The National Chairman of the National Reconstruction Alliance Party (NRA), Fredrick Ojiambo has written to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission asking them to investigate the alleged withdrawal of funds from the Party’s Account by its Vice Chairman Danstun Riziki, Secretary General Paula Amemba and the Chief Executive Officer Bridgit without the approval of other officials including the Treasurer and the Chairman.
In a letter dated 30th November 2022 and duly stamped as recieved by EACC, the chairman said, ” as the National Chairperson of NRA Party I write to you seeking for your urgent intervention on this matter”.
“The Account had five signatories but the three took the advantage of ‘Any three’ to sign option and went ahead to withdraw close to Ksh1.6m without my knowledge prompting me to put a caveat’, he added.
At the same time, the chairman also wrote another letter to the Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu asking her to review Party records saying that he had come across crucial information suggesting that the same officials had written to the Registrar purporting to effect some changes on the office bearers without the consent of Party officials including himself.
“I humbly request that you dismiss any attempts by these selfish individuals who have resorted to conduct the activities of the Party with total disregard of the Law by attempting to impose people as officials through back door”.
Ojiambo also went ahead to claim that the two officials had nominated an MCA to the County Assembly of Busia called Mercy Wanyonyi without following due process as they opted to lockout other officials including himself from the entire process.
“I therefore want to request that you review the list of Party officials to ascertain whether there could be any changes that had already taken place so that you may revoke them”, Ojiambo reiterated.
He said that the Party has not held any meeting or AGM for anyone to purport to make any changes on the office bearers hence anything to that effect must be declares null and void.
“On behalf of the Party, I want to affirm that we have written a letter to EACC asking them to investigate and bring to book three officials who withdrew money from the Party’s Account without the knowledge of neither the Chairman, Treasurer nor members”, he said.
