Court Tries Suspects in Kenya's Biggest Corruption Case

Twenty of the 54 suspects involved in the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal spent the night at various police stations in Nairobi after police denied them bail. The NYS scandal was a corruption case within Kenya's Ministry of Devolution and Planning. President Kenyatta set up the service as a paramilitary training institution to lower high youth unemployment. Between U.S.$8 million to U.S.$100 million was reportedly stolen from the ministry's budget. At the center of the scandal is the ministry's former cabinet secretary, Anne Waiguru.
