BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,21ST MAY 2018-Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr has called for immediate disbandment of the National Youth Service. Speaking at KTN breakfast show on Monday, Mutula Jnr said the suspension of senior NYS officials was not a solution.
“NYS should be disbanded and ran under the ministry of devolution in conjunction with the ministry of youth as it has failed,”Mutula Jnr said.
He added that the major cities are dirty because the NYS which is supposed to aid in sanitation, sewage and drainage unclogging has failed in its mandate.
“Mombasa and Nairobi have become one of the dirtiest cities yet the NYS have a budget that we have been allocating since 2013 that is ending up in people`s pocket,” Mutula said.
Mutula said the suspects of the new NYS scandal should be in court by now. His call comes after the service was hit by yet another scandal amounting to Sh9 billion.
On Sunday, Margaret Kobia, the Minister in charge of Public Service, Youth and Gender suspended all procurement, finance and accounting officers under investigation at the NYS.
“[I direct these officers] to proceed on compulsory leave immediately to allow investigators to complete their work,” Kobia said.
