Omollo through her lawyer Stephen Ligunya, filed a petition in court requesting the law institution to grant her access to the Sh6.8 million in the account on a quarterly basis, to help fend for her family who are struggling to meet the basic expenses.

The embattled Omollo claimed that she was struggling to cater for food, housing and school needs.

“The applicants have been deprived of the means to provide for their reasonable living expenses and basic needs which has caused them and their dependents undue hardships,” remarked Omollo.

According to the former Public Principal PS, who is facing corruption allegations over stolen NYS funds, anti-money laundering law allows the court to do a revision on the freeze orders issued to a suspect if he or she cannot afford reasonable living expenses in regards to hardships outweighing the loss of the frozen finances.

Omollo uses children's account to hide money

In September last year, it was revealed that the former chief had used her children’s bank account to avoid detection in the corruption scandal.

Investigations had pointed out that Sh20 million had been deposited to accounts that were registered to Sheela Mbogo, Stephanie Mbogo and Shalom Kamwetu.

“That on or about the 20th day of April 2018 … the accounts received Sh20 million suspected to be proceeds of crime or money laundering from the NYS,” read a part of the court papers during a past hearing.

Detectives behind the case further highlighted that the ex-PS had made deposits of Sh900,000.
