CS Rebecca Miano Under Fire for Alleged Lies About Road Contract

CS Rebecca

The Trade Cabinet Secretary, Rebecca Miano, is currently facing scrutiny after falsely attempting to take credit for a tender that she claimed was awarded to a Kenyan company, ultimately misleading many individuals.

“Did you know that Africa has only 1 million kilometers of tarmac roads out of a possible 30 million kilometers? That is why I am elated today to have launched a project where a Kenyan Company has been awarded a contract to construct a 250 kilometer road linking Antananarivo to Toamasina in Madagascar.” She posted on X.

She went further to say how Kenya is advancing towards being a regional giant, “Kenya is now exporting its services, expertise, technology and equipment to contribute to Africa economic integration through Infrastructure development. Kudos Kenya.”

However, sharp eyed Kenyans had noticed she deliberately left out the name of the firm in question.

Turns out she was referring to Gabeire A Group (GAG) Construction Company which is not Kenyan but a Poland based Somali owned firm Somalia Construction & Consultancy Company (SOMALKO). There’s little to nothing about the company from their website which appears to have lasted years without any update.

“Waziri, Kirinyaga Construction?” Lawyer Ahmednasir who is privy to the details had sarcastically questioned the CS’s cryptic post.

Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai also claimed the company in question is involved in shady deals, “Just registered in Kenya but owners are not Kenyans. I know Kamala and team. Conmen who even construct houses beacon to beacon without approval in Kileleshwa. Hebu be truthful.” He said in response to Ms Miano’s assertion.

“This company as we know as WE all know is a Somali company. For the CS of trade you are being convenient with the truth. Also you are announcing something they have not announced and would rather NOT reveal. Unless of course they have no problem showing us their tax returns.” Joseph Kimutawi posed.

The CS has in the recent past been going through negative publicity including a survey that ranked her among the worst performing cabinet secretaries in president William Ruto’s administration and a petition in court against her for corruption.
