Thieves and Rogues at NIB Part 3 – Cargill Buddy Paid 400%

Nassau, Bahamas — When they aren’t busy rejecting claims filed at NIB sources tell us management is all over the place squandering public money. The heat now coming down on the Ingraham Government over the spending splurges at the National Insurance Board now echoes around the country with a call for an OPEN INVESTIGATION!cargill

Bahamas Press’ probe into NIB has uncovered serious, SERIOUS breaches in the systems of expenditure now underway at its headquarters on Blue Hill Road.

Another charge raised in the Parliament on NIB on Wednesday by former Minister Shane Gibson, involved the purchase order of electrical supplies requested at a hefty price tag.

In response to the claims director Algernon Cargill said, “I have no idea of an item that was purchased by NIB for over $60,000 where the average bid was $13,000. I’ve never even heard of this.” The director’s response to this was swift, short, blunt and telling. And we know why.ward

Your Bahamas Press therefore, decided to dig hard into this and uncovered an order, which wretched-up this huge $60,000 bill. The items in question included electrical supplies ordered by NIB from Kenuth Electric.

Documents seen by Bahamas Press show the company was given the contract to provide NIB with lighting rods, which regularly amounted to $13,000 in past purchases. Nonetheless, NIB paid over $60,000 for the item as a price tag marked up by 400%. And that’s not all.

Additional files on the books and in the systems at NIB tell us the electrical company almost every month is the sole provider of electrical supplies being ordered by NIB. So when did this ‘sensual love affair’ with NIB begin?

Kenuth Electric on Harold Road is owned and operated by Kenuth Knowles a dear longtime friend and “buddy” of Cargill. When the director joined NIB sources say, so did Knowles’ company. In fact, invoices on the account payables at NIB showed Kenuth practically collects a cheque from NIB every month for frivolous items not needed at the Board’s head office. Invoices by Knowles’ company continue, we understand, to flood the account payables department.

Hubert Ingraham at the poker table on his way to Hiati last week. Some say Ingraham was speanding $1,000 a game in the casino.

So why squander the people’s money like this? Especially when hundreds of benefit claims are being denied by the country’s social security bank.

Bahamas Press searched a background of this “couple” wh0  frequently travelled together. Cargill and Knowles are travel buddies, amigos, compadres that go back to Cargill’s days at CIBC. They both journeyed regularly to Florida together for fun and frolic. In those days, it was common to travel to the big USA for sensual pleasures of carnal delights and lusts. So we are not surprise to hear Knowles with his feet in the door at NIB along with his longtime buddy of the past.

Therefore, it is not strange to hear the minister of NIB, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, order and direct the management team to respond to the claims made in the House of Assembly.

Ingraham knows as we do, something has gone wicked at the Board and changes are imminent.

Bahamas Press continues our probe into NIB this Sunday, when our finding will take us near the altars. We invite NIB to go to Church this weekend.

  1. Yeah Ingraham may not want to do anything about NIB but the public can…..This cant be right….How do you put someone who was mix up in cookie jar mess at CIBC as the Director of our pension fund.  OMG!!!!   Something just aint right ,,,,,,We in serious trouble.     A fired banker heading the pension fund and Hubert says he will safe Guard the cooking jar….Help me!!! Help us!!!

  2. Ingraham can’t do anything about any of these scandals because he didn’t do anything about the “Mona Vie” scandal. I submit that he lied in Parliament when he tried to protect the boy junior minister(with small letters, you note?)when he(Ingraham) got up in parliament,after he saw that Laing was in deep doodoo, and declared that he told Laing to do what he did in the “Mona Vie” incident. I submit that this was an outright lie; I submit that Ingraham probably knew nothing about the incident until Frank Smith brought it up in the Assembly, but to take the heat off Laing he mis-led the house when he told members, through the speaker that he told Laing to penn those instructions, as Laing put it. Ingraham compromised in that case so he cannot do any less in these other scandals.

  3. Russell, this will probably be called a “tempest in a teacup,” from shirley st. like “Mona Vie”! Dont hold your breath, thats why the fnm, owns partly all of media.

  4. @Anthony Brice
    issued contracts go through the legal and moral process most of the time but the Director needs to let the public know if he has any shares in Kenuths electric.He sure spends lots of time there and uses his motorbike as transportation.So be careful what you ask for as the small man on the streets is now focusing on this situation and are they talking.Eagles are abouit to snatch their prey,will they grab cargill,Ward and Cabinet Ministers all at once.

  5. Parents paying all these hefty school and college fees and encouraging their children to do their best and they could get somewhere in this country, but if you don’t have connection in high places it is really hard to get any where. Students returning home from college with degrees and can’t even find a job and when they do they are underpaid, that’s why plenty of them refuse to return home. If people like the buffed roommate and Kenuth would be honest with us, they would probably tell us all you need is to have the right connection in high places. The buffed roommate might throw in a little extra by suggesting that you have a good body too.

  6. @Anthony Brice Why not stop worrying about the political parties and be concerned with the public funds being funnel out into crooks hands whoever they are, if Shane and Brave are bringing it up in the House, they must be pretty stupid to implicate themselves WOW!!!, wouldn’t they help too suppress this, but that doesn’t matter, let the chips fall, let heads roll, where them may.

  7. Cargill brags about how he do not haveto pay for food and drinks at nesbit’s no I see the connection what I want him to do isto respond about whether or not he send out claimants files come on cargil you know u love the media if hewants to honest he can let the nation know about the happy hour at Nesbit with some of his exec. I don’t want to call names they know who they are. He loves kick backs

  8. Your probe into National Insurance is a good one BP but why don’t we start from August 2002 to present. Let the public know about contracts issued under Brave Davis and Shane Gibson. Lets have some balance. And what about the other director and former acting director.

    • If you read part 2 of Thieves and Rogues, we at Bahamas Press have called for “An open Commission to begin an investigation at NIB with relegated powers to prosecute.”

      We believe the time has come to openly account for your stewardship. The probe can go back since its inception here in the country.

      We have no bias here Mr. Brice, however, we hope you see this probe not from your “political lens” and join our call for an open Commission. The call for people and papers from place to place to investigate this splurge of public funds.

  9. My God, BP, They believe that NIB has monoploy money and they can play with it heh?. Some heads need to roll and roll soon. I saw that idiot Kenuth on his motorbike this morning leaving Charlie’s Place. I cry shame on him and Cargill.

  10. BAHAMAS PRESS I HAVE TO GIVE IT TO YOU THE ARTICLE ON CARGILL AND KNOWLES IS TRUE THEY DID THE SAME THING WHEN CARGIL WORKED AT CIBC AND KNOWLES WAS THE RECEIPENT OF FUNDS ALSO THEY HAD A ANOTHER BUDDY BRIAN BUTLER I TELL YOU ALL OF THEM GOT CROWN LAND IN EXUMA TOO FROM THE HOOK UP AT CIBC INVESTIGATE THAT ONE. REMEMBER BRIAN AND CARGIL GOT FIRED FOR MONEY LAUNDERING AT CIBC. THEY DIRTY.

  11. It seems to me from a prima facial perspective, someone higher than cargill has to be condoning this kind of behavior. Why are all of the FNM scandels involving money?
    Why is the Prime Minister allowing so many money scandels to go unattended?
    Did he the Prime Minister not say if he catches your hand in the cookie jar he will cut it off?

    It is appearing more evident, that the more he the Prime Minister refuses to deal with these allegations which are proving to have some substance that he too is aiding and abetting such actions…

    Is he afraid he may have to cut off his own hands?
