The development coming as the National Youth Sector Alliance called for the freezing of assets of individuals mentioned in the NYS, NCPD and Youth enterprise Fund scandals.
The youth lobby group has threatened to mobilize youths across the country to boycott paying taxes if the government fails to act on the perpetrators of the alleged scandals.
More than 10 billion shillings is said to have been lost in the twin scandals at the NYS and NCPD.
Pressure has been mounting on the government to act firmly on the perpetrators of graft within the government. On Saturday, the Kenya Private Sector Alliance called for the prosecution of those who will be found culpable.
In a statement, KEPSA said the reports on suspected fraud in government agencies have been depressing to anybody who cares about the future of Kenya.
KEPSA pointed an accusing finger to institutions that fail to follow through on investigations and prosecutions of the culprits who would later go off scot-free.
