The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has scored a major victory in its fight against corruption after former Kenya Ports Authority Managing Director James Mulewa was ordered to pay Sh74.6 million for unexplained assets.

Justice Eric Ogola ordered Mr Mulewa to pay the government Sh63.6 million being cumulative bank deposits he made between August 31, 2008 and May 20, 2010.

The judge further directed Mr Mulewa to pay the government Sh11 million being the value of a vacant parcel of land in Nyali, Mombasa and a four bedroom maisonette at Bandari villas.

“Being that these assets (the plot and maisonette) are unexplained, the value should be paid to the Government of Kenya as required by Section 55 (6) of the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act,” said Justice Ogola.


The judge ruled that it was evident that Mr Mulewa was afforded a reasonable opportunity to explain the disparity between the assets and his legitimate sources of income as required by the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act.

Through lawyer Philip Kagucia, EACC argued that upon completion of its investigations, it found that Mr Mulewa had unexplained assets and consequently issued as statutory notice requiring him to explain how he acquired them.

EACC further argued that the response by former KPA boss was not satisfactory hence it instituted the proceedings.

Mr Kagucia told the court that EACC had established that Mr Mulewa had unexplained assets and there was no evidence in court that they were not acquired through corruption.

He further told the court that Mr Mulewa had denied allegations against him but had not provided any evidence to support his claim that he legitimately acquired the assets.


The court heard that the MD used to earn Sh1, 050,000 per month.

The anti-corruption agency had also claimed that during the period, Mr Mulewa acquired the properties in his name and that of his son.

Mr Kagucia told the court that it was irrelevant that Mr Mulewa was acquitted of corruption charges.

The former MD did not dispute that he owned various bank accounts but argued that some of them were operated for his own use while others for the benefit of others in his capacity as the administrator of his late father’s estate.

Mr Mulewa also claimed that during the period in question apart from being a KPA employee, he was involved in the real estate business where he acquired some of the properties from as early as 1984.

The former MD also told the court that his wife operates several business stalls at Kongowea market and a guest house and that he is the beneficiary of his late father’s estate which includes a ranch.

He also claimed that the daily deposits made to his accounts were proceeds from the sale of cattle at his family ranch in Kilifi County.


He doesn’t know how to hide money, mijinga.



NIS and CBK AML department instead of getting intel on such people who are looting the public coffers and engaging in corrupt deals kazi yao ni kufuata fuata Lenaola na Mwilu usiku kujua mahali walikojoa at 00:35 AM. Smh


hii ni ngombe haijui the third process of money laundering. Layering!

Sijasema ni mwizi, but arap mashamba hutawai muona kwa makesi za upuss kama hizi.

Refer to Narcos season 3 episode 4 for those who dont know the four steps of money laundering.

Mega-Corruption in this country will be fought using intelligence bodies. You cannot tell me no one knew when Kabura was withdrawing and carrying money in sacks during the Waiguru era.



Here is a clear close and shut case but you’re still complaining? Isn’t the Kabura/Gethi case still ongoing ama what are you saying? Don’t forget even Kidero carried 100M in a briefcase but he was acquitted…we don’t bring it up here do we?

Irony that your handle is scotland yard.


Learn to read . I applauded the effort but there are many others out there that are dismissed for lack of evidence when it’s very easy to acquire evidence or nip the looting at the bud before it becomes a nightmare.

Or the Waiganjo case for example. :D:D

:smiley: Married… But single. All men statuses

Touche…I’m out on bail…hehe

nice … if EACC can do this to the next 20 government officials then kenya will head to right direction. Start with Waiguru queen mother of corruption. Otherwise this is a good move and i would like to credit EACC and not uhuru.


This fellow puzzles me. There is clearly no issue over whether there’s a NASA v JP side but somehow, that sour blood seems to taint everything for SY! I thought NASA’s main rallying cry is against corruption?! Sounds like lack of imagination - if the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.


Still doesn’t make sense. Did you expect all of them to be prosecuted and completed all at once? Maybe you could recommend the pace that pleases you to EACC so they don’t have to face your wrath?


Tribalist old man. Wetangula and maduvadi should be rotting in jail by now. Not forgetting jakuon chief financier Kidero and jakuon himself. Your hate for mt Kenya ( jubilee)) is so deep yet you are married to our lady from meru.kweli as someone said here, marrying a shinny eye is an achievement to cordmorons like you.


Show me somewhere where I showed hate for mt. Kenya… and as you do that can you kindly remove that toothpick stuck in between your rectum and anal opening before you address me young man.
I have mt.kenya guys here and we discuss cordially @The.Black.Templar is one ,@gashwin is another , @Chifu is another . Ask them if iv ever shown signs of tribalism. Seems you have been dreaming and wanking the whole night on how to address your concerns to me. For some reasons I have never engaged you and the first time you do , you spew green fermented bile mixed with horse shit. Learn to crawl first my friend before you walk…simpleton.

well, great friend, i’ll give it to you; you are one of the few that don’t let tribalism cloud your political discourse. perhaps @Marlboro 3D is tarring you black by association with the extremists in your political camp…
