What you need to know:

  • About 40 companies are said to be involved in the NYS fraud and are under investigation.

  • While NYS has pumped billions into fake entities, the Nation has learnt that genuine suppliers are facing ruin as auctioneers descend on their property.

  • Annwaw Investments, Kunjiwa Enterprises, and JerryCarthy Enterprises are only listed as business names, and not companies

  • The directors of Firstling Supplies are listed as James Thuita Nderitu and Yvonne Wanjiku Ngugi, with the former being the majority shareholder.

Records of some of the entities believed to have been fraudulently paid Sh9 billion from the National Youth Service are incomplete or missing from the company registry.
