William Ruto defends Waiguru over NYS appointment

25 May 2014, 07:02

Kericho - Deputy President, William Ruto has finally come to the defense of Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru over the recent transfers at the National Youth Service (NYS).

Waiguru has been at the centre of controversy over the replacement of Kiplimo Rugut with Nelson Githinji as NYS Director General, a replacement she allegedly made via SMS.

The replacement sparked outrage both on social media and in the National Assembly, Kenyans citing tribalism in the ruling Party while MPs from Rift Valley said it violated the URP-TNA pre-election pact.

In her defense, Waiguru dismissed the claims saying that she did not sack Rugut but had instead promoted him to a higher job group.

The Deputy President has also allaying fears of MPs who were pushing for Waiguru’s impeachment, The Standard reports, saying that the transfers were in order.
