Just like the First NYS Scandal, the second National Youth Service (NYS) scandal is also touted as the biggest in the history of the youth empowerment program. It was exposed by one of the local dailies on May 12, 2018.
Initially, KSh 10.5 billion was reported to have been stolen at the NYS, but the figure was later revised to KSh 9 billion after investigations. Over 40 suspects were summoned by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for questioning as senior officials stepped aside to pave way for investigations. Investigations on this matter are still ongoing as of the time of this publication.
