Rumor has it: Bank involved in this story is Victoria Bank and this company “Among the accounts examined is one belonging to a company that had evaded Value Added Tax to the tune of Sh247 million while no opening forms were found for an individual’s account with a turnover of Sh2.186 billion” is Nakumatt. Sources suggest that this is definitely why Mullei went down…Kenyan politics dirty as ever.
Update: I thought the reason that Nation (and most people who know the details of the story) are being cautious is because of Harun Mwau’s role, but I guess that is no longer a concern. Hat tip Bankelele! Harun Mwau has a history of filing (and winning) huge defamation lawsuits and he is considered pretty much untouchable in the country because of his deep pockets/connections and because many, many, many, people have been on his gravy train for a while. According to the grapevine, Nakumatt has been laundering his money for ages.
AOB: What’s exciting Kenyans = this , what’s making us yawn = this, this, this, this, this etc. Who isn’t running for president? Can’t ODM just disband now? Besides I think Kibaki has demonstrated that the country can run on auto pilot.
