The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

Con­troller of Bud­get Agnes Od­hi­ambo (pic­tured) has de­nied frus­trat­ing the pay­ment of re­tired teach­ers’ pen­sions. Od­hi­ambo told Nakuru High Court judge Janet Mulwa that the claims by Di­rec­tor of Pen­sion Shem Nyakutu that she has failed to re­ceive the files were not true. “We have re­ceived 474 claims from his of­fice and 298 files have been ap­proved for pay­ment,” Od­hi­ambo said. Jus­tice Mulwa or­dered Nyakutu to col­lect 1,981 claims pro­cessed by the TSC, process them within three weeks and for­ward them to Od­hi­ambo to start pay­ments.
