As the latest NYS scandal continues to unravel, millions of tax payer’s money seems to have changed hands in air deals that dwarf the infamous ‘gunia’ case of Josephine Kabura.

Kabura’s case was like a blockbuster script. The confession by the hairdresser that she walked away with millions in sacks captured the nation’s attention.

Then enters Ann Wambere Wanjiku Ngirita.

According to the Nation, Ngirita is the new Kabura, starring in the unending series of NYS briefcase ‘tenderpreneurs’ after she allegedly pocketed Sh59 million.

How did it happen you ask? Here is the breakdown.

  1. To start it off, Ngirita’s firm has no office or other business premises
  2. She walked to the NYS college in Gilgil and asked if she could supply foodstuff
  3. To her name was a Certificate of Registration of Business and a KRA tax compliance certificate. Her business had no office or other business premises.
  4. But after scandal broke, She says she did not tender anything and has never supplied goods or services to the government
  5. Ngirita claims she does not know where the goods were sourced, their cost and whether they were delivered at all. 
  6. She however admits to personally signing the invoices. 
  7. She operates three bank accounts: Annwaw Investment, Ann Wambere and Ann Wambere Wanjiku Investments.
  8. Her mother owns two other firms – Waluco and Ngiwaco Investments
  9. The companies are among 10 whose directors were summoned by detectives.

So what are Kenyans saying about it all?
