Missing business woman


New information on a Ksh.17 billion gas oil shipment connected to businesswoman Ann Njoroge is revealed by Energy Secretary Davis  Chirchir and KPA Chief Capt. William Ruto.


The contentious importation and ownership of a petroleum consignment valued at Ksh.17 billion has prompted Energy Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir to speak out, while a businesswoman who is in a legal dispute with two oil marketing organizations over the shipment has vanished.


The man who oversaw the planting of trees in Baringo County, Chirchir, has acknowledged that Ann Njoroge, a businesswoman who vanished from view after reportedly making a statement at DCI Headquarters, came to his office asking for assistance.


She alleged that her delivery of 100,000 metric tons of diesel had been berthed at the port of Mombasa from the High Seas without her authorization, and that was just five days before her arrival.


"Hiyo kesi iko kortini Mombasa Although the matter is now in court, we will endeavour to collaborate tujue ukweli iko wapi. I am aware that a woman named Ann visited my office ameenda huko kwa port akasema meli ni yake hiyo meli ilifika kitambo brought in by a business called Galana and it has been dismissed "said Chirchir.


Records that the CS claims to have proved that the shipment is the property of Galana Energies, one of the oil marketing firms that was specifically chosen to provide fuel to the other oil marketers involved in the government-to-government negotiation.


Nonetheless, Chirchir addressed her enigmatic departure after he supposedly told her to go to DCI Headquarters when he was asked for assistance. He attested to the fact that the case is still being looked into.


Anne has been accused of falsifying the paperwork she used to assert possession of the shipment by the Kenya Ports Authority administration, who were accused on Sunday of unloading some of the goods.


During a news conference led by Board Chairperson Benjamin Tayari and KPA Managing Director Captain William Ruto, the management declared that Galana Energies Limited possessed the authentic importation paperwork.


The Managing Director of KPA, Capt. William Ruto, stated: "Ile bill of lading amesema ni yake na ndio hii na ndio ukweli, bill of lading imekuwa signed na shipper kuwa ni yeye, carrier ni yeye things that cannot add up."


Contrary to Ann Njoroge's alleged 100,000 metric tons of fuel, KPA claims that documents in their hands demonstrate that the vessel was carrying 93,460 metric tonnes of gas oil.


At Yanbu - Samref port, the gas oil was loaded on September 26 and 28, and then the vessel sailed for Jeddah harbour


KPA reports that the ship left for Mombasa on September 30.


The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum named Aramco Trading Fujairah as the shipper, and KPA further states that of the 93,490 metric tonnes of gasoil that were manifested, 49,091 metric tonnes were intended for Kenya.


44,368 metric tons of the remaining cargo were en route to neighbouring nations such as South Sudan, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

According to KPA, there are no records identifying Ann's Import and Export Enterprises Limited as the cargo's owner.

As they pointed out discrepancies in the paperwork, KPA questioned the businesswoman's assertions that the ship was loaded in Jeddah and came from the Azerbaijan Republic.

According to the authority, the package originated in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia, according to the aperwork they possessed.

Another point of contention is the loading date; according to Ann, it was on October 9th, but the ship did not arrive in Mombasa until October 11th.


They have also questioned the lack of the vessel's master's signature on the bill of lading.


Ann Njoroge, a businesswoman with thirty-three years of experience in the oil importation sector, vanished two months ago, only two months after Rai Group Chairman Jaswant Rai was kidnapped inexplicably and freed three days later.


Even though later events indicated that disputes in the sugar industry were still going on, Rai's kidnapping is still unsolved.
