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

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.
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
“Sai nitatoka hapa na huyu mtoto twende nyumbani na
matatu… gari yangu inaozea police station na nilinunua na malipo ya pole pole,” she
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).
