NYS theft suspect Kabura arrives at EACC for grilling

23 February 2016, 12:56

Nairobi - The key suspect in the KES 791 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal, Josephine Kabura was on Tuesday morning questioned by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

The questioning, Capital News reports, comes after claims she made in an affidavit linking former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru to the multi-million shillings scam.

She is expected to explain more about her affidavit which implicated many other people in the scandal including two newspaper journalists.

Kabura who is facing charges of theft of KES 791 million had sworn under oath that Waiguru – contrary to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission’s assertions – was not blameless in the whole affair but was in fact the brains behind the scheme.

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 material for the Kibera and Mukuru slums, says Waiguru engaged her and even oversaw the registration of her companies.

According to The Star, 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.
