Mike Sonko mentioned in EACC graft report
Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and suspended Energy CS Davis Chirchir have been accused of corruptly asking for a kickback of $15 million.
The EACC graft report tabled at the Senate on Tuesday claims Sonko and Chirchir were to share the Sh1.39 billion.
The report accuses Chirchir of being the perpetrator of corruption in procurement processes and the awarding of tenders at the ministry.
He is allegedly working to ensure the successful execution of corrupt deals in the energy sector.
“A case in point is where there was an attempt to influence the awarding of a Kenya Pipeline Company tender costing $500million (Sh46.2 billion) to SINOPEC instead of ZAKHEM,” read the report.
It said that the tender was meant to corruptly yield the Sh1.39 billion.
Chirchir is one of five cabinet secretaries directed to step aside for graft investigations after being mentioned in the report.
He stepped aside on March 28 but Sonko has remained mum on the graft list.
