Nakuru - A former Member of Parliament has claimed that the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) office were forced by State House to clear Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru over the graft in her ministry.
Former Rongai MP, Luka Kigen said that EACC and DPP Keriako Tobiko were given instructions from powerful forces within State House not to implicate Waiguru in any wrongdoing but instead list her as a witness in the case.

Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru town, Kigen said that the two institutions were influenced into clearing Waiguru even though they had clear evidence to implicate her.
“EACC and the DPP’s office were directed from State House to clear Waiguru’s name and only list her as a potential witness in the case. They had evidence that she was involved in the fraud but they couldn’t defy their boss at State House,” said Kigen.
“When State House learned that Waiguru had been implicated by EACC, they sent emissaries to the DPP’s office to change things and that is when Tobiko directed the arrest of PS Mangiti and the NYS boss Nelson Githinji as scapegoats.”
He lashed at Tobiko for allowing State House his Office's independence as per the constitution.
