Gethi probed in cam­era after death threats

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

NYS scan­dal prime sus­pect Ben Gethi, who re­ported re­ceiv­ing death threats, was ques­tioned in pri­vate to en­hance his safety.

The Pub­lic Ac­counts Com­mit­tee said the grilling was closed to the media to al­low Gethi to give in­for­ma­tion, which he had said was sen­si­tive.

He is be­ing ques­tioned over his in­volve­ment in the Sh791 mil­lion NYS scam in which for­mer of­fi­cials, in­clud­ing for­mer Devolution CS Anne Waig­uru and Adan Harakhe (the NYS deputy di­rec­tor gen­eral) have been im­pli­cated. Gethi filed the com­plaint at the Park­lands po­lice sta­tion on Mon­day morn­ing, OB 2/10/10/2016, say­ing he re­ceived the threats at the week­end.

He said he was warned that he was the tar­get for elim­i­na­tion, be­cause of the con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion he has.

Gethi said in his state­ment that a man on a mo­tor­cy­cle handed a note with the threats to his driver. He said they con­cerned state­ments he made when he ap­peared be­fore the Pub­lic Ac­counts Com­mit­tee for grilling on the scam. Gethi told the PAC last Tues­day that he had de­tails of com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween in­ves­ti­ga­tors and Waig­uru that im­pli­cated them in tam­per­ing with in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
