The High Court has declined anticipatory bail applications by two NYS suspects who are linked to the Sh9 billion National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.
The two are James Thuita Nderitu (Director at Firstling Supplies Limited) and Bernard Masiga Ayienga (Senior Finance Officer at the Ministry of Youth and Gender) were seeking an anticipatory bail to evade arrest and possible prosecution.
Lady Justice Grace Ngenye Macharia dismissed the application and gave the detectives at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) go ahead to arrest them.
“I cannot hesitate to find that this application is unmerited. It does not meet the threshold the grant for anticipatory bail to the applicant. The same is dismissed with orders as to no cost,” Judge Ngenye Macharia ruled.
