According to the Star, The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission are now going after corrupt Kakamega county governor Fernandez Barasa who served as the Ketracco CEO before resigning and vying as governor.
“A group of top government bureaucrats who served in former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration in the energy sector could be in trouble with anti-graft detectives”
The Star says that they have established the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has opened investigations into a controversial power deal that saw taxpayers lose Sh18 billion.
It is established that the money was paid to a private investor due to delays in connecting the Lake Turkana Wind Power to the national grid.
But now it is evident that the wind farm project touted to be the largest in Africa was poorly managed and that blunders by government entities cost the taxpayer.
Baraza stole a lot of money from Ketracco, and this blog has documented all his corruption even as accountability agencies watched and did nothing.
Fernandez Barasa lived in fear when he served at Ketracco.
At one time, there was drama at a five-star hotel in Nairobi when the then-CEO Barasa took refuge in the washrooms when DCI George Kinoti checked in.
Fernandez Barasa was reportedly having fun with friends when Kinoti turned up.
The CEO, whose parastatal was under investigation, thought that his proverbial 40 days were over and sprinted for the toilet. He was later squirrelled out through the kitchen back door. Kinoti was apparently at the hotel on private business.
Barasa who was very loaded during the campaigns used the money he looted from Ketracco to campaign and even funded Azimio la Umoja Western Kenya campaigns.
