Ksh. 165,587,200 were paid to various companies for motor vehicles supply.
Ksh. 105, 000,000 worth of expenditure was charged on a general expense without documents that approve the allocation.
Ksh. 22,324,851 worth of goods were purchased by various State Houses and Lodges. They were procured and received in Nairobi then delivered to various stations.
The goods purchased under a report done during the January and February 2017 shows that the goods purchased were never received and no records kept to prove the same.
Ksh. 61,537,194 worth of bills had no invoices, delivery notes, contract documents, and Local Purchase Orders to support their acquisition.
Although the presidency disclosed a summary of fixed assets acquired in 2014-2015 and 2015-2016, an assets register had not been maintained which is contrary to Regulation 143 of the Public Finance Management (National Government) Regulations, 2015.
These payments indicate that they were not posted as verified in the Verification of the IFMIS ledger. there is also the indication that there could be unexplained cash withdrawals.
Kenyatta has on several occasions stated that he wants his legacy to be that of winning the war on graft, however, this latest discovery will put a dent on the fight against corruption.
