Former Nation FM presenter Angela Angwenyi is in trouble and set to lose her house, over the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.

In a report by Business Daily, the former radio queen ran into financial difficulties and on Monday Garam Auctioneers advertised that her apartment in Jacaranda Gardens estate, was up for auction.

The daily stated that Angwenyi’s financial woes came after she was caught up in the multi-billion NYS scandal where her company was awarded a consultancy contract.

The company known as Out of the Box Solutions Limited was awarded Sh302 million worth of tender to publicize and enhance access to the 30 percent of government tenders reserved for women, the youth and people living with disabilities.

At the time of stopping payments to the company by Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Out of the Box Solutions Limited had been paid Sh90.7 million. The accounts were also frozen.

Angwenyi appears before PAC

In November 2016, the former Nation FM presenter appeared before PAC to shed light on the contract she was awarded by the Ministry of Devolution for a one year publicity campaign.

She justified the Sh90 million payment saying that her company had executed 11 radio commercials, ran adverts on Citizen TV, prepared promotional caps, T-shirts, bags, billboards and fliers and revamped the AGPO website.

Members of Parliament had questioned the deliverables by Angwenyi’s company saying that they hadn’t seen the said adverts, yet she had received millions of shillings as payment for her publicity campaign.
