Hardily three months have passed since Prime Minister Raila Odinga called on Uhuru’s Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru to step down over massive corruption in her ministry.
Statehouse mounted a serious PR campaign in which they called Raila all sorts of names and defended the Devolution Cabinet secretary, now the Waiguru has confirmed the government lost more than Kshs 825 Million.
Waiguru has named 22 officers who have been recommended for prosecution over the National Youth Service (NYS) graft, contrary to the norm where cabinet secretaries whose ministries have rocked with corruption scandals are required to step aside until investigations are complete.
Ordinarily the Police investigations report is forwarded to Director of Public Prosecutions office for prosecution, but in this case the CID handed their investigations report to CS Waiguru (an interested party) and possibilities of mutilation cannot be ruled out.
Among the 22 individuals featuring on the list is NYS Senior Deputy Director General Adan Harake who is alleged to be Waiguru protege.
Speaking to the media on Friday, Waiguru said the investigation by CID into the saga had also identified similar fraudulent payments worth Sh791 Million.
Here is the list of 22 scapegoats who will carry Waiguru and Githinji’s burden (political responsibility) as the two allegedily continue to presiding over corruption.
