DPP Finds and Exposes where Corruption Money had Been Hidden

Fresh reports emerged on Wednesday of how proceeds from the ongoing corruption scandals were withdrawn from local banks and wired to offshore accounts within days of payment.

According to findings by Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji ,part of the millions lost in the Ruaraka Land scandal has been traced to be hidden in Mauritius. 

Speaking before Senate’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, the DPP disclosed:

“In the Ruaraka issue, some of the withdrawn money has been taken to Mauritius.

“Once cash has been withdrawn, it becomes very difficult to track it,” Haji noted adding that Ksh250 million of the Ruaraka Land was once withdrawn within three days.

The DPP further revealed that at least 10 banks and their officials are being investigated to establish their role in National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.

Mr Haji noted  that they have since written a letter to the Mauritius government to facilitate, through legal assistance, to have that money returned to the Central Bank of Kenya.

He disclosed that they urged the Mauritius government to repatriate any suspects who may escape to their country so that they can be prosecuted in Kenya.

However, he wondered how the banks involved in the transactions of the millions allowed such amounts of money to go through their systems without raising a flag with the CBK.

Haji said a team comprising officials from the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and National Intelligence Service (NIS) has been constituted to determine how the money was moved.
