Waiguru’s new move that will anger MPs

Waiguru has been involved in heated exchanges with MPs over the NYS scandal.


Waiguru has now moved to court challenging the recent National Assembly's Public Accounts Committee recommendations that she should be held culpable for the loss of over Sh 719million at the National Youth Service (NYS).

Waiguru has sued the National Assembly, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the Director of Criminal Investigations and the Attorney General.

According to the committee’s recommendations, Waiguru should not hold a public office if found guilty.

Through lawyer Mansur Issa, Waiguru argued the recommendation was reached on the basis of uncorroborated and false evidence by an affidavit by one of the key suspects, Josephine Kabura.

She also wants the recommendations and findings of PAC against her quashed.

Waiguru also said the committee disregarded the evidence of DCI Director Ndegwa Muhoro, who had investigated the matter and found out that documents relating to the NYS scandal were found in the houses of suspects already facing prosecution.

This latest move is likely to further incense MPs led by PAC chairman Nicholas Gumbo who have been at loggerheads with Waiguru over the scandal that has seen heated exchanges during her sermons before the committee.

Waiguru, has through a sworn affidavit, denied any involvement in the scandal, maintaining that she is being used as a sacrificial lamb to divert attention from the real master minds of the NYS scandal.

The former Devolution CS sees the recommendations made by MPs as an act of bad faith designed to prevent her intentions to become the first woman governor in Kenya after her impressive win in the Jubilee primaries for Kirinyaga County.
