How PS Omollo used her children to hide NYS corruption scandal

PS Omollo's children dragged in multi billion NYS scandal

Former Public Service Principal Secretary Lillian Omollo

According to detectives unraveling the heist, Ms. Omollo at one point made a cash deposit of Sh20 million to accounts registered to Sheela Mbogo, Stephanie Mbogo, and Shalom Kamwetu.

In a report by the Business Daily, this was conducted in the months when the grand theft at NYS was discovered.

The Asset Recovery Agency (ARA) made the revelations to the court stating: "All the accounts held at Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) are in names of the sons and daughters of Lilian Muthoni Mbogo."

“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,” the court papers read in part.

Investigators divulged that the PS made deposits of Sh900,000 to evade the financial institution from detecting any unscrupulous activities.

According to the law, financial institutions are required to report to the Financial Reporting Centre when transactions of amounts above Sh1 million are made.

PS Omollo is facing corruption-related charges alongside former NYS Director General Richard. The case will take place from January 7 to 31 next year.
