Anne Ngirita detained in NYS graft case
Businesswoman Ann Ngirita is back in prison following the withdrawal of surety who stood bond in her graft case.
Ngirita, who recently joined active politics, is the main suspect in the Sh200 million National Youth Service (NYS) graft case.
Nairobi News cannot reveal the details of the surety in respect of a court order.
The surety withdrew the security he deposited in court to hand Ngirita temporary freedom.
Thus, Milimani Anti-Corruption Magistrate Eunice Nyutu ordered the detention of Ngirita at the Langata Women Prison after allowing a request by the surety to withdraw the security he’d deposited in the case.
Ngirita, who’s gunning for the Nakuru Women Represenative seat ahead of the August 2022 polls, has been out on bond.
What this means is that Ngirita will, henceforth be attending her court hearing from custody unless she gets an alternative surety or cash bail as granted by the court when she answered the charges in 2018.
Ngirita, her mother, two sisters, former PS Lilian Omollo, and other former NYS employees were in court for the hearing of the case in which a witness produced what he says were payment vouchers worth Sh4million.
