Waiguru's forgiveness message to ODM's Raila Odinga.

In 2015 ODM’s Raila Odinga moved to claim that former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru, together with others, colluded to embezzle over Sh791 million from the government through dubious projects.

 

The Jubilee Party Kirinyaga County gubernatorial hopeful has also accused the Opposition of falsely linking her to the loss of billions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS) and waging a malicious graft war against her, dimming her political ambitions.

For the first time since the NYS scandal opened up, Waiguru has said that she is ready for a lifestyle audit as demanded by the Public Accounts Committee of the National Assembly last week.

“The Opposition framed me because it wanted me kicked out of the Jubilee government,” Ms Waiguru said.

Speaking at Karira Catholic Church in Kirinyaga County on Sunday, where she was prayed for, Ms Waiguru has lashed out at the Opposition for being envious of the  ‘good job’ she was doing at the helm of Devolution Ministry, before “they planted malice against me,” she said.

She has insisted that the her good track of record is the cause of her current trouble with the not happy with the “good job” that she was doing in the government and that is why it tried to portray her in a bad light.

“If PAC and the Opposition have something else against me; I’m ready to be investigated further,” she said.

Ms Waiguru added: “After failing to fix me in the NYS scandal, the Opposition is spreading propaganda that I have been barred from contesting the gubernatorial seat. The Opposition will not succeed in its evil schemes.”

In 2015 ODM’s Raila Odinga moved to claim that former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru, together with others, colluded to embezzle over Sh791 million from the government through dubious projects.

Accompanied by her running mate, Mr Peter Ndambiri, the former CS however said she had forgiven the Opposition.

“The Bible tells us to forgive our enemies,” she said.

She added: “I therefore take this opportunity to forgive the Opposition, which even kept on pushing that I be probed and prosecuted.”

She asked the residents to ignore propaganda and vote for her in August polls.

Mr Ndambiri exuded confidence that they would triumph, saying: “We are aggressively wooing voters and the response is good everywhere. “We shall succeed.”

Former Mwea Member of Parliament Alfred Nderitu expressed his support for Ms Waiguru and promised to campaign for her.
