How Former Boss 'Conned' Kenya Power Out of Millions

A Jersey court has revealed details of how former Kenya Power managing director, Samuel Gichuru and former cabinet minister Chris Okemo allegedly hid the loot from ghost power projects, detailing a complex web of foreign companies which allegedly openly paid bribes to Jersey Islands accounts belonging to the two. Court records show that on different dates between 1986 and 2002 Gichuru's company received payments of millions from various companies contracted by Kenya Power. A Nairobi court has granted bail to 14 senior managers accused of abuse of office.
