Concerned stakeholders have raised the alarm after disgraced Sports PS Joe Okudo appeared in the list of notable figures who are shortlisted by the public service commission for the principal Secretary position.
Over the past few months, PS Okudo’s name has invariably appeared on this blog as we set to unearth an audacious looting racket at the Sports, Arts and Social Development Fund (SASDF).

Under the stewardship of CS Amina Mohamed, greedy senior officials within the ministry headed by Cabinet Secretary (CS) Amina Mohamed have converted the fund into a cash cow.
Multiple sources informed us that PS Okudo and his clique were the ones responsible for the siphoning of funds through well-orchestrated schemes, as reported by the Auditor General.
As a Principal Secretary, Okudo acts as the fund’s administrator, which means that any kind of theft has to be done with his full knowledge and blessings.
This includes controversial projects like the National Olympic Committee building on Kenya road, in which they made a huge killing alongside his major accomplice, Acting CEO Mark Wambugu.
Kenyan sports has been run down, by the drunk PS Okudo and his team of Judo officials led by Maluki.
We have reported in the past about the corruption that this team has been running at the Sports Ministry and Sports fund.
We reported the theft of public money, that they were using to buy back the position of PS Sports.
In the list released by the Public Service Commission, PS Okudo is listed as number 241.
This is the person who mistreated and took advantage of the athletics team in Oregon.
We now want to question the DCI and EACC, why this special cow, who – if Kenyans have forgotten – his sister displayed this trade of stealing during the counting of votes at Bomas.
Okudo should not be allowed anywhere near any Government office.
Why steal Government money so that you can use the same money to buy back your position?
This is now a big joke, and it’s state capture or corruption capture,” the source writes.
The endemic graft at the Sports Ministry has come at the unfortunate expense of workers and contractors.
For the past year, none of them has received their dues despite supplying items as agreed.
This has left many of them suffering at the hands of merciless banks where they secured loans with the hopes of paying back with the proceeds from the signed deal.
On the other hand, senior executives at SASDF continue to live posh lives, with most said to be running multiple personal construction projects with the stolen cash.
To ensure the rot never sees the light of day, the cabal has pocketed most mainstream journalists and editors with fat brown envelopes and flimsy appointments into various committees at the Sports Ministry.
Ever since they were awarded these favours, all scandals relating to the ministry have been swept under the carpet.
