Jet Fuel Sold As Kerosene; Details On How Oil Managing Companies Work With KPC Staff Including MD Sang To Steal Billions From The Company

Published

on

KPC MD Joe Sang

Following red flags in the system, DCI opened investigations into the alleged embezzlement of funds through theft by some oil marketing companies working in cahoots with Kenya Pipeline Staff By way of unapproved Fuel advancement to the OMCs.

This came at a time when Supplycor one of the KPC’s OMCs placed a loss of Sh1B to oil spillage and vandalism. This was acknowledged by the company’s MD Joe Sang who then took step to forward the bills to CIC Insurance Company.

The spillage volume and loss depth was not only exaggerated but opened a box of pandora on just how the OMCs collude with KPC to steal money from the public coffers. Private investigations were initiated as well to ascertain if indeed upto 11,000,000 of oil was lost to spillage and of losses registered were genuine.

Investigations proved that claims made were not only exaggerated but false as they couldn’t be supported by facts. “We’re of the opinion that the loses can’t be supported by facts. There also seem to be complicity in theft of product from KPC in cahoots with OMCs leading to a huge exposure.” Concluded the report seen by Kenya Insights.

The report in conclusion recommended further verification and auditing to completely clean up KPC and hold responsible the staff and OMCs involved in the scam. It is in this respect for further investigations that DCI summoned for questioning the following KPC staff suspected to be deeply involved in this oil theft syndicate;

  • Mr Joe Sang
  • Madam Filicity Biriri
  • Gloria Kafafa
  • Mr Samuel Odoyo
  • Samson Soimo
  • Antipas Tirop
  • Felix Relimoi
  • Pius Mwendwa
  • Francis Cherotich
  • Carol Kiplangat
  • Beatrice Ogutu
  • Mr Juma Amina

In the investigative report, it was determined that there’s an elaborate fraud scheme by the OMCs and KPC staff in the oil theft. Several schemes were detected.

Selling Jet Fuel As Oil

In establishing the cause, source and or nature of the loss, actions executed by players in causing the loss, investigators were deployed within terminus and JKIA compound. In an instance during the investigations, a bridger, cleverly not with active tracking device, was spotted at a petrol station in Mlolongo selling jet fuel as kerosene.

Investigating Operations accounts procedures and part of airside at JKIA where the theft also plays. Investigators established that, there were missing Aviation Delivery Receipts(ADRs) and that KPC don’t have control of refueling at the airside leaving everything at the mercy of the OMCs. A disaster.

KPC lacks boundary meter to show actual volumes delivered at the airside leaving space for manipulation. Even though the report acknowledged loss of product, it established too that  OMCs were perpetuating theft of product at the airside which they had total control. Ideally, the OMCs are expected to present their ADRs instantly, they delay issuance sometimes for upto 24 hours probably to create time for manipulation in the theft schemes.

Loss through defective meters

Investigators monitored all pump overs to the OMCs with operations and shockingly discovered that despite no physical proof of spillage of oil, the OMCs continued to report loses as a part of the theft plots.

A huge disparity was noted between the ATG movements to the UFM meters and this how a scheme was unearthed. A KPC official liaised with OMCs to wrongly calibrate the meters a fraudulent plot that led to an average loss of 50,000L monthly. Money which goes into their pockets and those in the chain.

Loss through water drainage

Investigations following into an alleged water drain done in May 4th this year leading to a loss of 86 c.u M due to apparent water ingress opened yet again another scandal.

Staff who had claimed to have witnessed the drainage were found to be lying as it was established that none was present and neither entered the tank farm going to show the complicity in the theft. A deliberate effort was initiated by the staff to transfer the cooked loses from the drainage to the western line. Report recommended prosecutions of KPC staff involved in this elaborate scam.

Discrepancy Between Physical Stocks And Book Balances

Despite the investigations acknowledging loses due to spillage and illegal connections, documentations couldn’t tally with the 11,000,000 loss declared going to prove a plotted scam.

Having been involved with the end of the year stock taking as of June 2018, investigations found that KPC seemed to be holding less physical stock in the storage than what the OMCs books were. As of 30th June, a check on physical stock and book balances, investigations found out that KPC was in the negative by 23,117,720 litres. The theft is in the books.

Pumping Water In Place Of Oil

Investigations found excessive water in the system in which it was established that companies in operation weren’t in full compliance with the line field requirements.

It was established that some KPC staff were compromised by OMCs to pump water instead of oil. The water pumped is then accounted as stock leading to more losses to KPC. There are ATG water detectors in all tanks such that water can’t pass through undetected, however, when pumping the water as oil, the detectors are strategically disconnected.

In summary, there’s elaborate scam by the OMCs To Steal Oil then place false claims of loss to get compensation from the insurance. It also doesn’t make sense as to why KPC should be covering the insurance and not the companies.

John Munyes the Petroleum and Mining CS has already received the report in a replying letter to KPC MD Sang he says, “the findings of this report seems disturbing noting its conclusions.” Despite having full knowledge of the scandal, the CS is yet to take an action on this theft instead dancing around the issue prompting our curiosity on this levels of his involvement in the chain given his jelly reactions. He either act on the report or come out clean. He can’t act only if he was a beneficiary, knowing Kenya, nothing can be surprising.

Supplycor Ltd which placed a Sh1B loss is just hit one of the many OMCs, this is just a hint of the bigger syndicate now rope in the rest and see the billions being swindled. Why do the OMCs claim loss of oil that is in KPC’s custody, shouldn’t it be KPC noting the loss itself?

Curiously, these loses aren’t captured in the KPC’s annual financial report at least according to the latest that we’ve seen. These loses have become a norm year in and out yet things remain the same, it’s unclear what measures have been put on place over the years to avoid continually losing oil through spillage in order to stop claiming insurance every year.

Whats taking the DCI and the ODPP to arrest and prosecute this open theft that is costing the taxpayer billions annually. The DCI have the names of perpetrators who are not only walking free but still in office a matter that is disturbing given that the board has the mandate to sweep clean the office. The question is how long and how much more of theft orchestrated by management will it take for a serious action to be taken.

In the subsequent series we move to individual OMCs and how deeply involved they’re in stealing oil money with already named KPC staff and how money exchange hands including other players in the insurance companies.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum the leader of Emirate of Dubai has filled complain to Kenya that an opposition senator has conned the Royal family Ksh 400 million of gold.

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.
