Anne Njeri Njoroge, a seasoned businesswoman with over 30 years of experience, revealed details about her Ksh17 billion oil consignment’s delay at the port.
In an interview, she shared interactions with high-profile government officials, specifically from the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA). These officials questioned her about the export license for the oil, shedding light on the complexities surrounding her involvement in the multibillion scandal.

When she allegedly met with Chirchir, she was informed that the fuel belonged to someone else.
While at Chirchir’s office, Njeri claimed that she met with Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi.
“I was told that Sudi was there listen to in on the meeting,” Njeri disclosed.
Njeri also revealed that while she was abducted, she received death threats for claiming ownership of the 100,000 metric tonnes of fuel.
The businesswoman spoke while in hiding as she awaits to appear before the National Assembly. to shed more light on the matter.
“I don’t know what a person with money looks like. It is only God who can lift you up,” she quipped when responding to those questioning her financial capacity.
Meanwhile, her lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, emphasised that she will not present herself to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) before going to Parliament.
“They say she should go to DCI and be released on a Ksh100,000 bail, why didn’t they do that the first time she was there? What if she goes back and is locked up?” he questioned.
Ombeta further poked holes into why Njeri was being castigated despite being the victim who he said lost her consignment.
The Ksh17 billion oil deal has been the talk of the town with CS Chirchir and his Transport counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen being implicated in the saga.
