In government business, there is no brokerage business. When the government takes up insurance, it does take it directly from the companies and so doesn’t have to deal with brokers.
In a unique case at CIC insurance, a total of Ksh 350million was looted through the creation of fake brokerage entities and used to siphon money from the government. A forensic analysis of the transactions unearths a massive scheme of looting where fake Insurance Agencies were formed to siphone money from the treasure as business acquisition costs or brokerage fees.
The massive fraud paints a picture of a country being killed through corruption by greedy individuals who are in position of influence.
