The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) boss Twalib Mbarak now says that the NYS saga in which Governor Anne Waiguru is involved will not be rushed.
Speaking to Citizen TV’s Hussein Mohamed, Mr Mbarak said that the EACC was not going to treat Governor Waiguru any differently because she is a governor.
He noted that the EACC is dealing with a handful other cases which are yet to be resolved but promised that she would get her feed back through the normal process.
“The case is being handled. She will get feedback through the normal process. There is no need to rush just because she is a governor. Her case is not special,” he said in part.
His reply came after the Kirinyaga county boss wrote her sixth letter to the anti-corruption agency, saying that among other things, the NYS saga had dragged her name through the mud.
In the letter, Waiguru cited frustration with the case which had entered its third year even after the EACC ascertained that NYS scandal suspect Josephine Kabura had given a false affidavit.
‘‘Since then, there has been no progress on the matter and Kenyans are still in the dark about why Kabura lied and on whose instructions she undertook to perjure herself,” said Ms Waiguru.
Kabura had previously implicated her former boss Anne Waiguru in an affidavit, saying that her boss was aware of the massive KSh 791 million looting at the NYS.
When the news of the scandal broke circa 2015, Waiguru,the then devolution Cabinet Secretary threw in the towel,resigning on medical grounds, on the advice of her doctor.
During a press briefing, she explained to the media that she had asked her boss, Uhuru Kenyatta to assign her lighter duties.
