21 September 2016, 08:09
Nairobi - Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has told the the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that he was rebuked after saying there was corruption in the National Youth Service (NYS).
Appearing before the PAC on Tuesday, Ngunyi said he was shut down by former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru in a meeting after he mentioned 'fishy deals' in NYS.
"I was told our role at the ministry was not to fight corruption," Ngunyi said.
"Who told you so?" PAC chairman Nicholas Gumbo probed.

"This was said severally during meetings and the person who said it is Anne Waiguru," Ngunyi said.
The professor of politics was put to task on various issues as members of the committee tried to understand whether his company, The Consulting House, benefited from a KES 791M scandal at NYS.
Ngunyi's company had been hired to restructure NYS.
The restructuring process was however dodged by corruption scandals. Anne Waiguru resigned from office amid public outcry over the corruption in the ministry.
She has however maintained that she is innocent and did not siphon even a coin from the public coffers.
