'Detectives searched Waiguru's handbag'

02 December 2015, 12:20 William Korir

Nairobi - Detectives searched former CS Anne Waiguru's handbag and other personal effects during the raid on her home, her lawyer has revealed.

Waiguru's home was raided by detectives from the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC as well as other agencies Tuesday morning, an exercise which took seven hours and in which the former CS was present.

It is understood that they made away with documents as well as other effects which they said they would return.

They further searched all her handbags, children's books as well as other personal effects as they sought evidence of corruption and malpractices which she could have been involved with during her time as CS.

The probe, her lawyer Ahmednassir Abdulahi confirmed, was to do with the ongoing investigations into the loss of KES 791 million from the National Youth Service NYS.

" They searched everything. Her handbag too and children's books. They ransacked every corner of the house but they were professional enough in the manner which they went about it," he told members of the press.

He insists though, that there is nothing to hide and that the detectives will find nothing in whatever they took.

" There is nothing to arrest her with. We know that and we have spoken about it before. There is nothing but we wait and see," he added.

Waiguru last month resigned from office stating that she was under stress and needed rest as advised by her doctor.

Other senior officials in the Devolution Ministry as well as NYS were also raided by detectives who had picked up valid court orders and warrants as prescribed by law.

" They had valid documentation," he added.
