Kroll Report on Kenyan Corruption, Digest
Read previous article
Mukesh Gohil reveals that by 2002 Gideon Moi's cash in foreign banks amounted to a staggering 550 million British pounds. This is only the money that Gideon had involved him in to transact. It is reported that all Gideon's cash left the country through Citibank.
Mukesh insists that a huge amount of this money is in London.
The Kroll report details a fascinating trip that took place towards the end of former president Moi's last term as president where he visited several banks in Luxembourg in an unmarked ordinary car and without any security or escort. Only one State house aide (who was chief of protocal at the time) accompanied them. And even he was left in waiting rooms as father and son had meetings with their bankers behind closed doors. But it was very clear that the purpose of this trip was to introduce the younger Moi to his bankers.
It is believed that during this trip administration of the Moi fortunes was transferred to Gideon. Investigators are still trying to prove that the monies were transferred around the world in a further effort to make it as diffucult as possible for it to be traced back to the Mois.
Incidentally there is plenty of instances in the Kroll Associates report that suggests that the Mois are not too comfortable at the moment as there are too many people running around with their secrets.
A fight that took place at a popular entertainment spot in Nairobi between Gideon Moi and the family lawyer Dr Kiplagat, emphasizes this. Evidence seems to suggest that the fight was instigated by the sale of US$ 650,000 property in South Africa which Dr Kiplagat facilitated in behalf of the younger Moi. After the sale was complete the lawyer did not hand over the proceeds from the sale but instead prepared an invoice for $US 1.5 million for various legal services rendered to Gideon over a lengthy period of time that was still outstanding. He then issued a credit note for US$650,000 and demanded that the balance owed to him be paid. Gideon was furious.
Interestingly this appears to be a contradiction of his own well-voiced principals. The same Kroll report talks about a frequent boast Gideon makes to the effect that any deals worth less than US$ 1 million is not worth his while.
Since December 2003, Gideon has been trying to get the money from the sale of the South African property from Kiplagat, but with no success. On several occasions he sent Chepkonga to demand the cash on his behalf from the lawyer. So when Chepkonga saw the lawyers car parked outside Fairview Hotel, he immeditaley called Gideon who quickly arrived and headed straight to the table where Dr Kiplagat was seated. A fierce argument ensued with Gideon making his usual threats.
Eyewitnesses said that what triggered the fight was the point where Kiplagat told Gideon; "…your father is no longer the president of this country and the days you used to order people around are long gone." To add insult to injury he then ordered Gideon to move to another table. That is when fists and kicks started flying as baffled onlookers watched and other hurried to separate the two men.
It seems that many previously close aides have fallen out with the Moi's in recent times over similar circumstances and others have just moved on sensing that it isn't that profitable to hang around anymore.
