Businesswoman Anne Njeri Njoroge reveals high-profile state officials she met when her Ksh17 billion oil consignment was held at the port.
Speaking in an interview with Citizen TV on Sunday from her hideout, Njeri who is embroiled in the multibillion fuel saga explained that she had been in the business for over 30 years.
Njeri’s account states that she met with representatives of the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), who asked if she was licensed to import the oil.
It was at this point she was directed to meet with Energy Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir.
She claimed to have been told that the fuel belonged to someone else when she met with Chirchir.
The meeting with CS Chirchir was triggered by the dispute over ownership of the consignment and more influential individuals were drawn into the conversation.
While at Chirchir’s office, Njeri claimed that she met with Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi.
“I was told that Sudi was there listen to in on the meeting and send feedback to the ‘high office’,” Njeri disclosed.
Njeri also revealed that while she was abducted, she received death threats for claiming ownership of the 100,000 metric tonnes of fuel.
The businesswoman spoke while in hiding as she awaits to appear before the National Assembly to shed more light on the matter.
“I don’t know what a person with money looks like. It is only God who can lift you up,” she quipped when responding to those questioning her financial capacity.
Ann Njoroge who denies any oil importation dealings with both President William Ruto and former president Uhuru Kenyatta during his 33 years in oil entrepreneurship, says she will not bow down but soldier on in a bid to get Justice & compensation for her 100,000 metric tonnes worth of fuel.
Meanwhile, her lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, emphasized that she will not present herself to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) before going to Parliament.
“They say she should go to DCI and be released on a Ksh100,000 bail, why didn’t they do that the first time she was there? What if she goes back and is locked up?” he questioned.
Ombeta further poked holes into why Njeri was being castigated despite being the victim who he said lost her consignment.
The Ksh17 billion oil deal has been the talk of the town with CS Chirchir and his Transport counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen being implicated in the saga.
