Businessman Charles Irungu has spilled the beans on how top Nairobi County officials ‘prepare’ documents to defraud the goverment money in shady procurement deals.
Some of the documents forged include certificate of registration for a business, letter heads and voucher receipts, cheques and his signatures.
Irungu, the director of Geoclean Enterprise Limited told the court
that he deals with individuals who give him jobs without giving out any quotations as required by the law.
In his testimony Irungu said that he once fitted blinders-curtains and was paid Sh115,000 in cash.
“I was called by the first accused person, Regina Rotich Chepkemoi at the city hall who asked me to deliver the blinders which I did and was given 115,500 shillings cash,”he said.
He named several top officials in city hall who give him jobs without any quotations without giving them a kick back.
Irungu who was testifying against former County secretary Lilian Ndegwa , chief finance officer Jimmy Kiamba ,Regina Rotich, Stephen Osiro and Nancy Kiruri said that he started supplying stationery at the city hall by introducing himself using his business card and was
given jobs and more jobs.
The defense dismissing his claim labelled Irungu as part of a cartel that is stealing money from the county and never following the procedures passed by the county.
