Ngamau, the managing Director of Quorandum Company Limited, was found guilty of conspiring to defraud the state agency.
Milimani Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti found Ngamau guilty of conspiring to commit the economic crime, acquisition of public property unlawfully and making false documents.
The businessman's company is said to have received a payment of Ksh180 m from the youth Enterprise Development Fund for services allegedly not rendered.
Ngamau's request for a non custodial sentence was dismissed by Judge Ogoti claiming that the sentence is dictated by Anti-corruption and Economic crimes.
The Quorandum MD however accepted that he indeed executed the disputed payment when he was answering to the Parliamentary Investments Committee.
According to Ngamau, in the first tender, his company was suppose to provide consultancy services for an ICT strategy design at a cost of Ksh65.9 Million while on the second contract ,the company was to render consultancy services on specific software's at a cost of Ksh114.9 million .
Upon securing the second contract, Ngamau told the Parliamentary Investments Committee that he payed the whole amount to an American National identified as Donnie Collins Reeves for the part of work.
However, upon searching for the details of the said American National, the MPs discovered that he had died .
Detectives later revealed that Ngamau has made several withdrawals from the fund and transferred the money to other accounts of people closely related to him. Ngamau has been sentenced alongside his wife Doreen Waithera.
