BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,27TH MAY 2018-The Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti has submitted 10 files of the National Youth Service scandal to Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
According to Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji, he is leading a team of experienced prosecutors in undertaking a final review of the files.
“A team of experience Prosecutors led by the DPP is currently undertaking a final review of the files,” the DPP said in a statement posted on ODPP twitter handle on Sunday.
About 40 individuals have already recorded a statement with detectives at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters.
Reliable sources have told WWW.UPESINEWS.CO.KE that the country may witness arrest of key suspects within the week.
The Principal Secretary in the State Department of Public Service and Youth, Lilian Omollo, and National Youth Service Director General, Richard Ndubai – stepped aside to facilitate the ongoing investigations.
But the PS HAS since refuted that Sh9 billion was lost at NYS.
She made the remarks on May 25, when she appeared before the Public Accounts Committee for a grilling on Friday.
“I do not think it is possible for that kind of money to be lost from an institution and the Auditor General for whom me as an accounting officer I live in fear of then does not find it, for me it is mind-boggling. I am not sure how it is that it never came to my attention that Sh9 billion was lost,” she stated.
“If this colossal amount of money of Sh9bilion has been lost and was completely undetected by the Auditor General’s office, it indeed raises a lot of questions. We too are very keen to understand and unravel this alleged atrocity that has missed all the eyes of scrutiny.”
The scandal has brought to light yet another mega corruption scandal, with some suspects receiving million of shillings for goods not delivered.
