Thieves in the Temple
Over the weekend, Kobil Oil took over the management of 3 fuel stations owned by retired President Daniel arap Moi that had been making losses for several years – and also replaced managers, security and other staff. I hear this sad tale is actually a reflection of many of his businesses, schools, and farms where his own employees have been robbing him blind for many years through phoney billing, unnecessary purchases and repairs and outright theft of property. It is said that farmers around Kabarak don’t have to buy supplies in town, as they simply buy off seed and fertilizer cheaply from his farm managers and workers that is meant for his crops.
