The High Court has ordered former PS Lilian Omollo to forfeit Sh. 33 million to the government after failing to explain their source.

In her ruling, Justice Mumbi Ngugi said that Ms. Omollo did not sufficiently explain the source of the money. Earlier on, Ms. Omollo had claimed that she made the money from farming, and requested the court to visit her farm in Nyanza region. The court, however, failed to agree to the visit. Ms. Omollo had also said that the money was part of her salary, some of which she earned before joining the government. She also cited gratuity that she said was paid after she left the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad) in 2015.

“The respondents have millions of funds in their accounts and this court has found they are unable to show a legitimate source,” Justice Ngugi ruled. Ms. Lilian Omollo who was the PS for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs was a suspect in the multi billion scandal that involved the National Youth Service.
