Friday June 26, 2020 – Leaked information indicates that the Senate Committee on Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru’s impeachment chose to save the corrupt Kirinyaga goddess even before hearing testimonies.
Sources intimated that Waiguru was to survive the axe anyway and that no evidence was provided to prove that she had indulged in corruption.
However, the 11 member committee called on the DCI to conduct investigations on Waiguru following revelations that some of her close associates must have abused office.
The Senator Cleophas Malala led committee thus want DCI and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to look into the graft, abuse of office and violation of procurement regulations allegations tabled against Waiguru.
It also suggested that all culpable culprits found guilty thereafter be charged and arraigned in court.
The select committee also argued that some of the allegations against Waiguru were administrative challenges and did not meet the threshold for her ouster.
On Tuesday, June 23rd, Waiguru lamented that the MCAs had plotted nine impeachments against her out of her support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
She asked the Senate to protect Governors against MCAs who are out to exploit and manipulate powers accorded to them in the devolved system of Government.
“I have a lot of confidence in my members.”
“We will deliver a fair ruling.”
“I would like to invite all Kenyans to anticipate the fair ruling,” Malala stated while addressing the media yesterday.
