CS Najib Balala questioned by parliamentary Committee over the awarding of a Sh100 million contract
Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala, who has been questioned by the anti-corruption watchdog over the awarding of an Sh100 million contract, has said politics is behind his woes.
“We can fight corruption but the challenge sets in when we politicise the war. I am being blackmailed for political reasons,” he told the parliamentary Committee on Sports, Culture and Tourism on Thursday.
Mr Balala, who has been in the news since Saturday, said that after he had recorded a statement with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), an officer of the agents approached him and questioned him about his 2022 political interests and desire to become Mombasa governor.
