Ngilu hits the road
29 March 2015, 17:35
Nairobi - Lands CS Charity Ngilu has followed her colleagues from different dockets in leaving office to pave way for investigations into corrupt dealings in her ministry.
The announcement was made via the State House press office Sunday afternoon, following the move by 21 other officials to step aside Saturday.
Ngilu was under pressure from Kenyans to step aside after it appeared she was not on the initial list released by State House despite being mentioned in several incidences of misappropriation in her ministry.
She follows fellow CS's Felix Koskei (Agriculture), Kazungu Kambi (Labour), Davis Chrichir (Energy) and Michael Kamau (Transport) among other top ranking officials who have stepped aside.
The move follows a directive from president Uhuru Kenyatta last week to all public officials named in an anti corruption report tabled in parliament to quit and have their issues resolved before coming back to office.
Ngilu was named as part of a list of prominent persons who initiated the grabbing of 134 acres of land in Karen Nairobi among other cases.
