Nairobi- Women leaders have asked Devolution CS Ann Waiguru to step aside over the KES 791 million NYS scandal.
Senators Elizabeth Ongoro and Janet Ong'era have asked Waiguru to move aside and let investigations in the scandal continue.
Waiguru has so far stated her innocence in the matter.
According to he leaders though, by not stepping aside, Waiguru is giving women leaders a bad name.
" No one is saying she is guilty for now. However,in the spirit of goodwill, she should step aside like others in her position and let investigations take place to clear her name," Ong'era said in a press statement.
Waiguru has maintained her innocence in the matter and stated that she is not culpable but according to Ongoro, something is amiss.
" There is something not quite right and we need to know what it is. The CS has some explaining to do because she is the boss and must also take responsibility, " she said.
27 officials at the NYS and Devolution ministry have been called in for questioning over the loss by the CID but Waiguru is not one of them.
