PS Lillian Omollo Surrenders to DCI

  • Youth Affairs Principal Secretary Lillian Mbogo-Omollo presented herself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations  Headquarters.

    PS Omollo presented herself at the DCI on Monday hours after National Youth Service Director General Richard Ndubai was arrested as police step up the hunt for Ksh10b NYS scam suspects.

    Omollo on Friday sensationally claimed that no money was stolen from the National Youth Service (NYS).

    In a fresh twist, Omollo told the Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC)  that the 2016/17 Auditor General’s report exonerated the NYS from the Ksh.9billion scandal.

    Omollo stated: “If at all Ksh.9 billion has been lost, it would mean NYS is technically un-operational. No double payments can be done through IFMIS without noticing it, therefore it is not possible for such money to be lost.”

    She exuded confidence that the mechanism put in place at the agency makes it impossible to lose such huge amounts of money as is alleged.

    One of the suspects who had been questioned by the DCI admitted to having received money to the tune of Ksh.60million.

    However, Omollo indicated that she had never met the particular supplier but admitted that she had confirmed receiving money from the IFMIS system.

    “We meet hundreds and hundreds of suppliers. We have held meetings with them jointly and individually, I, however, do not recall her even following up on her money with our offices or even have written to us,” the PS stated.

    Omollo further stated that the over Ksh.1billion alleged payments made to companies was done before her tenure.
