Kibet told the Public Accounts Committee in a written submission that he received the money from Kabura, which he assumed came from Ben Gethi.

The deputy president’s aide distanced himself from Kabura whose name appears as the depositor, claiming he had requested Gethi for a loan of KSh 2 million to assist a patient going for treatment in India.

“I thought that Ben Gethi had deposited to my account because he was the one I had requested money from,” he said quoted by the Nation.

Kibet reportedly received KSh 500,000 on January 17 from Kabura and KSh 1 million on March 20, a deposit he only noticed when he went to withdraw money.

“I did not know whether he is the one who sent her to deposit that amount,”he said.

Kibet claims he only learnt that Kabura had deposited the money when he was summoned to record a statement with the police.

The written submission contradicts his earlier statements that he only received money from Gethi and not from the chief suspect Josephine Kabura.

Deputy president William Ruto criticised former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Waiguru for linking his allies into the NYS scandal instead of taking responsibility.

Waiguru showed proof linking Farouk Kibet and Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen to the NYS scam.
