Phyllis Njeri Ngirita, one of the suspects in the NYS graft case is a troubled mother. Her son might be forced to drop out of school if he doesn’t pay the prestigious Pembroke House School a debt amounting to Ksh3.4 million.
Her son hasn’t gone to school for two terms now.
Ngirita’s accounts were frozen and she has no other means to get school fees for her son. In her affidavit filed by her lawyer Evans Ondiek, the mother says,
I have been subjected to untold suffering since my KCB account in Gilgil was frozen in 2018. The order has caused undue hardship to my family and paralysed the education of my children.
Speaking to K24 yesterday outside Milimali law courts after Justice Mumbi Ngugi pushed her application to allow her to withdraw Sh800,00 from her account, she said,
Mimi ni mstakiwa wa NYS scandal na mtoto hajastakiwa. Nimeteseka ya kutosha na sina kitu ingine naeza fanya kama mtoto wangu hasomi.Nimefika mwisho na serikali.
She added that the government was unfair to her family (mother, brother, and sister) saying they are not the only ones who stole the money but there are other people involved in the scandal.
Ngirita said her account has Sh800,000 which she borrowed as a loan and wants the court to allow her access to the funds.
Her case will be heard on February 10, next month.
