A Nairobi Anti- Corruption Court has slapped warrant of arrest against former National Youth Service (NYS) Deputy Director General, Adan Harakhe, and former tender committee chairman in the Ministry of Devolution Hassan Noor for failing to appear in court over the Ksh 1.6 billion NYS scam.

The order was issued after they failed to appear before Senior Principal Magistrate Felix Kombo on Friday to plead to corruption charges.

They are facing eight economic related crimes charges together with former Devolution Principal Secretary, Eng. Peter Mangiti, former NYS Finance Director, Samuel Wachenje, and 18 others.

Former Devolution PS, Mangiti, is accused of abuse of office by executing the payment of the said amounts to Blue Star Enterprises.

Other 12 accused persons of the tender committee at the Ministry of Devolution wilfully failed to comply with the Public Procurement Law. They are accused of approving restricted tender in purchasing automotive training materials while requirements of such restricted tenders were not satisfied.

Other eight tender committee members are being accused of failure to comply with procurement procedures by approving the purchase of engineering automotive training materials without technical evaluation being undertaken.

Selesio Karanja, a supply chain assistant at the NYS, is accused of fraudulently entering the name of Dama Services Ltd in the tender opening register whereas Dama Ltd had not been approved for the tender to procure engineering automotive training materials.

Five persons, who are members of the tender evaluation committee at the Ministry of Devolution, wilfully failed to comply with procurement law by failing to undertake technical evaluation of the Blue Star Enterprises tender.
