Kalonzo Faults State House of ‘Affection for a Public Servant’ in Anti-Graft Campaign

Cord co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka has reiterated calls for the sacking of Devolution and Urban Planning Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru, and has accused State House of being partial in the war on corruption.

“This double-speak, outright endorsement and blatant public display of affection for a public servant by State House is the embodiment of leadership failure,” Kalonzo said. He added; “We will not drop the demand for Waiguru to either step down or be forced out of office to pave way for proper investigations into the award of tenders and jobs in the Devolution docket.”

Speaking during a press briefing Kalonzo read a statement titled The Making Of a Dictator In a Failing Administration where he accused the Jubilee government of showing favouritism in fighting graft.

“It is a pity that statecraft and resources are being mobilized to insulate Devolution CS Anne Waiguru from accountability on suspected shady dealings in her ministry while at the same time unleashing dogs of war on “peripheral” Cabinet Secretaries and other senior government actors on flimsy allegations of corruption,” Kalonzo said.

Kalonzo said that the Cord alliance will work to unite all Kenyans and create equal opportunities for all communities.

“When CORD forms government in 2017, we will deliberately build bridges for all Kenyan communities to reach out to each other and embrace one another in national unity without undue regard to ethnicity, creed, region or political leaning,” Kalonzo said.

Last month Kalonzo accompanied suspended Lands CS Charity Ngilu to court where she appeared to answer to charges of obstructing a probe into suspect dealings in the 134 acres of disputed Karen land.
