Nairobi - A member of parliament has advised embattled devolution and planning cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru to pick a lesson from former cabinet minister Amos Kimunya and stop being arrogant.
Nyandarua County women representative, Wanjiku Muhia said Waiguru should be humble and step aside and clear her name first.
Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, Muhia told Waiguru to read from the troubles bedeviling Kimunya whom she said is still battling with lots of corruption-related cases in courts.
“At one time, Kimunya was among the untouchable ministers in this nation and he even opted to die rather than resign when he was implicated but now see what he is going through. My sister Waiguru should learn from Kimunya and stop being too arrogant because if she doesn’t clear her name now lest Kimunya's woes catch up with her in the near future," said Muhia.

Muhia said Waiguru should save her family from future agony of going through court cases by proving that she is clean while still in government.
“The likes of David Mwiraria and Kimunya had all the time to clear their names while serving in government but they chose to be rude and arrogant because of power and now the are paying the price. I doubt Waiguru would like to go through the same after Uhuru retires," she said.
Muhia is among a section of leaders from the Mount Kenya region who have been calling for the resignation of Waiguru over corruption in her ministry.
