Uhuru deleted Waiguru from list of shame, claims Raila

17 July 2015, 16:26 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has named Devolution CS Anne Waiguru as one of the persons whose names was removed from the controversial list of shame by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC and presented in Parliament by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Raila says that the devolution CS has been under investigation for a while now but was removed from the list by the government to protect her for unknown reasons.

Also on the removed list, according to Raila is the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC chairman Isack Hassan.

Raila also named Energy Cabinet Secretary CS Davis Chirchir and former Judiciary Chief Registrar Gladys Boss Sholei saying that the President also  deliberately shielded them from prosecution.

However, CS Chirchir was cleared of the graft allegations levelled against him by the EACC while Sholei is facing prosecution following the recommendation of the anti-graft agency after it forwarded her file to the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP Keriako Tobiko.

He stated that the Jubilee government is not serious in the war against corruption, saying that by hiding the names of the officials, they had demonstrated so.

" The President and his administration are not serious about fighting graft in this country. The list tabled in Parliament and the comments being made are just pure Public Relations," said Mr. Odinga.

" What we are seeing happening at the National Youth Service (NYS) is a clear indication that the Jubilee government is not ready or committed in the war against graft," he added.

Waiguru has thus far been defended by the government, with State House going as far as holding a press conference to assure Kenyans that she is not involved in graft at the NYS, which has been said to amount to as much as KES 826 million.

The Devolution CS has also stated on several television interviews her innocence, even though her pleas have so far landed on deaf ears as far as the opposition is concerned.
