Waiguru not off the hook, EACC clarifies

19 February 2016, 18:48

Nairobi - The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC has denied clearing former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru of any wrongdoing in the KES 791 million National Youth Service scandal.

According to Capital News, a letter dated February 4, allegedly signed by EACC boss Halakhe Waqo, informed State House Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua that the commission had found no evidence against Waiguru.

But chairman Philip Kinisu said on Friday that the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission only cleared Waiguru of four charges involving the management of NYS which was under her docket.

Kinisu told a press conference that the matter was being investigated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations which failed to supply clear information.

The Star further reported that the commission launched a fresh probe into the scam following an affidavit by key suspect businesswoman Josephine Kabura that accused Waiguru of being the architect.

Kinisu said they have set up a special investigations team and noted that the commission receives more than 5,000 cases. All persons of interest are to be summoned to help with investigations.

The chairman added that recommendations on the Chickengate scandal will be presented to Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko in 21 days.
