Nairobi - The Public Service, Youth and Gender Cabinet Secretary, Sicily Kariuki has dismissed Youth Fund board over graft.

Kariuki said her Ministry would recover KES 180 million looted by the board members.

Speaking in Othaya Catholic Hall, Nyeri, Kariuki said the board has already been suspended from transacting any business until investigations by EACC and CID are completed.

“It is true money was lost in the Ministry but it is subject to investigations by Parliament and government agencies. I can assure you that individuals implicated involved will be apprehended,” said Kariuki.
