I am not against Waiguru’ says woman rep

By: BOB MURIUKI

Nyandarua woman representative Wanjiku Muhia yesterday denied claims of trying to sabotage Jubilee.

This is after she supported the calls to have Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru step aside over allegations of corruption in her ministry.

Wanjiku said she was defending Jubilee from shame. She said she has no personal differences with Waiguru but wants her to step aside for her name to be cleared by the authorities.

“I have never sabotaged the government but I want her to step aside,” Wanjiku said. She spoke during a talk show on a local radio station.

Wanjiku said the opposition has made the war against corruption a political tool to fight the government.

That is why Waiguru should step aside, she said. Wanjiku said if the CS does that, the opposition would have nothing to talk about.

“We know this is a political war by the opposition to fight the government, since Waiguru is clean and has done a lot for this country.”

The lawmaker praised the decision by National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi to stop the motion to sack Waiguru.

“This was a wise decision and we will all support it. The speaker has the mandate to make decisions that he deems wise,” Wanjiku said. She accused some Nyandarua leaders of waging war against her leadership.

“They are free to talk and propagate the war against me but I am doing the best to help the electorate. This includes fighting illegal brews and helping rape victims,” she said.
