Director of public prosecution  Keriako Tobiko has directed devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru to record statement regarding  NYS corruption scandal .

In a statement on Friday Tobiko said that  Waiguru will be required to record a statement over KSh791 million National Youth Service (NYS) scandal and alleged conspiracy to steal  Ksh 695,450,000.

“However, the CS has not recorded a statement regarding this matter. It is important that the CS records a statement,” the DPP said

Tobiko also directed  the Ethics and Anti corruption Commission to take up the matter with other prosecution agencies since the said  fraud falls under EACC.

“I  have therefore directed that EACC be invited  to join the prosecution team  to participate in the review of the file in order to determine matters falling under its legal mandate.”Tobiko said.

Tobiko indicated that initial investigations revealed  that crimes of anti money laundering and organized crimes were committed and have not been investigated fully.

He also stated that evidence have revealed that huge amounts of money were deposited and withdrawn by suspected individuals and companies.

He added  that only two suspects out of  twenty have been interrogated and recorded statements as potential suspects.

Last week, Mr Tobiko received  the file containing  names of the individuals alleged to be behind the scandal from the DCI.

Ms Waiguru, who first revealed the names, said investigations showed that Sh791 million was lost in the suspicious dealings.
