Waiguru using government resources to campaign, ODM claims

04 February 2016, 08:03 William Korir

Nairobi - Former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru is using government resources to campaign for the 2017 Nairobi Governor's position, Orange Democratic Movement ODM has claimed.

Waiguru has already started campaigns to unseat current Governor Evans Kidero come 2017 in what is sure to be a crowded field.

ODM though, now says that Waiguru is a government project aimed at frustrating Kidero and the opposition.

A number of insiders claim that Waiguru has been fronted by President Uhuru Kenyatta as a way of wrestling Nairobi from the opposition and that there are serious amounts of government machinery available for the former CS.

" She is a government project and we have information that she is," an aide to ODM leader Raila Odinga told News24.

" The government will do anything to get Nairobi on the right track and Waiguru has been identified as the right candidate," the source added.

Kidero on Wednesday took a swipe at Waiguru, accusing her of using the suspended National Youth Service (NYS) projects to launch her race for Governorship.

The under-fire Kidero claims the projects that targeted some of the city’s poorest neighbourhoods were nothing more than a political gimmick to win votes in next year’s General Elections.

" The NYS project was supposed to be a national project, but it was hijacked by politics," said Kidero.

Kidero referred to numerous slum projects in Kibera and Mathare and other areas of the city, which he said were all about Waiguru and her supposed effort.

" We all know who the leader of all the projects was. You can fill the dots," he added.

Waiguru is also on record as saying that she will consult with President Uhuru Kenyatta on whether to run for the seat or not, a statement that has raised eyebrows over his role in the 2017 polls.
