South C MCA Abbas Khalifs’ Fraudulent Dealings at Cityhall Dent Majority Leader Post

Nairobi South C Mca Abbas khalifs chances of becoming Nairobi majority leader could be in jeopardy after a section of Azimio MCAs accused him over his integrity issue.

The Mcas now claims that Abbas doesn’t fit the docket of majority leader citing integrity issues with him and further saying he’s using his deep pockets to buy himself through.

”He doesn’t meet the integrity threshold of ODM to occupy such a high seat that needs clean hands and strong heart to battle given that UDA has the governorship. Azimio needs a ruthless leader with untainted image and high level of integrity to check Governor Sakaja.” an MCA who sought anonymity said.

Abbas name was adversely mentioned in the controversial awarding of garbage collection contract garbage collection contract by Kidero to his firm Creative Consolidated.

Abbas had supported Kidero during his campaigns.

The businessman who’s a son to Sheikh Khalifa of Diamond Wholesalers, who was also the biggest distributor of Mumias sugar during Kidero’s time in the firm, has the wide web of friendship with then city governor to thank for the ‘blessings’.

In 2020, the Financial Reporting Centre (FRC) unearthed a multibillion procurement fraud at the Nairobi County government involving several companies and at least eight county staff.

The suspect at the centre of the suspected fraud was identified as Yunis Ibrahim Khalif in a scheme that involved tenders on garbage collection where street children were listed as the beneficiaries.

Other contracts, according to the FRC, involve the supply of Covid-19 kits and road construction tenders.

The suspects were being investigated on allegations of abuse of office, embezzlement, and violation of procurement laws.

One of the companies, Flexilease Limited, which received Sh1.1 billion from City Hall is linked to Khalif, according to the documents.

The Mcas have now called upon ODM party leader Raila Odinga to ignore Abbas name on the list and reconsider another loyal ODM Mca who has no integrity issues to be the majority leader.
