The list of 'strange' MPs who stormed Waiguru’s grilling

A mob of at least ten MPs on Thursday stormed the grilling of former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru at Parliament buildings in Nairobi. The MPs came in huge numbers to intimidate the members of the Public Accounts Committee.

 

The MPs who are not members of the PAC wanted to sit in the committee to shield Waiguru from the tough questions about the Sh1.6 billion scandal that rocked the National Youth Service.

Rachel Shebesh (Nairobi woman representative),Maison Leshoomo (Nairobi woman representative)and  Richard Tongi (Nyaribari Chache) made one of the committee members Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren) to complain of intimidation.

The MPs called themselves “friends of the committee”.

ODM chairman John Mbadi, who sits in the PAC alerted Gumbo that the “strangers to the committee” were out to “cause a circus” that scuttled a similar investigation by the National Assembly’s Labour and Social Welfare Committee, which exonerated the ex-minister.

““There will not be any circus in this serious committee. Priority will be given to members of the Public Accounts Committee. Friends of the committee will have their say, because ultimately it is the report of the Public Accounts that will be adopted,” said PAC chairman Nicholas Gumbo.

Others who came in the mob of strangers include  Peter Kaluma of Homa Bay Town, Alfred Keter of Nandi Hills,Stephen Kariuki of Mathare, Lelelit Lati of Samburu West, Abdikadir Ore of Wajir West, Simba Arati of Dagoretti North and Shakeel Shabbir of Kisumu East.

Shakeel said he is the chairman of an anti-corruption caucus in Parliament and he was not part of the Waiguru mob.
