Night drama at JKIA as Murathe allegedly blocked trying to flee with family- daughter forced to board alone

In what is expected to go down as one of the most dramatic episodes to unfold since the swearing in of  President William Ruto, It is now emerging that former Jubilee Vice-chair David Murathe was caught apparently trying to flee the country.

In a tweet by Stephen Mutoro, boss of Consumers Federation of Kenya, he hinted that all this may be in connection to the infamous KEMSA scandal. His tweet read,

The shoe is in the other foot, quite literally, for bigger-than-life David Murathe as his freedom of movement becomes limited by GoK – #JKIA #KEMSA  
So far there has been no word or official communication from either Mr. Murathe himself or the relevant authorities.

“I am aware that the commitment letter by KEMSA to Kilig was cancelled citing limited budget for Covid-19 which had been exhausted thereby resulting in no delivery, invoicing nor payment for me to guarantee because there was no initiation of a procurement process after the cancellation of the procurement letter,” Murathe had testified in the past.

The commitment letter had been cancelled following queries on its legality. Suspended Kemsa Finance Director Charles Juma had, in a previous sitting, claimed that he flagged the Sh4 billion deal.

Murathe was listed as a mandatory signatory on Kilig’s Equity Bank account after he agreed to stand in as a guarantor.

MPs also took issue with remarks that Murathe made on a vernacular TV that he would “teach the MPs a lesson” when he honours the summons.

“That is the highest level of arrogance,” said an aggrieved MP.

Murathe who was expected to appear before PIC on Thursday the following week as the committee finalised its public hearings nevertheless didn’t cause any drama.

In September last year, the Jubilee vice-chair was summoned by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over his links to the company, which he dismissed.

Kilig Limited was formed in January last year by co-directors Gatei and Zhu Jinping. The two resigned and transferred their shares to Collins Bush Wanjala, who later handed them to Ivy Minyow Onyango in May.
