Statement: ODM Demands Justice for Uasin Gishu Student Airlift Scam Victims

ODM PRESS RELEASE

In a shocking revelation that has sent horror shockwaves throughout the nation, former Governor of Uasin Gishu County, now Senator, Jackson Mandago stands accused of perpetrating an elaborate student airlift scam, duping indigent parents of KSh 1.1 Billion under the pretence of securing scholarships for their children in Finland and Canada.

The Uasin Gishu student airlift scam came to light when parents and their children, hopeful for better educational opportunities, were instead met with shattered dreams and financial ruin.

Mercy Tarus, one of the hundreds of victims of this heartless scam, expressed the anguish and devastation felt by the families who had invested their trust and resources in a promise of a brighter future for their children.

Jackson Mandago’s actions have left our children’s futures in ruins. Our parents scraped together every shilling we had to provide us with an education abroad, only to find out that we were victims of a calculated fraud,” lamented Mercy Tarus.

The scandal has raised questions about the integrity and accountability of public officials, particularly those entrusted with leadership positions. The ODM Party unreservedly condemns the actions of the former Governor and underscores the belief that this incident is not an isolated occurrence but rather a reflection of a broader trend within the William Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza political circle.

Thorough and impartial investigation

The Uasin Gishu student airlift scam is a grave violation of public trust. We believe that this heinous act is not an anomaly, but rather indicative of a disturbing pattern of corruption and exploitation by Kenya Kwanza honchos.

As the nation grapples with the repercussions of this scandal, ODM calls upon the relevant criminal justice agencies to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation to uncover the truth and bring justice to the victims. It is imperative that the perpetrators of this deceitful scheme, including former Governor Jackson Mandago, be held accountable for their actions.

The affected families are not only deserving of restitution but also desire to see the rule of law upheld and justice served. The Uasin Gishu student airlift scam has exposed the vulnerabilities within the system that allow unscrupulous individuals to exploit the aspirations of innocent citizens for personal gain.

In conclusion, the Uasin Gishu student airlift scam serves as a stark reminder that the fight against corruption and fraudulent activities within the political realm is far from over, as we saw in a spate of withdrawal of high-profile criminal cases and appointment into public positions of persons of questionable integrity.

The people of Kenya deserve transparency, honesty, and ethical leadership. ODM remains committed to advocating for justice for the victims and pursuing accountability for those responsible.
