Joe Sang the Kenya pipeline managing director a very close ally to DP William Ruto was sent to packing by a state house officials.
Joe sang who said he will never seek another term as Kenya Pipeline Managing Director after the company incurred a multimillion shillings loss over spillage.
Joe Sang is said to have been frequenting DP’s offices at Harambee House Annex and his Karen residence sets to not to seek another term. It is not clear whether the State House had instructions from president Kenyatta on issuing the sticking point. Sang readily accepted and handed in his resignation letter to the board.
After his resignation, the board immediately invited the DCI to investigate a number of issues and the cause of the loss. The board also announced that it will undertake a forensic audit on major controversial projects.
The chairman John Ngumi on Tuesday held a special meeting with the board and decided to invite the DCI to probe the loss of 11 million liters of fuel under Sang’s watch.
In a previous explanation, the management claimed that 11,646 million liters of fuel were lost, through spillage of 5,956 million liters and pilferage of 5.69 million others, between March 2017 and May 2018.
An industry insider said, “The issue is not whether the contract allows KPC leakage of 0.25 percent of fuel transported. The issue is whether that fuel was genuinely lost, or whether it was siphoned off.”
