Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, has dismissed the suspension of operations at his Foundation by the NGO Coordination Board over unaccounted Sh146 million donor funds, instead describing it as a plan orchestrated by his political rivals to spoil his name.
The National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential running mate accused Deputy President William Ruto of using the NGO Board to frustrate him.
“If Jubilee has an enemy, it is this person because Kenyans can see through this victimization, political persecution. We have not been served with any court order; you cannot freeze accounts with no court order and even the money there is not a lot. This is terrible,” stated Mr Musyoka.
In response to the claims against Ruto, the DP’s office issued a statement indicated that Musyoka’s political frustrations are clear for all to see.
“The Deputy President is too busy to waste time on such things. However, we know Musyoka’s statement is meant to serve some political interests.
He produced a letter from the Board dated April 10 which gave the Foundation a clean bill of health and stressed that the Foundation had never handled the purported amount of money.
“We have reviewed your submissions in response to the above-mentioned compliance notice namely, submissions towards regularisation of bank accounts held and operated under the Kalonzo Musyoka Foundation, board minutes, bank account numbers and signatories to these accounts,” the letter signed by NGO Board Executive Director Fazul Mohamed stated.
“Our records have thus been duly updated. We, therefore, wish to inform you that the Kalonzo Musyoka Foundation is now compliant with the NGOs Coordination Act 1990, the attendant regulations and terms and conditions of registration,” the NGO Board noted.
The Board’s Executive Director Fazul Mahamed dissolved the entire Board of Directors of the Foundation on Tuesday and ordered the fund accounts frozen.
