National Youth Service (NYS) scandal key suspect Ben Gethi’s mother wants investigations into the Sh791 million scam conducted afresh.

In a letter to Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge, Charity Wangui wants this done on grounds that her companies were erroneously mentioned in the scandal that saw Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru resign from office.

Wangui claimed the Banking Fraud Investigation Unit made false accounting and linked her to the NYS scam, adding there is no time her companies inter-related to the defrauded amount.

Thorough perusal

Early this year, Wangui denied owning properties that the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) earmarked for seizure as it sought to recover the money stolen from the NYS.

Through lawyer Njoroge Kimani, Wangui said she has done an independent verification after thorough perusal of the related accounting documents and found out massive fabrications.

She said they had perused the transaction records and verified that NYS awarded a contract to supply fuel to Horizon Ltd.

“Since money laundering  falls within the banking activities, we seek your intervention if really business done amounts to money laundering,” said Wangui. She said she felt and believed ARA is misguided.
