Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo has shared his perspective on why the high profile NYS and Goldenberg scandals are still yet to be resolved in spite of investigations being done.
He said that there was always the danger of the prosecutors working on the cases being compromised.Speaking on Sunday in an exclusive interview with K24’s Anne Kiguta, Kabogo appeared to draw a link between the lack of resolution to poor investigations that lead to weak cases.
“Why is it that the NYS case has never been completed. Goldenberg scandal. If you want to help criminals, you take shoddy investigations to court. Those prosecutors could be compromised. They are human, ” the former governor said.
The NYS and Goldenberg scandals remain scars on the President Uhuru Kenyatta and former president Daniel Arap Moi administrations.
A commission of enquiry was formed to investigate the Goldenberg scandal.
Kamlesh Pattni, who was said to have been the architect of the multi-billion shillings scandal was forced to surrender the then Grand Regency Hotel to the government.
Others who were part of the underhand scheme went scotfree.
President Uhuru Kenyatta administration is working on the NYS scandal with arrests and prosecutions being made but so far no successful convictions have been made.
