EACC Cracks Whip in Sh791 Million NYS Scandal

  • The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is set to start probing directors mentioned in the Sh791 Million corruption scandal at the National Youth Service (NYS).

    The office of Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) have been investigating the alleged graft scam that led to the loss of the money at the department.

    The two offices spared the department's Director General Nelson Githinji in their recommendations. However, EACC has summoned Githinji despite not being mentioned in the investigations.

    NYS deputy boss Adan Harakhe has been previously mentioned in a list of 24 persons said to be tied in regard to the graft.

    The scandal which has been highly politicised has seen Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru come under fire with various factions accusing her of being involved. She has reiterated her innocence, claiming to be the whistle blower in the saga.
