National Youth Service (NYS) Director General Richard Ndubai has been arrested amid an ongoing probe into the Ksh. 9 billion scandal at the youth agency. Mr. Ndubai, who stepped aside a week ago to pave the way for investigations into the scandal, was arrested on Sunday night and taken to Muthaiga police station.
His arrest came hours after the Director of Public Prosecutions confirmed receiving investigation files for 10 companies that were allegedly awarded tenders in the Ksh.9 billion NYS scandal.
According to sources, the files contain 40 suspects who are mostly Directors of the companies that were awarded lucrative tenders and paid billions of shillings without actually supplying anything.
“A Team of experienced Prosecutors led by the DPP is currently undertaking final review of the files, ” said the DPP.
Arrest of more suspects is expected to continue from Monday as Ndubai is expected to be interrogated.
This comes at a time when so much pressure has piled on those involved in the scandal to be brought to book and face legal action according to the law.
