Public Service Minister Dalmas Otieno Anyango has strongly denied claims in a section of the press which linked one of his sons to a multi-million scandalwith some powerful clique from mount Kenya region.

In a statement to the press, the bitter cabinet minister challenged those with evidence to come out in the open. He was reacting to a statement in one of the newspapers depicting his son to be operating in a company under the flagship – Green Fuels Ltd which is allegedly associated with the beleagured Finance Minister Amos Kimunya and the late Alex Mureithi.

”I dare anyone with tangible proof to come forward that my son is the Managing Director of the said company which was allegedlygiven sixty thousand hectares of TARDA land, to plant jathropa (Bio-fuel) he thundered.”

The late Alex Mureithi was the chairman of TARDA and at the same time Director of Green Fuels Ltd which according to the story was a clear conflict of interest.
