Waiguru told to record statement over NYS scandal

Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru will be required to record a statement over the Sh791 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.

The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko said Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) commenced investigations into the scandal following a request by Ms Waiguru.

“However, the CS has not recorded a statement regarding this matter. It is important that the CS records a statement,” the DPP said in a press statement Friday.

On Friday, Mr Tobiko said several aspects of fraud raised in the file fall under the mandate of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Agency (EACC).

“I have therefore directed the EACC be invited to join the prosecution team to participate in the review of the file in order to determine matters falling under its legal mandate,” the DPP stated.

The names in the file include that of NYS deputy director-general Adan Harakhe and 23 others.
