Ben Gethi’s lawyer attempted to transfer suspected NYS money to China

24 December 2015, 10:03

Nairobi - The lawyer of Ben Gethi, the man at the centre of the NYS corruption saga, allegedly tried to transfer part of the money to China.

Patrick Ogola allegedly tried to transfer KES 27 million suspected to be part of the stolen NYS money from an I&M bank to Hong Kong to buy clothes.

The bank however declined the transaction on suspicion that it was linked to money laundering, Standard reports.

Investigations by the Assets Recovery Agency have so far revealed that the money had been withdrawn from three different Family Bank accounts before it was deposited into the I&M bank account.

31-year-old businessman Ben Gethi is alleged to have been involved in fraud that led to loss of KES 791 million from the NYS during Anne Waiguru’s tenure as Devolution CS.

However, in a TV interview recently, Gethi absolved himself from blame.
