Nyali MP Mohammed Ali popularly known as JichoPevu for his daring exposes on criminal syndicates is back to redeem his image with yet another list that breaks a wall. There has been many speculations that the NYS investigations has been skewed with bias and favoritism to cushion the major players from being prosecuted instead the minor or small fishes have been sacrificed.
For the past three weeks, 42 suspects in the Sh10B theft including NYS Boss Ndubai And PS Omollo have been held in jail. It came as a reprieve however when the high court released them rifts on a Sh5M bond each today. However, this doesn’t stop the investigations neither shut the questions as to who exactly is being shielded. According to the investigative reporter cum MP, the key players have been deliberately ignored in the investigations in a coverup ploy.
“Evidence has been brought to my attention that now points to the alleged involvement of other senior government officials, banks and business people whose names have been studiously avoided both by investigators and the media. These people and institutions, it would seem from the evidence I have been given, were involved in NYS1, and may very well be involved in this second series of thefts from the National Youth Service.” Declares Moha.
He goes ahead to list the following prominent persons whom he insists , should also be investigated as key suspects in the NYS scam given that the evidence he holds points at them being involved.
1. Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru
2. Former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri
3. Businessman Ben Gethi
4. Former DCI Ndegwa Muhoro
5. Former NYS Director Nelson Githinji

7. Current Health CS Sicily Kariuki
8. Police inspector Mike Julius King’oo Muia

10. Peter Gathecha – Petro Kenya Oil Company Limited
Notably, Waiguru was found to be staying in a house belonging to PS Omollo as her residence in Kirinyaga though she quickly moved out as soon as the investigations heightened and sleuths had hit the road. Waiguru was mentioned as the architect of the NYS 1 theft that has remained unresolved to date.
Moha has also given a list of suspicious companies who were grandly involved in the heist but not included in the roundup:

“Who owns these companies? What business did they do with NYS? How much did they benefit from the NYS? Are they owned by front men and women? Who is behind these owners?” He posed.
While hinting at a possibility that these companies are owned directly or in proxies by state officials, Moha alludes, “It must be stated that if there are among the owners, state and public officers, then this should be taken very seriously, given the unfair advantages that these people have in getting information to secure tenders for themselves, their partners and family members, and a network of corrupt individuals. Conflict of interest may no longer be controversial to some Kenyans, but to me, it is the very reason why this money is being stolen.”
On yet another big elephant, the banks involved in the fraud, he didn’t come out clear but threw hints on the ones involved, “There also are two banks, one based in Ridgeways, and one in the city centre, where very suspicious transactions took place. I will not name them here yet.” Barclays Bank And Consolidated Bank are the only ones who’ve been openly mentioned while the rest kept a secret. It doesn’t make any sense as to why even though CBK Governor is on record admitting that some Bank managers are under prober over their involvement in the fraud scheme.
He also touched lightly on some cartel, “I have also learnt of a cartel that calls itself the “Othaya mafia”, whose involvement in this scandal is clear. I will come back with more information on the same in due course.”
“In this day and age of handshakes, the role of the whistleblower has been put to rest. If those who whistle blew before me are unwilling to do so any more, then Mohamed Ali will do it himself. I have always and will always stand with Kenyans in defending their interests, and will do so without fear or favor.” He concludes.
