Investigations

Call Into Action For DPP To Revive Case And Arrest Stephen Githaiga The Fraud TARDA Boss Who Falsified His Birth Dates To Extend Term In Office

Published

on

Former TARDA boss Steven Githaiga.

Githaiga was one of the beneficiaries of a failed, compromised judicial system and his close contacts to the owners of power made him get away with a criminal act, that of falsifying his identification data. Stephen Maina Githaiga, which is his name captured on his national ID card he changed to Stephen Ruimuku Githaiga on his passport.

He altered his birth year from 1953 to 1958 to illegally extend his tenure. In this period, Githaiga earned Sh10 million illegally as salary which is outright criminal that he must be held into account for.

Githaiga also faced accusations of hiring 37 employees without the board’s approval. In a court petition filed earlier this year in March, they want him to pay Sh13.7 million, the total basic pay earned by the 37 he allegedly hired. Here’s a man who practiced nepotism at the highest grade and employed only his family members and close friends.

For long, Githaiga ran Tana & Athi River Development Authority(TARDA) as his own household. Stephen Githaiga First off, his initial and actual name on the ID card number 1901968 is Steven Maina Githaiga date of birth 1953, and he fraudulently changed to Steven Githaiga Ruimuku birth date 1958 in his passport no A1593455 acquired on 02/02/2011. By this, he reduced his age by five years as a scheme to allow him to serve more years in the industry.

The open irregularity was spotted by the Auditor General Ouko in the accounts of financial year 2013/14, and the matter was taken to EACC for investigations but knowing the nature of things in Kenya, the embattled MD compromised the commissioners. Intel reached Kenya Insights then indicating that the parastatal was set to receive about Sh.6B for Athi River conservation and upgrade projects, and it was for that purpose that Githaiga structured ways to buy time and tap into this cash. He used that allocation as the bargaining point with the EACC and anyone who dared raise a voice on his irregularities.

In his 2013/14 report, the Auditor General noted that TARDA had lost Sh717,088,891. In his 2017 report, the AG said that the authority had received Sh.247,572,911 but couldn’t account for Sh.32.637,973 which in Kenyan terms is looted money. We’ve not even gotten into 2016/17 when the authority had multi billion projects but we will break it down in our subsequent series. Irregularities in tender awards which was also put on Githaiga cost the company huge loses.

Githaiga was interdicted for misappropriation of Ksh.190M for ESP programme in TANA DELTA which he has never accounted for to date. EACC detectives Eunice Hinga and Ibrahim Lorot who were handling his cases were accused by staff members in their report to the US of having been heavily compromised such that his disobedience to EACC summons went unpunished and his fines left to catch dust, they must therefore be investigated as well.

Githaiga bucket of lies included him holding a PhD from CUEA, however, our investigations revealed otherwise, he only went to Mosoriot TTC where he went for his P1 course and that’s the furthest he went. In his bio, he claims to be a lecturer at USIU in the business department, Kenya Insights has reached to the university who disowned and certified that he was not a lecturer in the school as claimed.

Also, an area that should interest the investigators, the 165 square kilometre High Grand Falls Dam, that was to cost Sh150 billion, and expected to hold over 5.6 billion cubic metres of water that to irrigate over 250,000 hectares of land and produce over 700MW of electricity. The devil is in the details.

We’re now calling upon the ODPP and DCI to revive this case in which Kenyan taxpayers money must have been embezzled in billions and recover the stolen loot. Masinga Dam Project which was to be constructed at a tune of Sh.6B and what was one of the main reasons Githaiga extended his term by falsifying his age was also his fraud scheme. In fact , the Treasury had at one point refused to approve funds.

Interestingly, given his embezzling nature, Githaiga is alleged to have had approached Chinese Construction Cartel for the construction of his dam. They even bribed him with his current V8 car as a tip to be awarded the tender. These accusations should give investigators the leads they need.

Githaiga is also accused of having stolen from TARDA a LandRover Discovery Reg No. KAD 266D which he sold to current National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi who doubles as his closest friend. Githaiga’s relationship with Muturi explains why the unresolved issues on audited accounts have never been handled despite having been tabled to the Public Investment Committee several times. It were unfortunate that the speaker could have used his position to block out the petition and opted to protect his friend and if anything, Muturi himself is a beneficiary of the Githaiga’s looting since he sold him the car.

As we embark on a long term campaign to revive TARDA looting amongst other forgotten files, we believe in the competence of the DPP Noordin and DCI Kinoti that the likes of Githaiga who for long thought they’re untouchable and looted public funds without hiccups, need to be brought to books and more importantly the illegally acquired wealth be recovered and such characters be thrown into jail.

Githaiga’s case is special because he’s for long fronted that he’s untouchable given his close relationships with the DP Ruto and President’s cousin Muigai. He even made contributions in millions to the Jubilee campaign kitty as a way of buying himself security. This is going to be one of the tests and we’re challenging and watching which way the ODPP and DCI are going to take given the open illegalities that took place in Githaiga’s tenure, he must not get away with this and we’re keen to realize justice.

The opposition senator is among a gang of six cartels that are under the keen eye of DCI’s investigations of their involvement in the Gold scam. The gold fraud has implied strong complaints from the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.

The DCI is trailing a scheme that saw the royal family scammed multi-millions allegedly to secure a release of 5 tons of gold that had been purportedly seized at JKIA.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations says the alleged seizure was, supposedly, to be the first batch of a 23 tons gold shipment that was to be illegally brought in the country from DRC.

The trail has unraveled that the opposition senator flew to Dubai severally to persuade Royal Family that he has associates who would release alleged seized gold.

The said opposition Senator, a politician and a businessman who runs a private jet leasing company at Wilson Airport have since denied all the allegations from the Royal family.

Preliminary investigations show that the scheme started September 25, last year when the Senator and his group approached a nephew of Sheikh Maktoum, Mr Ali Zandi. Ali is a representative of Dubai based gold trading company, Zlivia.

The cartel told Mr. Ali that they can deliver 4.6tons of gold from DRC. They had secured services of a Russian gold dealer who wanted down payments and transportation charges to Dubai.

The senator and his cronies contacted Mr. Ali on September 27 alleging that the gold consignment had been incarcerated by customs officials at JKIA.

Investigations indicate that Massoud Zandi a representative of Zlivia Gold Trading Company called the Senator for help and on 15th December last year the opposition senator flew to Dubai on the invitation of Mr. Zandi.

The senator demanded cash to ease the release of the alleged confiscated consignment. Mr. Zandi was of the contrary opinion and flew in the country on 24th December last year with hopes of meeting a senior Kenyan government official.

Mr Zandi could not manage a sit down with the government official instead the senator and his cartels took Zandi to JKIA and showed him sealed boxes allegedly holding Gold.

On January 21, this year, Zandi was secretly moved at night to meet a Cabinet secretary imposter at a Karen Hotel. The senior government imposter met Mr. Zandi in a car in the presence of the Senator.

They, the Senator and the CS imposter guaranteed Zandi that his Gold will be released in a week time after he flies out back to Dubai. Zandi says he has neither received his gold nor heard from the six cartels months later.

Sheikh Maktoum has forwarded a written complain to Kenya through the Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i. The Royal family leader has requested immediate actions to those involved in masterminding a gold scam against the Family.

Sheikh decided to contact the government directly after the cartels lied to him that the delay to release the consignment was caused the DusitD2 attack.
