Kirinyaga Governor, Ann Waiguru, now claims the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) is being used to settle political scores.
The Governor who was summoned over a Ksh52 million financial query, claims the summons on Thursday are a scheme to intimidate her over her new political stance.
“It is unfortunate that EACC has been roped in and its now the new vehicle being used to undermine our efforts to have squatters on the land settled. The summons are witch-hint, driven by people who are trying to influence the 2022 elections in Kirinyaga and succession politics in the region” she told journalists.
The Governor is linking her woes to politics following remarks she made recently claiming that the BBI horse was dead and that she was re-considering her political options.
She said she is consulting the electorate and will soon bid bye to the Jubilee party.
“I will go by the wishes of the residents. They are ones who have votes and if they tell me to join any other party of their choice I will exactly do so,” she said.
