Jubilee MP wants Waiguru suspended

16 September 2015, 10:50 Kimagat Maridany

Nairobi - A Jubilee MP has called for the suspension of Devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru over the NYS scam.

Bomet Central MP, Ronald Tonui has said that there is need for Waiguru to step aside to facilitate investigations into the reported fraud in her ministry.

Tonui said a number of cabinet secretaries who had appeared in the list of shame had stepped aside and Waiguru should also follow suit if Kenyans are to have confidence in government's efforts to fight against corruption.

“What is so special with some cabinet secretaries for the government to continue keeping them in office even when there was open and glaring case of misuse of funds within their dockets,” he noted.

Speaking to the press in Bomet town, the legislator said the government should not apply selective justice on public servants and all who are involved in improprieties should be dealt with equally.

The Bomet Central MP said the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) should be allowed to investigate the cabinet secretaries and other public servants suspected to have mismanaged public coffers and have them prosecuted or cleared if they are found not guilty.

He at the same time said the government should also institute an audit of Waiguru's lifestyle saying from the look of things, she is likely to have enjoyed unwarranted protection from the government.

Tonui at the same time said he supported a pay rise for teachers.

He said most of Kenyan teachers were poverty-stricken due to the low pay that the government gave them.

“It is pointless for the government to misconstrue Kenyans that it was committed to the education of Kenyan child when it has continued to ignore the plight of teachers for years on end,” he stated.

The MP said it was not enough for the President to state that the country’s economy cannot sustain the teachers’ pay rise when he is in a position to source for money to pay them.
