Exposed: Somali family getting multibillion tenders at KURA in conjunction with Banisa MP


A man and wife of a former MP are at the centre of multi-billion road tenders in the urban areas in Kenya after squandering 95% of funds allocated and leaving much work not completed as per the agreement by the Kenya urban roads authority.

The woman at the centre of supplying the somali guy with tenders is deputy director supply chain management at the Kenya urban roads authority Mrs Sadia Haji Adam khalifa.

According to insiders Sadia Haji Adam khalifa has been giving tenders to a company belonging to Khalif Ali’s company which doesn’t qualify as per the strict guidelines of the Kenya urban roads authority in Kenya.

In contrary to what the government expects, the engineer does absolutely pathetic work leaving most of his projects stalled because he’s sure that his back is covered right from the government entity in charge of building roads in urban areas.

Abdisirat Khalif Ali in conjunction with Banisa member of parliament Hon. Hassan Kulow Maalim who they co-manage the registered fake company together with has taken enough from the pockets of poor Kenyans.

YOUTH. Ms Saadia Haji AdanKhalif. Deputy Director, Supply Chain Management.

In a move to confuse the public knowledge on the company, the MP is always out of the picture leaving the errand Somali boy to run the cowboy construction company by the name Tasha Holdings limited.

The company is also said to have been involved in giving kickbacks to some members of parliament who we will reveal in our next expose.

They also own Tosha petrol stations in Kenya which also generate a lot of income against the law because they don’t follow legal procedures as stipulated in the Kenyan energy act.

Below is an example of stalled road projects in Nairobi directly done by Tasha holding limited, billions lost.
