Waiguru - I know who used NYS suspect Kabura

Josephine Kabura was just a pawn!

Speaking on Wednesday night during Citizen TV's JKLive, Waiguru said Kabura was just a pawn and she knew exactly who used Kabura, the NYS 1 chief suspect who has been behind her woes for the past few years.

In 2016, Kabura swore an affidavit linking Ms Waiguru, the then Devolution Cabinet secretary, to the alleged loss of Sh791 million at the NYS.


However when pressed by Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Koinange to disclose the identity of the person who used Kabura, the Kirinyaga Governor was non-committal to reveal the name on national television.

"Kabura was a pawn, somebody used her. I know who it is. I will not answer whether it is a politician or not. We have a new Director of Public Prosecution in town and we expect that he will do the right thing," Waiguru stated.

The Kirinyaga County boss at the same time refused to point out who was to blame for the NYS 1 scam saying that she could not because that was exactly what happened to her when the scandal broke out.


Earlier this week, Waiguru gave the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) seven days to make public the findings of investigations into Kabura's affidavit.

Through her lawyer Mansur Issa, Waiguru wrote to the anti-corruption agency to release the outcome of the investigations and forward the file to the Director of Public Prosecutions within seven days.

“Our client has written severally requesting for information on the outcome of the investigation but the commission inexplicably has not been forthcoming. We look forward to receiving a copy of the report by early return and in any event within the next seven days," Waiguru wrote.

The Kirinyaga Governor argued that the delay in releasing the findings has resulted in negative publicity, the latest being the IPSOS Poll that listed her as the second most corrupt public leader in the country.
