Ngirita Family wealth declared proceeds of Crime — Says Assets Recovery Agency

The big name at the center of a multi billion shilling National Youth Service, the Ngirita family, has failed to demonstrate how they acquired properties and money currently under investigations.

The Assets Recovery Agency appearing before the court, said the family has not presented any evidence to support claims that they legally got government tenders to supply goods and services, nor even pay taxes on their income.

The agency also added that the family had not provided nor attached any trading licences or contracts to support claims that they legitimately made the forfeited income.

Mr Fredrick Musyoki, an investigator further said that Ms Phyllis claims to have supplied vegetables such as watermelons, English potatoes, onions, cabbages and green grams worth Sh5.8 million, but an abnormal difference of Sh32 million shillings could not be justified.

“The respondents failed to produce tangible evidence of the purported legitimate agricultural activities or legitimate business of supply of goods,” Mr Musyoki said.

The court was adjourned with the hearing of the case scheduled to be in November 14.
