Technology Service Providers of Kenya (TESPOK) Director and Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) Board Member Hillary have accused him of embezzling funds meant for the education of his late friend’s three children.
From screenshots leaked on social media, it is alleged that following the demise of one of Hillary’s male friends, his fellow alumni from Lenana School set up a WhatsApp Group for the purpose of making contributions towards his burial and the bereaved family.
At the closure of fundraiser, Hillary is reported to have announced that a total of Ksh. 494,000 had been raised and it was agreed that the sum would go to the kid’s education fund.
Members of the WhatsApp Group further agreed that they would set up a meeting at a date after the burial, with finding the perfect insurance policy to fund the children’s education fund as part of the agenda.
Joanne, an ex-partner of the demised and the mother of his two children, says this is where Hillary’s cat and mouse games began.
Read her full narration (with screenshots attatched) below.
“His numbers are [WITHHELD]. Help me shame this pig of a man and across the Lenana School Family” she begins.
“Now this is the story, in August 2018, I lost the father to my 2 children whom we lived together for years as husband and wife. Things happened and we separated. During this time, he met another lady and they sired one baby. The deceased left three kids in total.
Now, during the period of his demise, his former high school, Lenana Alumnus contributed money through a WhatsApp Group to help with the kid’s education.
Hillary announced clearly in church that a sum of Ksh. 494K was raised and would go to the kid’s fund which would help with schooling and all matters concerning their education.
We were to have a meeting to discuss the way forward about the funds after the burial which was never and has never been the case. One of the agendas of the meeting was identify with the insurance policy to run the education fund for the kids. We did our part to sort the education policies and his part was to disburse the funds to the bank account for each kids share. This was the beginning of the long chase. ”
“Late October, myself and the other lady tried reach out Hillary over the issue to see if we can have the meeting but our efforts went futile. Sometime in December, Hillary blocked me on both his numbers same as the other lady. We went ahead and created a WhatsApp group and included family and other relevant persons just so to make them know that we never received a dime from Hillary nor did he do as was expected of him.”
“During this time up until late last year, he lied to several people that he had channelled the money to us, mara he claimed to have given it to the late’s father which all is a lie. In the group, he was caught shamelessly and rose again the need of wanting us to meet, again nothing happened.”
