‘Wakwende Kabisa!’: Sudi Denies Buying High-End Cars With NHIF Scandal Money

Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has dismissed investigations into his alleged involvement in the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) scandal.

Sudi allegedly used the NHIF scandal proceeds to purchase high-end cars something he has denied.

On Tuesday, October 13, the vocal lawmaker was questioned by detectives from the Serious Crimes Unit of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over a Ksh.150 million false claim scandal at the NHIF.

While taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Sudi claimed that he bought his first Toyota Lexus at 23 years of age and a Range Rover at 26.

The Kapsaret MP further added that he is now on his fourth Range Rover all of which he has acquired genuinely.

“When I was 23 years old, I was driving a Lexus. When I was 26 years old, I bought my first Range Rover. This is my 4th Range Rover since then. Mtoto wa maskini akipata ameiba lakini wa tajiri akipata ni ya baba yake na ni yao. Wakwende kabisa.” Sudi said.

Sudi was grilled for close to 10 hours for being suspected of benefitted from the funds remitted under the guise of catering for Kenyans who sought treatment in India.

The DCI detectives reportedly trailed part of the money to his two cars bought from a car dealer on Ngong Road in Nairobi.

According to the investigators, the trail showed how Sudi received the money from NHIF and transferred it to the account of a city agent to fund the treatment of patients who sought treatment in India.

The agent is reported to have been instructed to channel the money to a Nairobi law firm and it was then that the two cars were bought and registered to Sudi.
