 A section of MPs are unhappy with some of their counterparts who travelled to Moscow, Russia, to watch the World Cup. Reason? They think some colleagues are behaving indecently. They cited Senator Millicent Omanga (pictured) who has been posing for pictures with all manner of people, especially Croatian fans. Omanga has received a lot of flak on social media platforms, with many people calling her all manner of names.

Just what is a county government in Western hiding about a cooperative society in the region? Sources whispered to Corridors that graft of monumental proportion is involved. This is in relation to land that was acquired by the sacco. The cooperative society has hundreds of members from the area whose interests are at stake. Corridors will expose those involved in the fullness of time.

 The changes made by President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday caught some people who used to work in State House by surprise. While some enjoyed unlimited access to the House on the Hill a few years ago, that access was cut after Uhuru began his second term. In the recent past they have been holding to some senior Jubilee officials as they hope that their access to the President would be restored. However, the changes announced yesterday were the final nail in the coffin.

 Is Interior CS Fred Matiang’i aware that use of illicit gaming machines is going on in Kasarani, Nairobi? Corridors of Power is informed that a police officer has a number of shops in the area, where he is running the illegal business, despite efforts by the government to curb the enterprise. Shockingly, the machines are fully operational mostly at night, despite the security risks they pose to the estate dwellers. Are there sacred cows in the fight against illegal gaming machines or some people are more equal than others? As if that is not enough, the officer uses an official police car to patrol the area at night, shamelessly.

 A vocal MP from Western Kenya, who is said to have been behind a bribery scandal involving members of a parliamentary committee, has panicked. The lawmaker, who had been shouting the loudest against contraband sugar, was the conveyor of Sh500,000 paid out to some MPs who were probing the sugar. Amid reports EACC sleuths have launched investigations into the bribery claims, the MP fears the worst. He has been making calls to colleagues seeking tricks on how to handle the issue.
