APA denies Monica Juma husband Peter Kagwanja is a director

Interior Principal Secretary Monica Juma

APA Insurance has denied Interior PS Monica Juma’s husband, Peter Kagwanja, is one of its directors, as alleged by Central MPs on Tuesday.

Kandara MP Alice Wahome claimed Juma wanted the Sh6 billion police insurance tender given to APA, where Kagwanja reportedly sits on the board, instead of AAR insurance.

“Peter Kagwanja is not, and has never, been a director of APA Insurance or any of its affiliated companies,” CEO Micheal Oduor said in a statement on Thursday.

Oduor listed Daniel Ndonye, James Gitoho, Reto Schnarwiler, Rick Ashley, Ashok Shah, Shashikant Shah and Budhichand Shah as the company’s directors.

He said the National Police Insurance Scheme tender has been proposed for implementation as a consortium among APA, CIC, Britam, First Assurance and GA Insurance.

Wahome claimed the Interior ministry deliberately delayed awarding the tender, a year after the funds were allocated in the 2014/15 budget.

She claimed AAR had won the tender but Juma cancelled the award, pushing instead for APA.

“Juma wants to give her husband a project,” Wahome said, accusing the couple of conspiring in favour of a company Kagwanja serves as director.- See moreat: http://www.the-star.co.ke/news/apa-denies-monica-juma-husband-peter-kagwanja-director#sthash.tEIO57rr.dpuf
