Details of the only entrepreneur who returned millions of the Sh10 Billion NYS scam

Designer who returned NYS millions for services she never offered

Monica Kanari who owns Occasions and Days Ltd received Sh15,306,689 (reference numberFT1635557CKV) on 20 December 2016 from NYS for services she did not offer to the disgraced institution.

Speaking to The Standard, Ms Kanari disclosed that she promptly wrote an email to the ousted Youth PS Lilian Omollo, informing her of the erroneous transaction and seeking a reversal of the same.

“Kindly note that I have given my bank instructions for the monies to be returned to account 1000303301. I will forward the confirmation slip once I receive it,” Kanari wrote.


The award winning entrepreneur would follow through and ensure that the transaction is reversed even as others were having a field day looting billions of public funds.

In another communication, Kanari wrote: “As I promised, find attached a copy of the confirmation of the swift transfer. This is to confirm that the monies sent to us erroneously of Sh15,306,689.00 has been returned to the Central Bank account number 1000303301 on December 23, 2016”.

As she was doing the right thing, others were on a looting spree. Standing out in the list is 30 year old Ms Anne Ngirita who reportedly received Sh 59 Million for supplying air to the scandal-riddled institution.

The scam has attracted an outrage among Kenyans and has since seen senior government officials sent home.
