BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,19TH JUNE 2018-After spending three weeks in police custody ,High Court  on Tuesday granted bail  to  all the NYS suspects who are facing charges  related to theft of Ksh 468 million which is a part of Ksh 9 billion misappropriated through dubious means at the National Youth Service.

All the 40 suspects have been ordered to pay Sh 5 million bond with a Sh2 million surety and Sh1 million cash bail.

Those freed include Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service Lillian Omollo and NYS Director General Richard Ndubai, who stepped aside prior to their arrest and subsequent prosecution.

However they will have to abide by tough rules given to them  in court.

Among those rules is that they will have to  report to the directorate of criminal investigation (DCI) weekly,deposit their travel documents  in court,keep off their work stations and offices  as well as  cease to discuss any issue related to the NYS scandal in which they are mentioned.
