In Summary
  • The agency said from investigations into their bank statements and documents concerning the accounts, it was established that the three and their business entities and associates received funds fraudulently from NYS split in several transactions.

The Ngirita family, which has been accused of receiving millions of shillings from the National Youth Service, failed to demonstrate how they acquired properties and money that is subject to forfeiture to the government.

In a reply filed in court, Assets Recovery Agency said the family has not demonstrated or tabled any evidence to support claims that they secured contracts with NYS, supplied goods or even paid any taxes to the government on income made.

The agency further said the family — Phyllis Ngirita, Lucy Wambui and Jeremiah Gichina — has not attached trading licences or contracts to support claims that they genuinely made the money being targeted.

Mr Fredrick Musyoki, an investigator, further said the funds were fraudulently obtained because there is no evidence of any goods supplied to NYS.

“The respondents failed to produce tangible evidence of the purported legitimate agricultural activities or legitimate business of supply of goods,” Mr Musyoki said.
