MPs ques­tion former bank driver sus­pected of shar­ing Sh791m NYS loot

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Parliament -

MPs yes­ter­day ques­tioned how a mere driver turned into an overnight mil­lion­aire at the height of the Sh791 mil­lion Na­tional Youth Ser­vice heist.

Mem­bers of the Pub­lic Ac­counts Com­mit­tee asked how John Kago, a sus­pended Kenya Com­mer­cial Bank driver, owns ex­pen­sive prop­erty in Nairobi and a fleet of high-end ve­hi­cles. Kago de­nied own­ing the mil­lions of shillings wired into his ac­count by NYS sus­pects Josephine Kabura and Ben Gethi. MPs con­fronted Kago with a trail of trans­ac­tions worth Sh346 mil­lion wired through his ac­count be­tween Jan­uary and April 2015.

Kago re­ceived Sh130 mil­lion from Gethi and Sh156 from Kabura through his ac­count at KCB and Fam­ily Bank.

How­ever, he ac­knowl­edged only re­ceiv­ing Sh60 mil­lion from Kabura as ‘soft-loan’ to ex­pand his busi­ness.
