Ex-CS Echesa quizzed over Sh40 billion fake military tender - VIDEO

What you need to know:

  • It started with Kenyan contacts reaching out to the Poland-based company for supply of equipment worth Sh400 billion. A deal too good to pass by.
  • The officials started correspondence with their local contacts.
  • They met a military ‘general’ with a swagger stick and who was driven in escorts and top-of-the-range vehicles.
  • That they walked into the DP’s office mingling with staffers and security detail made the deal look real.

The alleged scam reads like a Hollywood script. Sh40 billion is the tender. Sh11.5 million is the initial consultancy fee and, after the deal is struck, a further Sh50 million was to be paid.
