Some money – a whooping sum of about Sh11.9 Million – has been found. The money is said to have been irregularly invoiced to Mutahi Ngunyi’s company – The Consulting House.
The Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi confirmed that the whooping amount was discovered after a systematic review.
Through a letter, he claimed that the money has links to the infamous National Youth Service (NYS) multi-billion scandal.
In the letter, Gender and Youth Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki Ngunyi admitted that following an audit of his company’s account details, they discovered the cash was deposited without an invoice from the firm.
According to the letter, Ngunyi said:
“There is a payment totalling Sh11.9 Million, which we did not invoice any of our clients for. Since none of our other clients has claimed these funds, kindly confirm that this is the said over-payment raised by the Auditor General’s Reports”.
He further claimed the deposit was made resentfully to ruin the reputation and creativity of his company at NYS.
The political analyst reassured that his firm is willing to pay back the full amount to the government.
“My instruction is to refund the money to GoK with instantaneous immediacy and not to exceed 15 days from the date of receipt of this letter,” Ngunyi noted.
Earlier, the Auditor-General Edward Ouko alleged that Ngunyi received Sh12.5 Million, which was more than was supposed to cover for service in creating a strategy for the NYS restructuring.
Ouko added that The Consulting House got two contracts — one signed in March 2014 for Sh40 Million and another for Sh50 Million.
Mr Ngunyi finished the first job and received his reward. But it was found that he collected Sh62.5 Million in the second contract, which was 25 per cent more than the supposed amount of the deal – Sh50 Million.
In response Ngunyi dismissed the allegation, insisting he did not have to carry out an audit of the company’s accounts.
He assured that if discovered that any monies were irregularly paid to his company, then he would promptly refund the cash to the Treasury or NYS.
