, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 23 – The main suspect in the Sh791 million NYS theft, Josephine Kabura, was on Tuesday being questioned by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives over her explosive affidavit that links ex-CS Anne Waiguru to the scandal.

Kabura arrived at the commission’s offices at Integrity Centre at 11 am in the company of her lawyer Dennis Mosota, a day after Waiguru was questioned over the multi-million shilling National Youth Service (NYS) scam.

Overview
  • She claims to have met Waiguru when she worked at the Ministry of Finance, specifically in the IFMIS directorate.
  • It was then, she says, that she started carrying out "small jobs" for Waiguru which eventually culminated in her appointment as the "sole merchant assigned to deliver all (NYS) road materials."
  • It was in this role that Kabura claims to have met Adan Harakhe whom she says expedited payments to her companies in his role as (Authority to Incur Expenditure) AIE holder.

The EACC wants Kabura to explain more about her affidavit in which she implicates Waiguru and many other people in the scandal, including two newspaper journalists.

Kabura who is facing charges of theft of the Sh791 million swore under oath that Waiguru – contrary to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission’s assertions – was not blameless in the whole affair but was in fact the architect behind the scheme.

Kabura who says her companies – Form Home Builders, Roof and All Trading and Reinforced Concrete Technologies – received the Sh791 million as payment for the supply of road construction material for the Kibera and Mukuru slums, says Waiguru engaged her and even oversaw the registration of her companies.
