Ngilu's Jubilee days numbered
14 July 2015, 13:17
Nairobi - That Devolution CS Anne Waiguru is being favoured is the main issue behind Lands CS Charity Ngilu's problem with the Jubilee government.
According to insiders, Ngilu is irked by the fact that Waiguru has been protected so heavily by State House despite her open issues with corruption at the National Youth Service NYS.
Ngilu has been at the centre of a storm in which she has been accused of several irregular land deals.
And with comments coming from her camp on how she has been mistreated by the Jubilee coalition as concerns her corruption allegations, she has now gone against her employer and accused them of double standards.
Monday, she said that the Jubilee coalition was not keen on fighting corruption in what was an open attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration.
But the recent attacks it seems have come up as a result of State House openly defending Waiguru.
" The issue is Waiguru and the fact that State House defended her of her corruption allegations," an aide told News24.
" Ngilu believes that she has been left out to die alone while others have been offered State House protection and she is thus not happy," the source added.
Ngilu also believes that Waiguru has been given too much government leverage over the NYS as compared to other ministries.
The Lands CS has now gone on to defend CORD co Principal Kalonzo Musyoka, and with Jubilee MPs also on her case, it is likely that Ngilu will be frozen out.
"It is likely that she will be on her way out of the coalition because of her recent behaviour," Political analyst Michael Njenga says.
" There is no way back for her and also to be honest, she does not offer much in terms of political leverage for President Kenyatta and that will be a factor," he believes.
