BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI, 6TH JUNE 2018-Three more suspects linked to the Sh468 million NYS scandal have denied corruption-related charges.

The three Josephat Njoroge, Anthony Makara Wamiti and Peter Wagura Kimani, denied charges of conspiracy to commit an economic crime and neglect of official duties.

Anthony Makara Wamiti and Peter Wagura Kimani, directors of Arkroad Holdings Limited, also denied charges of fraudulent acquisition of public funds.

The company which is associated with them is accused of receiving Sh24 million from National Youth Service for goods not supplied.

Lawyer Kirathe Wandugi who is representing them urged the court to discharge the warrants of arrest issued against them and sought their release on bail.

Former PS Lillian Omollo failed to appear in court for the second time.

The court had been told that she was hospitalised at Kenyatta National Hospital. Currently, defence lawyers are seeking to have the pre-trial postponed.

Eight suspects are yet to appear in court and take plea.
