Nandi - Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter says he doesn’t have personal enmity against Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru in his attempts to have her impeached over corruption.
Keter, who is trying to have Waiguru impeached for the third time after failing in the first and second attempts, says he is interested in seeing that corruption ends in Kenya.
“As I push for impeachment motions, I am interested in seeing to it that corruption in Kenya comes to an end and this is the role of all MPs, me included,” Keter said.
He said he is determined to fight graft in the country, even though he admitted it is not an easy task.
“It is not easy when you fight corruption. There are powers that will fight you back but I am determined to soldier on,” Keter said.
He revealed that he had raised two grounds for the impeachment of Waiguru in his new motion and called for support from his colleagues to send the CS home.

“My motion is on grounds of gross violation of constitution and gross misconduct in the case of Waiguru,” Keter said.
He accused the Jubilee administration of failing to curb the vice, which he termed as shameful.
“We must not run away from the truth. We as Jubilee leaders have failed,” Keter said.
However, TNA party chairman Johnson Sakaja differed with Keter saying the fight against corruption should not be a form of witch-hunt on anybody.
Sakaja maintained that Waiguru was not directly linked to corrupt deals in her ministry and was not under any investigations over such deals.
“There is nothing linking Waiguru directly to corruption. Let us recall that she is the one who first asked for investigations when she noticed suspicious transactions in her ministry,” Sakaja said.
He said other CSs who stepped aside in the past were personally linked to graft by the anti-graft body unlike Waiguru who has not been mentioned in any report by EACC.
