Unabated corruption and looting at the county government of Homa Bay has flourished over the years – thanks to the stout centre that has seen its flawless execution under the protection of top management of Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commissions, which has now been shaken.
The man behind the money minting racket where Homa Bay has lost billions of shillings is none other Nicholas Koriko.
To start with, Koriko who is currently under the hawk eyed-radar of Directorate of Criminal Investigation and National Intelligence Service is a quiet character with a telltale background on matters political, administrative, wealth and remains unpredictable, most misunderstood as well as mysterious in his operations as his dangerous cards remain under the table from where they surface clandestinely.
He has been linked to mysterious deaths and burning of county offices that store confidential documents to conceal evidence.
The reappointment of Koriko to finance and economic planning, a self-declared HIV positive in the County government of Homa Bay has shocked Homa Bay residents and political pundits in equal measure.
Members of the Bunge La Wenyenchi claim that putting Koriko to finance is as cancerous as exposing part of a human body that is cancer embedded through surgery adding that it will spread like a bush fire and consume the county into ashes unless county assembly of Homa Bay asserts its authority and deletes Koriko’s name from the cabinet.
Koriko’s proposed appointment has come at time EACC is investigating the loss of Sh5 billion, burning of the finance and procurement offices by the cartels. EACC asset tracers are also narrowing down on three treasury officials of the county.
One of the management experts who worked closely with Awiti but has now broken ranks with him following massive looting and complete failure on service delivery stated that, the governor has demonstrated that he suffers from memory lapse by reappointing Koriko back to the very docket which he is the founder executive member who presided over ripoff in three financial years due to Koriko’s outright incompetence, ignorance and lethal corrupt mind sharpened by the cartels most of whom worked with the defunct local authorities and former provincial administration as accountant, cashier, treasurer etc.
Koriko’s whose actual wealth can be seen in the kingdom of his newfound love Mercy Koriko who works at Ecobank, Kisumu branch, executed knowingly, various theft, looting and ripoffs in 2013/2014, 2014/2015, 2015/2016 in which taxpayers lost Sh112million for Kadongo-Gendia road to a fictitious company, Oasis International, the disappearance of Sh645 million Rapid Results Initiative of the supplementary budget of March 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Several shady deals and transactions between the county government and Central Bank through suspense bank accounts in some local banks in Homa Bay town hide the stinking dossier which the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission officers in the region have converted into a cashcow.
The intervention by DCI under George Kinoti is a Godsend opportunity for the county citizens to see justice over massive plundering.
A chief officer was overheard expressing deep fears that their kingdom is destined to crumble.
“Even as you hear DCI is demanding these documents, it is going to be a tall order for Koriko to avail them since Mubea was paid handsomely to kill the case and we were consequently advised to destroy the documents,” a staf member.
The softspoken chief officer who is equally under investigation by EACC on his former and current dockets is now blaming Koriko for overdoing his dirty work after he engineered a strategy that incapacitated the governor completely after he was asked to explain whose account it was the Sh1.2 billion that was channeled to departments was banked in.
Drama as ex-minister Nyachae daughter strips naked in public – Weekly Citizen
A perplexing drama ensued at a city high-end bar in Nairobi when a drunken daughter of a former powerful cabinet minister Simeon Nyachae stripped herself naked.
The chairperson of the women business Kenya chamber of commerce and industry Mary Nyachae braved barrage of abuses from other patrons who were not amused by her behavior.
But instead of expressing remorse, the boastful woman arrogantly reminded her accuses that she was untouchable individual from one of the richest family in Kenya.
What surprised many was when the evidently intoxicated woman told the irked customers and pub attendants to stop getting concerned with her action since after all she was wearing a non offensive white pant.
Her father Nyachae was among a group of prominent investors who held shares in the former CBA Group with 8.6 million shares worth about sh300 million.
She is also a sister to former Constitution of Implementation Commission (CIC) Chair Charles Nyachae.
Charles Nyachae is now a judge at the East African Court of Justice after President Uhuru Kenyatta nominated him following failure to clinch a position in the East Africa Legislative Assembly
Plot to have Mariga defect to ODM – Weekly Citizen
The family of former soccer maestro MacDonald Mariga now wants him to defect from Jubilee deputy president William Ruto’s faction to Raila Odinga led ODM party.
Apart from the family, his supporters are also pressuring him Ruto after a blistering defeat in the recently held Kibra by-election.

Since the introduction of multi-party politics, the seat has been in hands of Luos as Mps.
The Luhya voters in Kibra want 2022 to be a payback time and to them Mariga being a Luhya must be fronted by ODM.
How top officials loot Afya Sacco – Weekly Citizen
The giant Afya Cooperative Savings and Credit (Sacco) Society’s General Manager and deputy chief executive officer (CEO) Livingstone Sakwa was bundled into indefinite compulsory leave before being sacked after looting hundreds of millions from the society.
Another worst aspect of the emerging scenario is the fact that Sakwa apart from looting the Sacco also took un-secured loans worth hundreds of millions of shillings that he refused to service despite persistent implorations by the board.
The multi-billion shillings Sacco that posted accumulated assets worth more than sh17 billion as at the last financial year-its central management committee (CMC) met immediately after the Sacco’s annual delegates conference (ADC) on April 27 chaired by the chairman Vitalis Lukiri to deliberate on the Sacco’s board of management.
It has emerged that though the entire top management team was on the firing line, right from the chief executive officer Felix Ndoi, his deputy Sakwa and the risk control manager Wycliffe Mwuoria from Meru had to get the first devastating blow before further action is taken on others involved in the scam.
The general manager Sakwa is reported to have presided over the looting of millions of shillings from the society not only for himself but also an inner circle in cahoots with his cronies with his outer circle of close buddies it is estimated that the Sacco lost more than sh500 million.
Though in charge of administration and human resource management at the Sacco, inside sources revealed to the media that Sakwa was a harsh, arrogant, vindictive, un-professional, greedy, high handed, abusive, salacious and an outright ‘’a gutter rat’’.
That though having joined the Sacco in a relatively shorter period of time compared to the other managers, Sakwa had a meteoric rise from scratches to living in the skies where other individuals apart from himself matter.
A senior management official who declined to be named said: ‘’ This character is not just a predator at pilfering, swiping, grabbing, stealing, crude and sophisticated financial fraud, and hoarding the loot but is also worse on the female staff-right from the management to the junior levels’’.
The official said that Sakwa to the Sacco members of staff was a worse terror in the office than Alshabaab or al Qaeda through which he has personally been able to systematically and ruthlessly steal from the society more than sh 550 million as he terrorized the staff to do his bidding or face the sack.
He accused Sakwa of being a man who used his position to get what he wanted right from the skirts in the office all the way to the Sacco’s bank accounts to do is bidding to feed his insatiable greed for both cash and sex.
Though a new comer at the Sacco’s top management level, our source divulging that the man from western Kenya had superseded all the top managers including his boss Felix Ndoi in the rapid accumulation and show of massive wealth including even members of the CMC who employed him in the first place and have been steering the Afya Sacco for decades-today they have nothing to show against Sakwa’s booty.
He said that the biggest irony of the whole business is that the blundering buffoon was brought to Afya Sacco through the influence of Chairman Lukiri who also comes from western Kenya whereas Sakwa comes from Kakamega County-Lukiri comes from the neighbouring Busia county.
‘’This is a matter that virtually everybody in the office cringed and scrivened before him because they thought they were seeing the power and force of the CMC crowned with that of Lukiri-Afya Sacco had become a fiefdom for Sakwa just Germany was for Adolf Hitler before and during the second world war,’’ the source said.
From the proceeds of the loot Sakwa has reportedly built an empire in properties right from the estate of limousines that include Mercedes Benz, prado, pajeros and colonies of muilti-billion shillings real estate properties.
It has emerged that because his chairman does not frequent high class highly expensive dens, Sakwa becomes more the President of the Republic of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta in financial, business in the country.
The estate properties stretch from the most affluent residential estates of Nairobi, its neighbouring Rongai in Kajiado county and Kakamega, Nakuru, Eldoret crowned by all manner of public service vehicles cruising the city and up-country routes.
Socially right from Nairobi city all the way to Kajiado’s Ongata Rongai town, Karen, and up-country, Sakwa, a character who splashes his wealth by taking control of the bar rooms and all services and pays in hard cash-American dollars, the British sterling pounds, the Canadian dollar-crowned by the lousy Kenyan shillings.
