Shock as Auditor General, EDWARD OUKO, digs up more dirt on Ruaraka Land scandal-What he discovered may sink even CS MATIANG’I

Tuesday April 2, 2019-Auditor-General Edward Ouko has continued to bring out more dirt in the infamous Ruaraka land scandal.
In his report, Ouko questioned the acquisition the 13.7 acre parcel of Ruaraka land by the Ministry of Education which was then headed by CS Fred Matiang’i.
He questioned the payment of Ksh1.5 billion to businessman Francis Mburu, who claims to be the owner of the land.

I am unable to confirm whether the process of acquisition was procedural and payment of Sh1.5 billion made to the vendor is a proper charge to public funds,” Mr. Ouko stated in his report.

The auditor also questioned the valuation report of the National Lands Commission (NLC) for the two parcels of land which resulted in a variance of ksh6 million that was not explained.
In the report for the financial year ended June 2018 tabled in the National Assembly, the Education Ministry under Matiang’i requested NLC to commence the process leading to the compulsory acquisition of the land.
NLC, in its valuation report, determined the area for acquisition as measuring 6.9 acres for Drive Inn Primary School and 6.7 acres for Ruaraka High School at Ksh206 million per acre which translates to Ksh3, 262,136,690 billion inclusive of 15 percent disturbance allowance.
