Senior Managers from the Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA) have been summoned to appear before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) today the 24th August 2020. The letters summoning the officials indicate that the “Serious Crime Unit- Cybercrime Investigations, is investigating a case of conspiracy to defraud” and that the summoning officer has reasons to believe that the officials summoned are “connected to the offence or have information which can assist in investigations”

Those summoned are Lerionka Tiampati (CEO), Simeon Rugut (Finance), Lincoln Munyao (Audit), Brown Kanampiu (Procurement) and Dr. John Omanga (Legal).

KTDA has however insisted it is a private company and Kinoti and others pursuing it should know that it only answers to its shareholders. Agriculture CS Peter Munya addressing a parliamentary committee insisted that KTDA is a public company saying it was a parastatal before it was handed over to farmers.
