In the past 2 weeks, numerous mega corruption scandals have been unearthed pitting Kenyans against President Uhuru Kenyatta due to his indifference towards tackling corruption scandals that have rocked his administration since 2013.
One of the mega corruption scandal exposed involved the National Youth Service [NYS] were reports indicate that the organization lost close to Ksh10 Billion to corrupt government officials in liaison with cartels and unscrupulous businessmen.
Over the weekend it emerged that a fashion designer Monica Kanari and owner of Occasions and Days Ltd received Sh15,306,689 on the morning of December 20, 2016 from NYS and she apparently returned the money. After this story broke out, Kanari was hailed as a true Kenyan patriot and received accolades from all walks of life.
However, a day after the story, reports emerged that Kanari was actually a close ally to former Devolution Secretary and current Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who was in 2015 implicated in looting of NYS together with Josephine Kabura amounting to sh1.9 Billion.
Further digging revealed that Kanari was actually Anne Waiguru’s roommate and close friend while at Egerton University. Moreover, it emerged that Kanari was actually one of Anne Waiguru’s bridesmaid during her wedding to Ex-husband Lawyer Tony Waiguru Njuguna.
This new report casts doubt on Kanari’s honesty with respect to returning sh15 Million especially given a list of people who received similar payments without delivering anything to the NYS has emerged.
