Cop at Jogoo police station arrested over Ksh.10.5B ‘lost’ in NYS scam
Detectives have arrested an officer from Jogoo Police Station over Ksh.10.5billion that was ‘lost’ in the National Youth Service (NYS) corruption scam.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Corporal Caroline Atieno Mango is accused of deliberately failing to declare and remit taxes in four different companies.
Detectives at the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) police unit noted that the four entities; Maanti Logistics, Ajol General Enterprises, Carrotexx Enterprise and Jupecar Garments, all dealt with general supplies of office equipment.
In September 2017, a letter seen by Citizen Digital addressed to the Devolution Permanent Secretary from DCI, requested for documents to assist with an ongoing investigation of suspected misappropriation of funds from NYS accounts.
Two months later, in November, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission also sought assistance from the Kenya Revenue Authority in tax audits of six firms under investigation.
The said companies were under probe over the transaction with the Devolution Ministry through the NYS.
Interestingly, three of the companies had listed the same person as their director only with a different middle name.
Maanti Logistics whose Director is listed as Caroline Mango was paid Ksh. 26.8 million.
Carrotexx Enterprise also lists Caroline Mango as its Director but with her middle name indicated as Atieno got nearly Ksh. 1.9 million.
Jupecar Garments with Director indicated as Caroline Mango with middle name Ajow got Ksh. 5.6million.
All the three variations of the name have the same ID number and between them received a total of Ksh. 34.5 million in the same bank account.
Similarly, Sallijow Enterprises, Iantex Enterprises and Pejows Agencies have a common name, Ajow, but this time with different directors and ID numbers.
They received a total of Ksh. 53.5million through the same bank.
