DPP WITHDRAWS CHARGES OF 11 NYS SUSPECTS

NYS suspects freed

11 suspects, who had been charged with the  National Youth Service (NYS) scandal season two have had their charges dropped after the Director of Public Services(DPP) filed an application for their discharge.

The suspects include Sammy Michuki, the former Deputy Director General and Rogers Nzioka.

The DPP made the application to have the charges of the 11 suspects dropped when the accused persons pleaded afresh to the charges during which three NYS case related files were consolidated.

The charges have been withdrawn against them under section 87 (a) of the Criminal Procedure Code.

A total of 54 suspects including  Lilian Omollo (Principal Secretary, Ministry of Service, Youth and Gender Affairs) and Richard Ndubai (Director General, NYS) were in June charged with NYS scandal season two

KCB was fined Sh149.5 million, Standard Chartered Bank (Sh77.5 million), Equity Bank (Sh89.5 million), Cooperative Bank (Sh20 million) and DTB (Sh56 million).
