An international watchdog group known as The Sentry has released a report naming Baringo Senator Gideon Moi as part of the international cartels minting billions from war-ravaged South Sudan.
According to the report, South Sudanese politicians, senior government and military officials have hijacked the country’s fledgeling institutions and looted its resources by collaborating with individuals and corporations from across the world.
The report indicates that Baringo Senator Gideon Moi is part of an international cartel that is profiteering from dealings with senior South Sudan government officials together with Chinese oil giants and networks of traders from countries such as Uganda, Kenya, Eritrea, Britain and Ethiopia.
Gideon Moi is believed to have formed a partnership with President Kiir’s daughter Adut, his son in law Nardos Ghebeyehu and Salva Kiir’s close advisor Akot Lual Arech.
Kiir’s daughter Adut, his son in law and close advisor Akot Lual control a company called Conex Energy. They allegedly formed a joint venture known as Caltec Corporation with Lukiza Limited, a company which Gideon Moi has a partial ownership stake.
The joint venture is described as a Special Purpose Vehicle to specifically engage in the provision of services in the oil sector, waste management, drilling, logistics and air transportation. The Sentry report claims the firm has been directly involved in dubious deals and looting sprees with Chinese-Malaysian oil giants and other networks as shown below.
The networks mentioned have successfully managed to loot state assets and fuelled war crimes by directly supporting and funding deadly militias which have killed thousands of people in South Sudan.
