So some MPs have taken it upon themselves to ‘defend’ devolution CS Ms. Anne Waiguru accused of watching over millions of shillings looted by senior officials under her watch? Not surprised.
Many of these same MPs are getting millions of shillings from Waiguru’s ‘Devolution’ ministry either through preferential tenders or by supplying ‘hot air’ to NYS.
Some are known to use the predicament of the cabinet secretary to make ‘soft’ requests for employment of their relatives and squeezes.
Companies associated with the TNA MPs exclusively makes supplies to NYS – from foodstuffs to cereals to the uniform NYS youths wear. To these people, therefore, any change of status quo at NYS will cut off the gravy train.
For MPs like ODM’s Richard Onyonka and Ken Obura, the NYS youths fill the voids in their CDF projects. MPs who have squandered and misappropriated CDF money are using NYS to do the projects they would have done had they been prudent with the funds.
NYS helps the MPs to file returns, as several projects are cleared ‘done’ via CDF yet in real sense, it is NYS which have been used.
Overall, MPs seeking favours from government only have to show they support this huge looting avenue, for without their support the government collapse under the heavy onslaught especially from veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga.
