  • Kenya’s ambassador to the US Robinson Githae is in the centre of an alleged scandal, where the diaspora community is claiming he was abetting corruption at the Washington DC embassy.

    Kenyan diaspora claimed that Githae was charging Ksh15,000 for an identity card instead of the official fee of Ksh4,500.

    Applicants who protested the increased fee were told that the additional money was a service charge.

    They demanded for the government to step in and address the issue.

    It also surfaced that Kenyans living in Kansas were asked to raise at least Ksh1.6 Million for the embassy staff to travel to the city to issue the vital documents on October 6 and 7.

    The embassy does not have enough manpower to send out to different cities and that’s the reason we engage the services of other groups in specific cities,” the ambassador remarked on Saturday.

    Githae admitted that they charged extra for ID issuance due to logistics.

    Information has been manipulated to make it look like the embassy is charging more than it’s required when it comes to ID issuance but the reality is, the seemingly extra charges are those associated with logistics,” he added.

    He also pointed out that the graft allegations were meant to besmirch the good reputation of the embassy.

    “It is our duty and responsibility to assist and help this group of Kenyan diaspora.”
