Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru faces arrest over corruption

There is a looming arrest of Anne Waiguru over corruption at the Kirinyaga County government days after she joined UDA.

Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission  (EACC) are said to be finalizing their investigations that could see Waiguru arrested alongside Kirinyaga Chief Finance Officer Mugo Ndathi, Assembly Speaker Anthony Gathumbi, Leader of Majority James Murango and chairman of the Budget Committee David Mathenge over corruption charges.

Anne Waiguru is on the grill due to the planned payment of Ksh. 52 million for a dubious land survey tender and questionable allowances to the governor and county officials.

The looming arrest of Anne Waiguru alongside the Country Assembly officials could be witnessed next week since the EACC has completed investigations and planned to hand over the files to DPP Noordin Haji any time.

Coincidentally, Waiguru’s arrest may come only days after she joined Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA camp.

On September 4, Anne Waiguru said that a political witch hunt was lodged against her by the EACC after her statement on the collapse of BBI.

She further added that the summons came after she gave a hint on changing her political camp after the collapse of BBI.

“Last time I said … ‘on BBI let me keep quiet a bit…’ immediately, EACC raided my office…  Recently I said am ‘… introspecting on the political way forward…’  and again, immediately I get EACC summons, complete with all the subtle threatening inflexibilities… and media alerts on an alleged payment of 52m,” Waiguru stated.
