THE newly elected director of the Kenya Planters' Co-operative Union in Meru has said the incumbent national board will seek explanations from the former Cooperatives minister Joseph Nyaga and the outgoing interim committee over misuse of the union's facilities and corruption.
Watson Kimathi, who was the former national chairman before 2009, said the mechanism used to pay the receiver managers of the union a Sh700 million debt was unprocedural.
He said it was wrong since they claimed to discount it to Sh400 million yet they have been receiving Sh100 million every year since 2009.
Harveen Gadhoke and Daniel Mutisya Ndonye were appointed receivers and managers of the union on October 19, 2009 by the debenture holder which is the Kenya Commercial Bank.
"There are many things that have been done underground since the receiver managers came. Of the total amount that they demanded, they can now only claim Sh100 million since they have been receiving Sh100 million every year since 2009," Kimathi said.
He said machines worth more than Sh700 million were stolen during the term of the receiver managers and the interim committee appointed by the then Nyaga.
Kimani said the theft raises eyebrows as to how much money has been misused.
He was speaking at the KPCU grounds in Meru.
