rd January 2014. Amongst the companies who submitted bids included RedHouse Group, Nurturn Bates, Express DDBO, Transcend Media, Scanad Kenya and J. Walter Thompson Kenya Limited.

Although Transcend Media was ranked first; during the technical and commercial analysis, former Safaricom CEO, the late Bob Collymore influenced that Scanad was finally appointed because he had agreed to split bribes with Bharat Thakrar.

In the same informal agreement, Bob Collymore turned a blind eye to Scanad’s obvious incompetence, mediocre marketing concepts and failure to deliver on schedule leading to overall inefficiency in Safaricom.
