That someone would have the guts to shortchange President Uhuru Kenyatta himself is taking the daring game too far.
Mystery surrounds the disappearance of more than half of the foodstuffs donated by the president to the Muslim community last week.
According to delivery receipts signed by a director at the Directorate of Special Programmes, the donations were delivered in two vehicles that ferried 200 bags of rice, 200 bags of beans and 50 cartons of cooking oil.
The first truck, registration number GKB 012B, delivered 100 bags of 50kg rice, 100 bags of 50kg beans and 50 cartons of 24 containers of cooking oil, which were released by a depot manager at the National Cereals and Produce Board. The second vehicle, registration number GKB 805G, delivered 100 bags of 50kg rice and 100 bags of 50kg beans.“We were surprised to receive just less than half of what the President announced in public,” a Muslim cleric who was in State House revealed.
State House has since claimed it was not aware of the shortfall and promised to launch investigations to establish the whereabouts of the remaining goods.
“We expect that once the President officially flags off goods, they must be delivered in totality. Now that you have brought it to our attention, we are going to conduct an inquiry to establish the truth,” State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena told the media.
