Jaguar now backs bid to disband Nacada

Nacada board member Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has backed a recommendation by a National Assembly committee to disband Nacada over corruption allegations.

Parliament’s Security and Administration Committee had on Tuesday urged for the disbandment of Nacada for allegedly wasting funds.

It also accused the John Mututho-led agency of failing to do its job and overstepping its mandate.

The MPs said the agency is trying to control alcohol and drug abuse when its job is to campaign against the vice.

The lawmakers also accused the board of watching as Sh137 million was frittered on consultancy services for disbursement of the funds and procurement of media services.

Nacada has been on the spot for procuring media services from Kenya Broadcasting Corporation and other unnamed media houses worth Sh47 million without tendering.

The MPS started investigations the matter after a flurry of reports in the media.
