Besieged Ngiritas exposed further in fake family foundation
A poster of an event by the Ngirita family that has been circulating on social media citing the Kenya Red Cross as one of the partners is a fake.
This is according to the Kenya Red Cross which has advised members of the public to disregard it.
The poster had indicated that Kenya Red Cross was one of their partners for an event by Ngirita Foundation that was to be held on Saturday at Mirera Primary School in Naivasha.

Two Ngirita siblings – Ann and Jeremiah – were used as the face of the medical drive.
The Ngiritas came into national limelight after it was discovered that through their company they fraudulently received Sh59 million from the National Youth Service (NYS).
The mother, Lucy Ngirita, her daughters Ann and Phyllis – and son Jeremiah Gichini are among the suspects implicated in the Sh469 million NYS scam.
The family is still being held in remand while their mother was recently admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
