Discredited former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru has moved to court seeking damages for alleged defamation by Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama and Kakamega Senator Bonnie Khalwale.
“I was shocked to hear the two address a crowd at Uhuru Park and accuse me of being a thief, corrupt and an embezzler of public funds. They spoke about me in derogatory terms alleging that I was immoral, promiscuous and engaged in immoral conduct,” she says.
The two senators had questioned the ‘special relationship’ between Waiguru and the President which made untouchable at a time questions were swrling over the lost millions in what has become known as the ‘NYS scam’. The she later resigned under pressure citing ‘health issues’, she has never gotten over the fact that she’s no longer a high flying Cabinet Secretary.
An aide to Muthama called her suit ‘total nonsense’ while a source told this writer Khalwale laughed off the suit as an ‘insult to Kenyans’ considering the crimes Waiguru is being investigated for.
“She misses publicity,” he quipped.
