Another NYS scandal uncovered

New NYS scam discovered

NYS Headquarters

Detectives from the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission have uncovered a scam involving the National Youth Service (NYS).

EACC flagged suspicious payments linked to the NYS, according to a petition filed in court.

The anti graft commission sought to freeze an account belonging to a trader who reported to the matter to the EACC.

The commission reasonably suspects that the said sum is public property being embezzled by public officials at the National Youth Service through remittance to the respondent’s bank account,” the application stated.

According to the trader large sums of money were deposited into her account on two occasions between December and February, 2020.

Suspicious transactions

EACC stated that investigations had established the funds remitted to the account of Emily Nyambura were not supported by any documentation.

Documents filed in court indicated that Ksh1,895,366 was credited to Nyambura’s account on December 30 for alleged supply of bread to the agency.

Nyambura, who is a trader, said she was shocked to receive the money since she had not made any supplies to the NYS.

After she directed her bank to reverse back the money, but on February 20, another amount of Ksh1,862,687 was remitted into her account.
