So, It all starts when after all the Hustle, You manage to get the Company Contact details.

Yes it is a matter of luck getting in to the circle having in mind the Number of people on the Same boat but as You can Imagine, getting in Can change your Life forever.
Also as with other Businesses and organizations in Kenya, Corruption is also a very big Factor at the Company that has half a dozen employees. In many instances, Businesses looking for Tenders pay some upfront bribes in Order to be put on the Receiving Circle.

And that is the exact tactic that was used by Waititu and his Unites For Kiambu movement. Kabogo has one very visible weakness, Ignorance. From most of his speech and chest thumping, Waititu and Co.

Whenever the word Drug Baron is mentioned, Our minds quickly figure and imagine a moustached Short guy from Columbia or Mexico. We have been used to the “El” names in the Narcotics business. We all know how wealthy this guys are, how their business is huge and how ruthless they are to anyone who crosses their paths. We have also heard how Gentle and human they are, generally showing love and support to the poor and in exchange receiving loyalty and following from common men.
But one thing that really go unnoticed, is the role of Kenya in the drug trade. While it seems well covered, Kenya is one of the greatest drug capitals of the world. We produce some of the biggest names in the narcotics kingpinly who are mostly covered on other high level activities in the country. They live lavishly on beach mansions, drive huge cars and fly private to the world’s most exclusive destinations (Though they are prohibited in many countries already).
While marijuana is common though illegal, it is not the main art of the big Gammer, it is traded by the “Rich Guys” who in reality are just the average middle class Kenyans. It is cheap around Kenya and used by 3 in 10 of the Kenyans. Heroin and Cocaine are the two major businesses of the wealthy cartels who are also involved in Corruption, Tax evasion, land grabbing and Murder. All these things go together and they are the characteristics of the Kingpins all around the World.
Many senior Kenyans have been listed by various authorities, and are still in probe on the matters. They include Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko, former Assistant Minister Harun Mwau, former Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua and Othaya MP Mary Wambui.
All of them were named in Parliament by Prof Saitoti but denied the accusations and have always insisted the report had no basis.
On June 1, 2011, just six months after the list was presented to Parliament, Harun Mwau was hit by new sanctions. President Barack Obama ordered sanctions on the businesses of seven individuals linked to the drugs trade, among them Mwau and one Naima Mohamed Nyakiniywa.
“This report to the Congress, under section 804(a) of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act, 21 U.S.C. 1901-1908 (the “Kingpin Act”), transmits my designations of the following seven foreign individuals as appropriate for sanctions under the Kingpin Act and reports my direction of sanctions against them under the Act,” the letter by Obama to Congress read.
Others on the list were from Mexico, Afghanistan, Colombia and Kyrgyzstan.
The Kingpin Act blocks all property and interests in property, subject to US jurisdiction, owned or controlled by significant foreign narcotics traffickers as identified by the President.
