NTV investigative reporter Dennis Okari was on Tuesday, 25th Aug offered Ksh 500,000 by Kimili Member of Parliament, Didmus Barasa following his COVID-19 corruption millionaires expose.
The lawmaker revealed that the money will be used to cater for the legal fee and other expenses after Megascope CEO, Richard Ngatia moved to court to challenge Okari’s COVID-19 corruption expose. Ngatia claimed that Okari relied on statements from unreliable sources.
The Kimilili MP hailed Okari’s investigative piece, asserting that, after the expose, the number of COVID-19 cases have drastically reduced in the country.
“Because of his exposé we have seen the numbers dropping from 600’s to 100’s, it means that he has foiled the business that was benefiting from the numbers going up. I will send the money to him because I’m told some people have sued him so I want to lead Kenyans in standing with Okari for exposing the Covid-19 millionaires,” he said.
Barasa also said that he will get in touch with Okari’s lawyer and make sure that the money is transferred to him this coming Thursday.
“I am informed that these people, after selling all the donated PPEs, they may have resorted to manufacturing contraband PPEs to sell.
