MPs order for the arrest of NYS suspect Kabura

MPs directed the IG Joseph Boinnet to arrest Josephine Kabura, one of the key suspects in the Sh791 million NYS scandal.

 

Members of Parliament on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 directed the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet to arrest Josephine Kabura, one of the key suspects in the Sh791 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.

The National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) issued the summons of arrest after Kabura failed to appear before them to shed more light on the loss of the NYS millions.

This is the third time the businesswoman has failed to appear before the PAC in connection to the scandal.

“We cannot accord Kabura another excuse since this is the third time she has failed to show up without valid reasons,” PAC Chairman Nicholas Gumbo said.

Kabura has already appeared before the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over a controversial affidavit she swore linking several people including former devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru into the deals that led to the loss of the NYS millions.

Waiguru has since denied the claims and maintained her innocence over the scam insisting that she has never met Kabura.

A special audit done by Auditor General Edward Ouko revealed in June that Kabura received Sh1.3 billion in the NYS scam.
