Phyllis Ngirita, a suspect in the NYS scandal, has pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to come to her aid since her son is suffering.
Ngirita said her son has been out of school for a while but the courts have refused to grant her access to Sh700,000 that she acquired through a loan to educate her child.
"My child has not gone to school for two terms now. He asks me questions I can't answer. So all I want is to talk to the President because we voted for him as women to prosper but here we are, suffering.
“Some people are causing others to suffer using lies. Why is my child suffering? If I was given my passport I would try to take the child back to Germany where he will receive some help," she stated.
Last week, Ngirita said that ever since her accounts were frozen, her son has been forced to drop out of school and is no longer fluent in German.
She added that the boy, who is in Class Seven, is slowly becoming a chokoraa (street kid) and now speaks in Kikuyu and Kiswahili and ‘some bits’ of English.
“Miaka mbili tumeteseka. Mtoto aliacha shule, anaelekea kuwa chokora… Wamekataa kabisa kufungua hiyo account. So mtoto ata hawezi ongea Kijerumani, anaongea Kikuyu na Kiswahili ama Kizungu,” she remarked.
Ngirita said that she is now forced to use public means of transport (matatus) yet her vehicles are gathering dust at the Naivasha Police Station.
“Sai nitatoka hapa na huyu mtoto twende nyumbani na matatu… gari yangu inaozea police station na nilinunua na malipo ya pole pole,” she said.
Ngirita had filed an application seeking access to her account at KCB to pay school fees for her son but her application was opposed by Chief Inspector Paul Waweru who argued that she did not give compelling reasons for the order to be lifted.
The Assets Recovery Authority (ARA) also urged the high court to decline a plea to re-open the bank account and wants the Ngirita family charged with fraudulently receiving millions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS).
