In Summary
  • Bora Global was paid Sh167 million for supplying foodstuffs, including green grams and powdered milk.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga now wants former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru to explain her links to one of the beneficiaries of millions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.

In an affidavit signed on his behalf by his lawyer, Paul Mwangi, Mr Odinga wants to know Ms Waiguru’s association with one of the directors of a company said to have benefited from the NYS billions.

“During your tenure as the Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Devolution and Planning did you know a person by the name Maria Blessing Nyambura Ng’ang’a? What was the nature of your knowledge and interaction with the said person?

Was the said person known or associated to any of your aides?” reads the affidavit dated February 15.

Ms Ng’ang’a has previously been listed as one of the three directors of a company that pocketed Sh40 million for supplying powdered milk to the para-military institution at the height of the scandal.

The firm, Bora Global Ltd, was among several private companies listed in a letter from the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) to the Devolution Ministry questioning the payments of hundreds of millions.

SUPPLYING POWDERED MILK

Documents showed that the firm received a total of Sh40 million from NYS on May 15, 2015, for supplying powdered milk to the NYS.

Bora Global Ltd was registered on October 31, 2013, with Ms Ng’ang’a, Wilson Waihenya Ngima and Julius Muvea Muinde listed as directors.

Another company trading as Bora Global was paid Sh167 million for supplying foodstuffs, including green grams and powdered milk.

When CBK wrote the letter, the then Devolution and Planning ministry Principal Secretary Peter Mangiti responded by writing to then NYS Director-General Nelson Githinji over the issue.
