Civil servants throw weight behind embattled Waiguru

26 May 2014, 19:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Civil servants have backed devolution secretary Ann Waiguru who is facing impeachment, saying those asking for her resignation are malicious.

Waiguru is set to face an impeachment motion in parliament for apparent ethical and ethnic failures in her ministry.

It is understood that close to 150 MPs have signed a petition wanting her to be withdrawn from office by president Uhuru Kenyatta which is to be debated in the coming days.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have already come to the defence of the soft spoken Waiguru, saying any impeachment motion is unfortunate and unfair.

And now the civil servants under the umbrella of the Kenya Civil Servants Union have also backed Waiguru in her battle to stay afloat.

" On the outset I wish to categorically state that as the representative of the public servants, we read malice on the attacks of the cabinet secretary, union secretary Tom Odege said in a press statement.

" We believe that it is unfair to attack the CS over the alleged misdeeds whilst the apprehensions if any, lie in a different office.

" It is our belief that for there to be justice exercised, fairness is key and we wish that it be upheld in relatioon to the CS.

Waiguru has insisted that her alleged malpractices have all been in order and said she is ready to defend herself of the allegations if need be.

Deputy president William Ruto said over the weekend that the buck stops at his and president Uhuru Kenyatta's desk as regards any government appointment instituted and has asked for the campaigns against Waiguru to stop.
