Court of appeal upholds chandi jamwa's 12-year jail term
Appeared on: 15 Jan 2018

The Court of Appeal has upheld former NSSF boss, David Chandi Jamwa's 12-year jail term handed to him by the Anti-Corruption Court in 2011 for causing the Fund a financial loss of over sh2.7b after selling bonds before their maturity dates to the defunct Crane Bank.

The verdict means Jamwa will have to remain behind bars until 2023. He has also been barred from holding a public office for 10 years.

In 2011, Jamwa was sentenced to a dozen years behind bars by then Anti-Corruption Court judge John Bosco Katutsi after he found him guilty of the charge.

However, Jamwa appealed his conviction and sentence at the Court of Appeal, which also granted him bail, pending determination of his sentence.
