How ‘Joan Kubai’ has Stupidly Exposed Her Corrupt and Dirty Parents to Detectives





As you struggle to raise the rent for your bedsitter, a family in Runda has dedicated a whole bedroom to folding clothes.

This is what has surprised most Kenyans as one Joan Kubai shared a video of her luxurious home on Snapchat.

The teen took her virtual friends to a tour of her humongous home in Runda which has five bedrooms, four living rooms and a library in the artic.

Outside the home, you are greeted to a lush green garden and swimming pool. There is also a garage for the family’s numerous vehicles.

Where does one get the money for all these? It seems that Joan’s parents just like most rich Kenyans got their wealth through backdoor means.

The famous Twitter Detectives have dug deep and revealed some details about the Kubai family that Joan would wish they remained buried. Joan Kubai is the daughter of city tycoons Peter Macharia Kubai and Isabellah Wairimu Kubai.


Peter Macharia Kubai and Isabellah Wairimu Kubai are joint directors of Benisa Limited, a firm which at the centre of two separate investigations by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) into Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria’s alleged violation of the public procurement law and ghost projects in the county.

Benisa had been hired by the now-bankrupt Italian firm CMC Di Ravenna on May 15, 2015, as a subcontractor to do a number of works on the Itare dam project for Sh360 million.

At the time, the Italian firm accused Benisa of deploying inadequate staff and resources on-site and terminated the contract on June 22, 2018.

The company is believed to be part of a network of companies Mr Peter Macharia Kubai and his family have been accused of using to secure double payment for the same work, and in most instances, no work done.

On this basis, Benisa Limited was, for instance, paid twice to construct a single water pan at Kangutu in Kakuzi Mitubiri ward.


According to documents, the first tender that was paid through LPO number 2835/2014 was worth Sh3.97 million while the second that was paid through LPO number 2724-2775/2 was worth Sh3.99 million.

Mr. Peter Macharia Kubai is also being investigated for allegedly giving juicy kickbacks to Governor Mwangi Wa Iria in order to secure lucrative road repair tenders.

While digging up through the file, sleuths from EACC also stumbled onto Benisa Limited while investigating the stalled Marsabit Stadium, where the firm was paid over Sh88 million with only 20 per cent of the work done.

On July 30, 2019 Benisa Limited obtained a default judgment in a suit it filed against CMC Di Ravenna to recover Sh31.5 million for rock blasting works it did in the Itare dam project, which has also collapsed and is at the centre of a Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) probe.

Documents at the Companies’ Registry show that Benisa Limited is owned by Peter Macharia Kubai (50%), Isabellah Wairimu Kubai (25%) and Jadiel Macharia Kubai the remaining percentage.

All the three are said to be business associates of Murang’a county Governor Mwangi Wa Iria.
