Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru responded to news of her looming arrest over a Ksh 52.8 million corruption scandal.
The governor blamed the arrest on her recent defection to Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA camp.
In a social media post, Waiguru argued that the looming arrest is linked to President Uhuru’s succession politics hidden under a corruption case.
“Surely, barely 48 hours after we decamped to UDA & now this? As a believer in the rule of law, this is unfortunate. Its intention is to dissuade those contemplating the same & an attempt at engineering succession politics. it will not work. Kenyans are not stupid. There is God in heaven,” Anne Waiguru responded.
Waiguru’s response has attracted some reaction from her main opponent Wangui Ngirici.
In a cheeky post on social media, Ngirici told Waiguru not to blame her tribulations on joining UDA.
On Thursday, October 28 reports indicated that the EACC sleuths have finalised the case against Waiguru and other members of the Kirinyaga County Assembly.
The file has been forwarded to the DPP Noordin Haji, and she might be arrested anytime.
She is set to be arrested and charged alongside other members of Kirinyaga County Assembly namely; Anthony Gathumbi, James Murango, and David Mathenge.
Waiguru started her attacks on EACC long before joining William Ruto’s UDA Party.
She accused the commission of going after her for changing her political stand.
“Last time I said … ‘on BBI let me keep quiet a bit…’ immediately, EACC raided my office… Recently I said am ‘… introspecting on the political way forward…’ and again, immediately I get EACC summons, complete with all the subtle threatening inflexibilities… and media alerts on an alleged payment of 52m,” Waiguru stated.
