Former Youth and Gender PS Lilian Omollo was on Monday in court to reverse the decision freezing her accounts holding Ksh 30 million.

In her defense, Ms. Liliam Omollo said that the Ksh 30 million held in six different accounts was part of her hard-earned salary.

She went further to state that she already earned some before joining the Youth and gender docket and after leaving her previous employer Nepad in 2015.

Stephen Ligunya, the lawyer representing the former Permanent Secretary defended his client saying part of her salary as PS was channeled through the same accounts.

He continued by reminding the court that NYS received a clean bill of health from the auditor general himself.

The state through the Asset and Recovery Agency successfully applied to freeze the accounts suspecting they were proceeds of the NYS scandal.

Ms. Omollo’s lawyer told the court that the money was earnings from the sale of their Rarieda’s house and earnings from her husband.

He presented receipts to back up his client’s claims that the accounts were active way before the scandal.

Five of the frozen accounts are under Equity Bank holding over Ksh 13 million, Ksh 6 million under Diamond Trust and three others under her children holding Ksh 11 million.

The case is set to be mentioned again on March 25th
