The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

For­mer National Youth Ser­vice deputy di­rec­tor gen­eral Clare Lwali was granted Sh600,000 bail yes­ter­day in a case in which she is charged with fraud.

She was granted an al­ter­na­tive Sh1 mil­lion bond.

Lwali was ar­raigned be­fore an anti-cor­rup­tion court fac­ing charges of abuse of of­fice and wil­ful fail­ure to com­ply with the pro­cure­ment laws. She de­nied the charges. The prose­cu­tion says she used her of­fice to im­prop­erly con­fer a ben­e­fit on Naro Moru River Lodge with­out the ap­proval of the ten­der com­mit­tee. The Sh4,476,000 commitment for ac­com­mo­da­tion and con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties was be­yond the limit in law, the court heard.

The case will be men­tioned on Novem­ber 29.
