Top Statehouse operatives have settled on Devolution PS Peter Mangiti to be the sacrificial lamb in order to save Uhuru’s hot favourite CS – Madam Waiguru. In a meeting held in Karen on Tuesday night the three top operatives agreed on the scheme to have Mangiti delivered to the ‘slaughterhouse’.
‘PS Mangiti has no tribal following and therefore zero impact on Jubilee standing- you don’t lose what you don’t have’-a stone wall that listen to the conversation confirmed. Besindes Mangiti is more of a Ruto man than Uhuru!
In the meeting it was decided that that CID boss and Anti Corruption commission- EACC should be ordered to fast track any investigations to lay ground for the sacking of the PS. It was also decided that Aden Duale who had apologized for a remark on corruption was more than willing to lead the political onslaught on PS Mangiti.
Indeed on Thursday Hon Duale led a battery of Jubilee lawmakers that urged Uhuru to spare Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru over the revelations of massive misappropriation in her docket and instead urged him to dismiss PS Peter Mangiti for releasing the dossier that exposed the rot in the powerful docket.
Hon Duale and the ten Jubilee lawmakers seemed to pull tribal politics into the war, PS Mangiti is Luo who is alleged to be aligned to William Ruto’s URP wing of the coalition. Hon Duale was accompanied by Uhuru’s first cousin and Waiguru defender in chief nominated senator Beth Mugo blamed Mr Mangiti and director of Budget Agnes Odhiambo for exposing shaming the government.
The other MPs who joined the Lynch Mangiti bandwagon included deputy Majority Leader Naomi Shabaan (Taveta) and MPs Ndung’u Gethenji (Tetu), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete), Bare Shill (Fafi), Maison Leshoomo (Samburu), and nominated senators Naisula Lesuuda, Zipporah Kittony and Paul Njoroge.
Back to the meeting in Karen, the two Statehouse operatives and one Powerful Mt Kenya MP (from Mbeere) immediately after the meeting summoned Uhuru chief propagandist and offered him the brief to use to defend Waiguru on social media. Indeed Dennis Itumbi’s message since Tuesday has been consistent that Principal Secretary PS Mangiti is to blame for the corruption in Devolution and not the Plus Size beautiful CS.
PS Mangiti hails from Migori, has previously worked with UN agencies.
