Waiguru a suspect in NYS saga, not witness
08 December 2015, 08:04
Nairobi - The Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is treating the former Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru as a suspect in the National Youth Service (NYS) saga, and not a witness as alleged by the DPP.
EACC CEO, Halakhe Waqo said Waiguru is among the suspects under investigation over the loss of billions at NYS.
Contrary to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions which initially announced that Waiguru will be a witness in the saga, the EACC maintained that it has never considered her as a prosecutions witness in the multi-million graft saga.

"Her lawyer is her lawyer. The commission never announced the same. It was not a statement from us because we also have officials charged with stating the same," said Waqo.
He added that Waiguru is among 18 persons of interest EACC is focusing on in its investigations.
"We looked at various individuals suspected to be part of various deals and management of NYS," he said.
Waqo insisted that the management of resources at NYS was questionable under Waiguru's tenure, hence need to probe all those who were involved in the deals from the top to the bottom.
Waiguru has been at the center of KES 791 million loss at the NYS, something which led to her resignation last month.
