Barely three months after being appointed by president Uhuru as a board member of the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA), Charles Njagua aka Jaguar has maintained that he will resign if the massive corruption at the drug authority is not curtailed.
Jaguar, who was speaking at a press conference at NACADA offices yesterday, linked board members and the finance committee in a corruption cartel in the parastatal and asked the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and Directorate of Criminal Investigations to probe the matter.
“I have noticed various irregularities as a member of the NACADA board but when I reported to the board I was informed that the mode of operation is either to quit or turn a blind eye and be part of it,” he said.
The celebrated artist also blamed the management for making decisions without involving the board.
CORRUPTION AT NACADA: SH500 MILLION EMBEZZLED
According to Jaguar, there is a withdrawal of Sh500 million that was done by some board members without consultations or getting an approval from all the board members.
He further alleged that there are fraudulent payments that are being paid to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) whose finance records do not reflect what the groups received.
If no action will be taken in two weeks, I will have no option but to resign. I cannot be part of these corruption cartels at NACADA,” he said.
