Gethi’s mother moves to court to stop prosecution over NYS money laundering
NYS scam suspect Ben Gethi’s mother has moved to court to block DPP Keriako Tobiko from charging her with money laundering.
Charity Wangui is among individuals suspected to have purchased assets to launder funds from the National Youth Service.
She was named a respondent in the Sh791 million NYS scandal alongside Gethi’s sister Jedida Wangari and others.
The two, who filed a suit at Milimani law courts on Wednesday, said Tobiko’s move to prefer additional charges against them was “malicious and in bad faith”.
Wangui admitted to owning some of the properties listed in a suit by the Assets Recovery Agency but maintained she was not involved in the scandal.
She had disowned the properties in a case filed at the High Court in Milimani, Nairobi, in January.
Among 26 suspects in the case are Josephine Kabura , Patrick Ogolla , John Ndungu, Samwel Wachenje alias Sam Mwadime, Antony Gethi, Paul Kinuthia, John Hope Vandamme, Martin Wanjihi.
