Waiguru demands EACC report on Kabura affidavit



Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is now demanding that the Ethics and Anti-corruption commission releases the outcome of its investigations into an affidavit sworn by Josephine Kabura, believed to be one of the architects of the 790 Million shillings NYS heist.

Waiguru says she has suffered irreparable damage based on the explosive affidavit sworn in February 2016.

Waiguru in her letter cites the recent IPSOS Synovate poll that ranked her as the second most corrupt politician in the country as the evidence of the damage on her character.

Kabura in her affidavit had claimed to have met Waiguru who aided the registration of her two companies that were used as a conduit for the millions of money.

Kabura insisted that the former Devolution Minister was the major architect of the fraud forcing the EACC to question her, Waiguru and other senior officials mentioned in the affidavit.

Governor has however remained defiant, claiming the corruption allegations emanated from people unhappy with her work at the Ministry of Devolution.
