Suna East MP and Raila’s confidant Junet Mohammed’s otherwise hidden vices have come to light after his name featured prominently in claims of grabbing of public land belonging to Posta Kenya along Dar es Salaam Road in Nairobi’s Industrial area.

Investigations revealed that Junet used his links with ODM leader Raila Odinga and his handshake partner retired president Uhuru Kenyatta to pull major scandals including the grabbing of the prime land that is now being fenced.

During Uhuru last days in power, senior government officials in his regime not only ripped the public coffers dry but also grabbed public assets with abandon, and Junet tops the list.

It is also coming to light that the camaraderie between Junet and former Mombasa governor Hassan Joho was revolving around sleaze, grabbing of public land and other vices while shamelessly acting as proxies to Raila Odinga who was then enjoying trappings of power.

It is during this period that a firm linked to Joho’s family lost a battle for land estimated to be worth about Ksh. 6 billion to businessman Francis Mburu. This was after an arbitrator ruled that the property, situated in Jamhuri Estate along Ngong Road in Nairobi, legally belongs to Exclusive Estates Limited which is associated with Mburu.

The decision was a blow to Aftraco Limited, which was also claiming the land that was initially owned by the defunct Kenya Posts and Telecommunication Corporation now Telkom Kenya.

Junet’s name further features prominently in a road construction contract in his constituency. It is said the tender to construct two roads in Suna East was awarded to a firm associated with Junet’s brother by Kenya Rural Roads Authority. The two roads were supposed to be 40 km valued at Sh 7.6 billion but only 3km was done.

It is claimed that Junet also influenced the award of a tender which the government intends to spend Sh 2.9 billion to tarmac the 74km Mbita-Sindo-Magunga-Sori road that connects Homa Bay and Migori counties.

Construction of the road was to start in the last regime, but the contractor abandoned the work over unclear reasons. The contractor is also associated with the Junet’s brother.

President William Ruto relaunched construction of the road last October and contracted China Civil Engineering Construction Cooperation Limited to undertake the work in bit the so-called milestone-base approach.

Despite all these acts coming to light, Junet arrogantly sits unfazed, plotting on the next heists.
