Thursday June 11, 2020 – Embattled Kirinyanga Governor, Anne Waiguru’s woes continue to pile days after her impeachment as Governor.
This is after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) initiated corruption investigations against her.
According to EACC’s Central Region Head, Charles Rasugu, his officers will be seeking to establish whether there was a conflict of interest in the awarding of a Sh50 million tender by Waiguru.
Rusugu further stated that Sh10.6 million in travel allowances is also under investigation.
“I can confirm that we are investigating the two cases.”
“We have carted away documents from their offices, and I can confidently state that so far, our investigations are going on well,“ Rasugu stated.
The regional boss further confirmed that summonses have been issued to a number of the Kirinyaga County’s administrative team.
“Senior Kirinyaga County Government officers, among them the Governor’s aides, have been summoned by EACC detectives to record statements.”
“Thirty eight (38) other people alleged to have been involved in the payment of Ksh50 million to Velocity Partners Limited for undone work are also on our radar,” he stated.
