Anne Waiguru Decries Witchhunt By EACC, Launches Veiled Attack on Uhuru

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has decried being pursued by the Ethics And Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) for political reasons.

Waiguru said the EACC claims of late accounting of imprests were unfounded as no money had been lost.
She said the move was intended to punish her for shifting her allegiance to Deputy President William Ruto from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
She said the frustrations are aimed at sending a warning message to those who want to defect to Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
Taking to Facebook, the country boss launched an indirect attack on Uhuru saying the Auditor General’s report indicated billions not accounted in imprest from his office yet no one had been charged as it is on her case.

“The issue here relates to accounting for imprest. The auditor general’s report records billions not accounted in imprest from OP, Government ministries, Parliament, etc.

No public officer has ever been charged for late accounting because such delays are normal and expected. There is no allegation that money was lost only that it was accounted for late,” said Waiguru.
Waiguru wondered why EACC was on her neck yet people who were implicated in the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) scandal were still at large.

“Meanwhile, those who disappeared with billions meant for sick people continue to walk the streets unmoved because they belong to certain political affiliations. Anyway, there remains a God in heaven,” she added.
Waiguru officially ditched the ruling Jubilee Party for UDA on Tuesday, October 26, 2021, after what she termed as extensive consultation.
She announced she would defend her Kirinyaga seat on the UDA ticket, a move that saw woman rep Wangui Ngirici ditching the outfit citing lack of democracy.
Since joining the Tanga Tanga faction, Waiguru has decried Witchhunt saying the government has been trying to revive her past corruption allegations.
