26 August 2019: Uhuru latest

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told senior Kenya Ports Authority officials named in the Sh40 billion Kipevu oil terminal scandal to carry their own crosses.

Mr Kenyatta said the officials should be ready to deal with the consequences of their misdeeds when Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and their teams come calling.

“I want to tell them that there are people who have committed themselves to fighting corruption as a matter of life and death,” the President said Monday.

“Please, do not say it was me. I have not sent anyone to steal. Those guys are not playing.”

“We know the amount that we have spent and the one you intended to spend on that project. We are monitoring the situation and watching you,” he said.

“We know the shoddy deals that you are involved in and the delays that you are staging for your own gains.”
