Devolution CS Anne Waiguru has penned a dubious response to an article by economist David Ndii in which she castigates the opposition and ‘its sympathisers’ for ‘fear mongering’ and ‘rumour mongering’.
Already, Kenyans still fed up with her have told her to shut up for she brings back painful memories of the loot at NYS, a scam that, in the final analysis, should see her rot in Â jail. #ShutUpWaiguru is the top trend now.
Ironically, Waiguru still considers herself the ‘whistleblower’, a term she coined soon after Central Bank (true whistle blower) had raised issues with her ministry’s withdrawals of huge sums of money which led to a series of events that, months later, saw her ‘resign’ while asking the President for ‘lighter duties’.
The verdict is and still remain CS Anne Waiguru presided over a looting spree in which she was a key beneficiary, and many of those who have been suspended continue to wonder why she’s treated differently. Waiguru is a criminal. Her place, beyond the patronage that pretexts her now, is where other criminals are – jails.
In fact, soon after she resigned, an event which saw her attack the opposition as she has done today, President Uhuru swiftly reorganized the government, splitting her ministry into two and appointing two new cabinet secretaries to handle it. These events, taken in the context of making the government more accountable, indicts Anne Waiguru who should, for public courtesy’s sake, not be mocking the public with her new found ideas on ‘governance’.
See what hubris can do:
“We are of late witnessing a more sophisticated use of fear mongering to pit Kenyans against one another as we prepare for the 2017 elections. The Opposition and its sympathisers have of late been conjuring up images of a country collapsing because of runaway corruption and looting” Waiguru writes in an op-ed published in Saturday Nation.Â
“It is time for them to show some maturity and conduct themselves on the high plane of dignity and decorum to seek ways to build and unite our nation. Let us put a stop to this needless rumour and fear mongering. The fact that Kenya is on the rise and the Jubilee Government is on the right track is plain to see and not in question,” she quips.
Do you agree with Anne Waiguru?
