Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi has applied to cross-examine both the current Safaricom CEO and the immediate former, Bob Collymore and Michael Joseph respectively.
The blogger wants the two to answer integrity questions concerning the firms management in connection to the CCTV project between Safaricom and the government and also transmission of election results in the 2013 general elections.
The cross-examination will also touch of the forensic audit of the firm by KPMG in 2016 which touched on integrity issues such as corruption in the awarding of tenders, where the names of senior officials of the firm feature prominently.
The notice of cross-examination was filed yesterday by lawyer Apollo Mboya at the Milimani Law Courts.
The cross-examination will be undertaken by Mboya, who is Nyakundi’s lawyer. Nyakundi has been in a constant battle with Safaricom over exposes that have revealed the dirty secrets of the firm.
In a story he published today, Nyakundi accuses the firm of using its financial muscle to subvert justice.
“Safaricom have been banking on backroom shenanigans and financial inducements to stall cases and evade accountability. The arrogance of Bob Collymore and his staffers showed that they had confidence as a result of gaming the system to their favor,” writes the blogger.
