All NYS top officials currently under probe send on compulsory leave

BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,20TH MAY 2018-National Youth Service (NYS) employees currently  under investigation over Sh 9 billion scandal have been sent on compulsory leave.This was confirmed through a statement signed by Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary Margaret Kobia.

“I hereby direct that all officers at NYS in Procurement, Finance and Accounting who are under investigations to proceed on compulsory leave effective immediately to allow investigators to complete their work,” said the statement.

The decision comes  two days after  PS Lillian Omollo and NYS Director-General Richard Ndubai announced their resignation to pave way for investigation over the alleged loss of billions.

The two  Ms Omollo and Mr Ndubai are among other 40 people summoned by the police for grilling over the loss of billions at NYS.

The two, according Director of Criminal Investigations boss George Kinoti, are expected to record statements on Monday at the DCI headquarters.

The CS appeared before the National Assembly’s Labour and Social Services Committee this week where she urged the MPs to give the investigative agencies time to do their work.

“I have also seen several figures on the media on the amount of money lost which does not bring a good picture to the ministry. However, I am still waiting for a report from the investigative agencies to know the exact figure,” she added.
