Gethi probed in camera after death threats
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.
