DCI are investigating Sh. 6 Billion from the Kenya Ports Authority that cannot be traced from the parastatal accounts. 

The transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia raised a red flag over the plunder that has been going for a year at the KPA. 

CS Macharia wrote a letter to the DCI boss George Kinoti over the reports he got from his auditors that money laundering and siphoning is extreme at the port.

However, a week later, on August 29, Mr. Kinoti wrote back to the CS complaining that the investigations were being frustrated by top port officials. 

Mr. Kinoti urged the CS to take administrative measures that will see top KPA officials kicked out of office since they are suspected of hoarding documents and intimidating potential witnesses.

To be specific, Mr. Kinoti singled out KPA managing director Daniel Manduku, who has frustrated investigations at the port by holding crucial documents and hindering his officers.

Sh. 2.5 billion was allocated for the expansion and construction of Kisumu port but none has been done despite money paid to the contractors as stated.

Sh. 1.5 billion allocated for KPA expansion as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta this year cannot be traced too.

The KPA top management is said to have been siphoning cash from the parastatal despite efforts done to modernize the facility.
