Kenya Pipeline Managing Director Joe Sang was due to be fired yesterday, Tuesday 27th of November, we can confirm.
Reliable sources at the petroleum ministry confirmed to us that Sang’s dismissal letter had been sanctioned by Principal Secretary Andrew Kamau and was supposed to be issued to embattled Sang by none other than KPC Board Chairman John Ngumi.
Our source further confirmed that a replacement for Sang with a Kikuyu would be announced almost immediately to head the oil distribution company on temporary acting capacity as the board embarks on a comprehensive recruitment process that would confirm the acting fella.
John Ngumi, who is wanted by the Tanzania authorities has been leaking stories to media, which is working for Principal Secretary Andrew Kamau in order for their man to be put at the helm. The plan was to leak many stories, stir the public’s emotions hence fire Sang.
But it remains a mystery as to why the Chairman John Ngumi would want to remove Joe Sang and leave himself out. John Ngumi was linked to the Ksh 1.8 Billion Kisumu Oil Jetty Scam.
Mr. Ngumi had convened a board meeting on Tuesday morning with the aim of getting the nod to suspend the management team over the Ksh.1 billion ‘spilt’ fuel theft scandal.
Only five of the board members are reported to have showed up meaning there was no quorum required for any decision making. A quorum requires six board members.
This forced Mr. Ngumi to postpone the vote to next week. An intensive succession war was already underway as PS Kamau swears that he must remove Joe Sang and is using John Ngumi whom he will dump after doing his hit job.
