Impunity Thriving In Muthaiga With Peponi Springs Structre Erected On Riparian Land And Road Reserve

Published

on

Peponi Springs

Hello Kenya Insights,

I’d like you to highlight an issue of illegal structures in the most influential neighborhoods in Nairobi where the elite class reside, deep in Muthaiga, stands Peponi Springs which sits on a riparian land and on a road reserve.

When left to flourish, impunity and corruption becomes deeply embedded in the fabric of our society affecting each and every one of us. I am not the first person to tell you about the unprecedented levels of corruption in our country has and whether you live in Kibera or Kitisuru, corruption has become a way of life.

Section of the facility

Peponi Springs doubles as a car wash and restaurant smack in the middle of the upmarket Muthaiga and Kitisuru estates. The bar not only plays loud music but is slowly cutting trees to build structures along the river.

So I ask myself, who in Sonko’s government approved these structures to be built right next to a river in the middle of the neighbourhood that houses Kenya’s high and mighty? 

That is the audacity of corruption today! In the wake of the Taj Mall demolition, I’m also keen to see whether the residents of Muthaiga and Kitisuru will act in protest to protect their homes and investments, or will they give in to the will of the owners of Peponi Springs? 

According to contacts on Peponi Springs Facebook Page, the establishment belongs to one Mr. Leonard N. Njogu … We see you Mr. Njogu, question is, have Gov Sonko and NEMA seen you? Just how powerful is this person that he easily managed to put up such a structure in the heart of the serene neighborhood and create havoc with his loud music.

How Sameer Group Of Companies Was Defrauded Sh80M By Conmen Posing As President Uhuru In A Corrupt Deal

Published

on

Sameer Africa Group chairman Naushad Merali.

Conmen posing as President Uhuru Kenyatta have defrauded a Nairobi businessman of Sh80 million pretending that they would award him with state tenders.

Detectives from the DCI Special Crime Prevention Unit over the weekend arrested seven men believed to be part of the cartel that conned officials from Sameer Group of Companies.

So well organised are the criminals, that they have perfected the art of mimicking the President’s voice to near perfection.

Investigators say the conmen, operate as State House officials.

The caller, who imitates Uhuru and speaks in a voice almost similar to that of the President, tells businessmen of major government works which he asks them to take up.

The ‘fake President’, asks the victim to provide some money for logistical support.

He promises to send some State House officials and other staff from the Interior ministry to the victim’s office to collect the facilitation cash.

Men dressed in expensive suits then arrive in the office of the targeted businessman and introduce themselves as the staff of State House sent by the President to collect cash.

The ‘State House staff’ arrive in high-endvehicles and under police escort. They then collect the cash and disappear.

Highly placed sources familiar with the investigations said rogue police officers from Kilimani police station had been hired to provide security services to the State House imposters.

The con scheme came to light last month after officials from Sameer reportedly wrote to State House seeking an audience with the president over a tender deal.

Shocked State House officials after receiving the letter are said to have contacted the Sameer group official and inquired of the deal between themselves and the ‘fake President Uhuru’.

The matter was reported to the police and officers from the DCI headquarters opened investigations.

Police also impounded three high-endvehicles that include Toyota land cruisers and V8s which the conmen were using.

The arrested men have been identified asJoseph Waswa, Duncan Muchai, Isaac Wajekeche, William Simiyu, David Luganya,Gilbert Kirunja and Anthony Wafula.

Administration Police Constable Joash Ombati who was guarding a bank nearby, boarded a taxi to chase after the suspects.

Ombati receives his promotion.

The Police officer shot in the air forcing the thieves to surrender before he handcuffed them as members of the public watched with many urging him to shoot dead the suspects.

Mr. Ombati remained calm even as a furious mob urged him to shoot and kill.

He managed to recover Sh400,000 which was part of the Sh732,000 that the suspects had stolen from the complainant Mr Amos Charo.

Ombati would then be awarded by Interior CS Matiang’i for his bravery the government was given the heroic AP a Distinguished Service Award in November 2018 barely a month after his commendable work.

That wasn’t the end, Joash Ombati who single-handedly pursued two thugs in Nairobi and recovered KSh 400,000 has just been promoted to the rank of Corporal from being a AP Constable.
