Just like it happened to former EACC commissioners Mumo Matemu, Prof Onsongo and Dr Keino the NYS Director General good man Nelson Githinji was forced to resign over massive corruption in NYS. The plan is to clean the name of a powerful Cabinet Secretary.
Dr Nelson Githinji stepped aside after DPP Keriako Tobiko ordered for his immediate prosecution for trying blocking a probe into a conspiracy to steal Sh695 million alongside Planning PS Peter Mangiti..
In a statement to newsrooms on Monday evening, Githinji insisted on his innocence and the more reason he stepped aside.
â€œToday, sections of the media have reported that the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko, has recommended that I be charged with a misdemeanor of obstructing my Deputy Adan Gedo Harakhe from performing his duties,â€ Part of the statement read.
â€œWith a clear conscience, my respect of the rule of law and our Constitution and with my abiding faith in our judicial system, I have decided to step aside as the Director General of National Youth Service. My stepping aside will allow me to focus on protecting my long record of selfless public service.â€ Githinji added.
He reluctantly thanked President Uhuru and DP Ruto for appointing him to head NYS.
“I take this opportunity to thank our President and Deputy President for their faith in giving me this patriotic assignment. I give them my assurance that in the fullness of time, the judicial process will show that I was faithful to my oath of office and never let them and the country down.”
