Outspoken city lawyer has been mentioned as one of the many lawyers who benefitted from a Sh 313 million scandal at the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB).
Ahmednasir, who is the chairman of the senior counsel committee, was mentioned as one of the lawyers who were paid huge sums of money from the board’s coffers.
Despite doing little work for NCPB, the loudmouthed lawyer was paid Sh 40 million.
“Farmers have suffered lack of payment for maize supplied to NCPB, what they don’t know is that a lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi who loves to pontificate, wearing a holier than thou mask is, in fact, the one siphoning gov’t funds meant to pay farmers,” Kenneth Ojuok, a Twitterati, said.
Others who received the money in the Sh 313 million scam were Sirisia MP, Waluke (Sh 50 million), Businesswoman Grace Wakhungu (Sh 40 million), former Deputy Chief Justice Nancy Barasa (Sh 5 million) and an unknown person (Sh 117 million).
On Thursday, Milimani Law Courts Magistrate, Elizabeth Juma, found Waluke and Wakhungu guilty of defrauding NCPB.
The Magistrate fined Major Waluke and Wakhungu Sh 707 million who in default will serve seven years imprisonment each.
