Investigative journalist John Allan Namu has broken his silence after Hashtag #NamuExposesRuto went viral, becoming the number one trending Hashtag following an investigative piece in which he laid bare how DP Ruto’s ally have been winning tenders.
In the piece dubbed ‘The Tenderpreneur Playbook’, Namu delves into the tenderpreneurs’ world, exposing how Mithika Linturi uses a well-orchestrated and questionable scheme to win several government tenders, minting billions in the process.
The plot begins as soon as Jubilee government gets into power with a series of at least 14 companies linked to him and which receive hefty payments running into billions.
Coming not a surprise to his critics, Deputy President William Ruto’s name features severally in the piece whose main focus is Mithika Linturi who is a close ally of the DP.
A description of the piece reads:
“How do you win a public tender? Not as simple as it looks. Our latest investigation shows that the vice chair of the Senate Public Investment Committee has a network of companies that are gaming the procurement system.”
The media personality behind African Uncensored urged Kenyans not to be too quick in believing everything they see on social media and distanced himself from the number one trending Hashtag #NamuExposesRuto saying its sponsored.
“By now we are well aware of paid hashtags. An image of the pinch of salt you need to take these things with” said John Allan Namu.
