Nairobi - An MP has reported Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama to the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC for referring to Devolution CS Anne Waiguru as President Uhuru Kenyatta's girlfriend.
Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru has reported Muthama to the EACC saying that the utterances are baseless and meant to demean Uhuru's office.
The remarks were made Wednesday during the CORD coalition's teachers rally at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.
" We need money taken out of Uhuru's friend Waiguru's Devolution ministry which has been handed billions of shillings to pay teachers," he stated.
Waweru says that as an elected leader, Muthama had let down his office.
" The utterances seem to indicate that the President is favouring a certain member of the cabinet for reasons other than performance, which is an offence," he added.
Muthama did not hide his frustration at the fact that Waiguru was being supposedly favoured by the government.
" She is corrupt but continues being protected time after time by who? Can Uhuru tell us?" he added.
Waiguru has been under pressure in recent times to quit office after it was announced that KES 791 million was lost by the National Youth Service which lies under her Devolution docket.
She has so far protested her innocence in the matter.
