NYS suspect fails to appear in court, claims illness

18 February 2016, 22:51

Nairobi -  National Youth Service NYS scandal suspect Josephine Kabura now says she is unable to appear before the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission due to ill-health.

The Star reports that Kabura had been summoned by the anti-graft body for questioning on Thursday, after she made fresh claims involving former CS Anne Waiguru over the KES 791 million scam.

Kabura has sworn an affidavit claiming that Waiguru was the mastermind of the NYS scandal.

The EACC had earlier closed the NYS file and cleared Waiguru of any wrongdoing in the multi-million shilling scandal but has re-opened the probe against her after Kabura’s affidavit.

“Kabura has been reported sick. The meeting has rescheduled to Tuesday at 10am,” EACC Head of Corporate Communications Kairichi Mirimba told Capital FM News.

Capital News further reports that Kabura who says her companies – Form Home Builders, Roof and All Trading and Reinforced Concrete Technologies – received the KES 791 million as payment for the supply of road construction materials for the Kibera and Mukuru slums, says Waiguru engaged her and even oversaw registration of the companies.

She claims to have met Waiguru when she worked at the Ministry of Finance, specifically in the IFMIS directorate. It was then, she says, that she started carrying out “small jobs” for Waiguru which eventually culminated in her appointment as the “sole merchant assigned to deliver all (NYS) road materials.”

It was in this role that Kabura claims to have met Adan Harakhe whom she says expedited payments to her companies in his role as (Authority to Incur Expenditure) AIE holder.
