'Can't leave, won't leave', Waiguru tells MPs as Keter storms hearing

04 November 2015, 18:47 William Korir

Nairobi - Can't leave and won't leave is the message Devolution CS Anne Waiguru handed MPs during a hearing into corruption at her ministry.

The CS said Wednesday that she had nothing to do with the alleged cases of graft at her office which runs into billions of shillings, saying she is not in-charge of procurement.

She also challenged MPs to prove that she had indeed played a part in the alleged misappropriations.

In latest revelations over graft at the Devolution Ministry, it has emerged that officials bought ball point pens worth KES 8,700 each.

The revelations were made during a Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee PAC meeting where the ministry's accounts were researched.

For example there was the supply and installation of a touch screen television in Waiguru's office at a cost of KES 1.798 million. Computers, a printer, telephone headsets and a water dispenser were also bought at a combined cost of KES 1.4 million.

The award winning Huduma Kenya Secretariat paid KES 174,000 for 20 blue, fine-tipped ball point pens, each costing KES 8,700 plus a photocopier machine at KES 1.4 million.

45 external hard disks were bought at KES 11,102 each plus a laptop bought for KES 206,000. There were also 18 tailor-made clear male and female condom dispensers at KES 25,000 each.

Waiguru says that it is not her job to deal with some things.

" My job is not to plan for such things. I get them done by others. That is their job. I have no idea that some things exist. You will have to look elsewhere," she told the PAC Wednesday.

After being quizzed by the MPs, Waiguru told members of the Press that she would not resign at any cost.

" This is an elaborate cover-up and I will not bow down to it at any cost. I am here at this ministry to stay," she said defiantly.

There is a Parliamentary motion to impeach her that has been set in place while there is also a plot by the opposition putting pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta to deal with the situation.
