Moses Kuria has said he will name Cord leaders in the Sh791 million NYS scandal if former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru does not do so in two weeks.
The Gatundu South MP said Waiguru has sufficient time to name 52 Jubilee and Cord MPs in a list of those involved, and “say all she has to say” regarding the scandal.
“Jubilee leaders will in the next two weeks focus on voter registration. In that duration, Waiguru should step out and name everyone involved in the National Youth Service scandal,” he said.
Kuria furtheraccused Waiguru, who mentioned several leaders in her damning affidavit , of being impartial in the naming.
He spoke during a fundraiser at Hope of Life Family Church in Githurai, Nairobi, on Sunday.
Ruiru MP Esther Gathogo said that the wave of corruption allegations against Jubilee leaders is a ploy by the Opposition to keep supporters from registering as voters.
Gathogo cautioned the public against politicians bent on “using and dumping them when their corrupt deeds are uncovered”.
“It is true that there is corruption in the country but not to the extent that the Opposition might want Kenyans to believe,” she added.
The Member of Parliament asked Nairobi residents not to elect Waiguru governor in the 2017 general election.
“Why should you elect someone who could not finish her term due to corruption allegations? That only means that if elected governor she will not finish her term,” Gathogo said.
Waiguru resigned in November 2015 , following claims of corruption in her ministry. She cited poor health and requested President Uhuru Kenyatta to assign her lighter duties.
Gathogo asked a businesswoman cum hairdresser who accused the former CS of being at the centre of the NYS scam to speak out fearlessly.
“Josephine Kabura is a hustler like any other Kenyan. I urge her to speak out on all she knows,” she said.
The MP apologised for saying she would strip naked in Waiguru’s support.
“I am deeply embarrassed at my earlier comments. I apologise to anyone who was offended especially my family,” she said.
