Friday May 22, 2015 - Retired President Mwai Kibaki and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga are on the spot yet again after United Nations (UN) lifted a lid on their dirty dealings while in the Grand Coalition Government.
In its report, UN revealed how Kibaki and Raila hired and recruited criminals to help them deal with Somali pirates and later betrayed them to rot in jails abroad.
The UN document claims that Kibaki and Raila hired Mohammed Abdullahi Moalim Aden, alias Tiiceey, a known Somalia criminal, to help them negotiate the release of MV Faina ship with 33 T-72 tanks imported from Ukrain which had been seized by Somalia pirates.
He succeeded and after Kibaki/ Raila paid the ransom money that the pirates had demanded, the ship was released in 2008 plus the cargo.
This comes even as the Kenyan Government maintained that the tanks belonged to South Sudan and that no ransom was paid.
The report further says that after the release of the cargo, the Kenyan Government began to frame Tiiceey for piracy and extortion and had him arrested and jailed in Belgium for piracy and money laundering.
It says the Kenyan Government continued to use criminal networks inside Somalia even after the arrest of Tiiceecy.
