, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 30 – Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua on Wednesday tabled documents before the Senate’s Public Investments Committee that showed he called for investigations into his then Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka over the thorn in Kenya’s flesh – land.
In a letter written by Ndegwa and Ndegwa Associates, his county government is seen as – on February 24, 2015 – calling on the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, National Lands Commission and Commission on Administrative Justice (Ombudsman) to launch investigations into how Musyoka came into possession of three parcels of land – legally or illegally.
“We write for you to immediately investigate and bring to book Honourable Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka… as Vice President, he illegally and irregularly influenced the allocation to himself and through proxies the following parcels of land… in the name of Desiral Ltd a company believed to be registered in his name and that of his spouse Pauline Kalonzo. In addition to the irregular acquisition of his current Yatta Farm as documented in the Ndung’u Report. As Vice President influenced an extra allocation to himself of about 200 acres of land adjacent to his original Yatta Farm, land that belonged to the National Youth Service.”
The close to two-year-old letter to the aforementioned investigative authorities continues to call for investigations into “allegations” that Musyoka received Sh350 in bribe money to join the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy; an amount, the letter states was delivered by Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama.
It also seeks investigations into how Musyoka put up the Sh200 million it costs to purchase a Eurocopter given, “he has no known profitable business undertakings.”
Later the same year, the documents tabled before Senate show, Mutua personally wrote to EACC CEO Halakhe Waqo calling for into investigations into Kalonzo stalwart and Mavoko MP Patrick Makau who he reported for putting in motion a plan to grab East African Portland Cement Company land.
“Our initial investigations show that squatters were imported to the said land a few months ago to create the environment for land invasion and grabbing.”
Hostilities between Musyoka and Mutua, who left the Wiper Democratic Movement to launch his own Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement, recently hit new lows when the former accused the latter of involvement in the kidnapping of his estranged Deputy Bernard Kiala’s daughter; it later emerged that she had simply been at a friend’s house.
