The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has opposed bail application by the accused persons in Ksh 8 billion National Youth Service-NYS scandal.
The accused will be in custody until Monday 4th June, 2018 when court will rule on their bail application.
On Tuesday, over 20 suspects arrested in connection with the Ksh8 billion scandal at the National Youth Service were arraigned in court to answer to graft charges.
Youth affairs Principal Secretary Lilian Mbugua Omollo and NYS Director General Richard Ndubai were among the suspects facing charges for abuse of office and conspiracy to commit economic crimes through corruption.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogot, Youth affairs Principal Secretary Lilian Mbugua Omollo was charged with five counts including, conspiracy to commit economic crimes, abuse of office and fraudulently making payments for goods not supplied.
Meanwhile, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has applied for warrants of arrest for the 30 NYS scam suspects who failed to turn up in court on Tuesday to plead to the corruption charges.
On the other hand, the office wants the court to order them to surrender to Director of Criminal Investigations headquarters for processing of their files before appearing in court.
