Australian Senator facing more corruption allegations

Just months after Lucy Gichuhi used taxpayers’ money to fund some of her relatives’ traveling expenses to attend her birthday party, the Kenyan born senator is again in Australian news headlines after some dubious deals.The liberal senator who is also a former accountant advertised a rental house, that no one was just buying, for $80 a week while struggling with $10000 in unpaid council bills.Together with her husband William, they have been in court a record seven times for failing to pay their council rates and water bills.Lucy Gichuhi is no different from her Kenyan politics counterparts who are synonymous with amassing wealth after getting a position of leadership.She owns three rundown houses in the South Australian steelworks city of Whyalla which is northwest of Adelaide worth more than $180000. These are part of the six properties she owns.Over a period of three years, she put two small houses on sale but withdrew them after they failed to sell. One of the homes on sale was listed on four occasions.Local court magistrates ordered the senator to pay almost $10000 in unpaid bills she had accrued during her time as a member of parliament.The senator also owns a house and two plots in Kenya. The home they currently reside in was bought in 2012 for half a million dollars. This was the same period during which they were trying to unsuccessfully sell their properties.Kenyans have expressed shock at the politician’s love for material things saying she has no moral authority to talk about integrity in Kenya while she exports corruption to Australia.While some Kenyans feel like debts are normal and do not amount to corruption, unethical practices such as failing to pay your bills are highly shunned upon in some Western countries.

Is this corruption a thing that runs in Kenyans’ blood or what

From the story I don’t see any corruption she just owes $10000 in inpaid council bills or Im I missing something ?

When it rains… It pours…

Read her name again and you will find it

Corruption ni dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power. It may involve bribery though not necessarily. Uyu Gichuhi was not paying her bills while buying homes worth 50 times the bills she was failing to pay. That’s corruption.

I am jut ashamed to be associated with her.
