Kenya charges government officials with graft

A Kenyan court on Tuesday charged the former head of the state-run Geothermal Development Company and other senior executives with abuse of office arising from the award of a contract for transporting drilling rigs.

Former managing director Silas Simiyu and eight others charged with him for abuse of office responded “It is not true” when their charges were read out to them by a court clerk.

Kenya’s chief prosecutor, Keriako Tobiko, on Friday authorised the prosecution of Simiyu and others on accusations of irregular award of a contract for moving the company’s drilling rigs to private-owned company Bonfide Clearing and Forwarding company in the financial year 2012/13 (July-June).  Read more
