Waiguru taken in by EACC officials for questioning

22 February 2016, 14:23

Nairobi - Anne Waiguru has arrived at the EACC over the KES 791 million NYS scandal, where she will present evidence over her involvement in the saga, The Standard reports,

Supporters of the former Devolution CS earlier thronged the commission's Integrity Centre headquarters, sang and dance in an anticipation of her address.

They described Waiguru as as a good leader who saved them from "starvation" by getting them jobs in the National Youth Service, which has been plagued by corruption allegations. Waiguru has denied the claims.

"She gave us work... Most of us are really grateful for her. All we want is for her to be cleared so that we can do our work peacefully," one said.

Capital News added that the key scam suspect Josephine Kabura described her relationship with Waiguru in an affidavit filed in court on February 15.

She said that prior to a contract of the amount, Waiguru had assisted her to “secure other contracts, with about 30 LPOs for my other companies, at NYS, with a value in excess of KES 400 million”.

The businesswoman described how she took “KES 10 million to Waiguru's house in Runda on August 26, 2015”, which she was later told would be used to clean up her image in the media.

Waiguru dismissed her as a “crazy woman” whom she has never met and came to know about only after the scandal broke.
