I want Sh 5.4 million to pay for my daughter’s first term school fee – NYS thieve LILIAN OMOLLO tells COURT

Tuesday February 5, 2019-Former Youth Principal Secretary, Lilian Omollo, has pleaded with the High Court to change the orders freezing her accounts.

Last year, High Court ordered the freezing of her accounts after she was linked to National Youth Service (NYS) scandal where billions of shillings were looted.

The accounts which were frozen were in Consolidated and Equity Banks.

The accounts had a total of Sh 33 million shillings.

Now Omollo, through her lawyer Stephen Ligunya, said the orders obtained by the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) to freeze her accounts were very punitive.

Mr Ligunya said Ms Omollo took out a mortgage that requires servicing, and needs cash for utility bills.

The bills, according to the papers filed in court, include Sh150, 000 for a loan, school fees totalling Sh5.2 million, additional school fees for three dependants totalling Sh139, 800 and domestic workers’ salaries amounting to Sh219, 000.

Other payments include Sh150,000 for Ms Omollo’s elderly parents, Sh102,079 in utility bills, Sh449,000 for servicing and maintaining vehicles, Sh150,000 for food and Sh210,000 for other bills.

 But in a response ARA said it had reasonable grounds to believe that the Sh33 million in question was stolen from NYS.

The ARA also said Ms Omollo can service her loans and pay her bills because “as far as we are concerned, she is a farmer in Siaya County”.
“Ms Omollo is still earning half her principal secretary salary, which is about Sh340,000 a month,” said ARA lawyer Mohamed Adow.
The court will rule on the matter on February 14.
