Suspended Lands CS Charity Ngilu was “having a bad day” when she defended Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka against land grabbing claims, TNA chairman Johnson Sakaja has said.
Ngilu’s remarks were uncalled for, Sakaja said, adding he was the one who disclosed the alleged grabbing of 600 acres of NYS land in Yatta, Machakos county.
“We can longer say our people are being targeted or this and that land belongs to our community,” he said during a Nation FM interview on Wednesday.
The nominated MP said Ngilu is free to leave Jubilee, although she is a principal alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
He said Uhuru’s family members have shown how they acquired their land even though they were mentioned in the Ndung’u Report.
He urged the government to strengthen links between police and prosecutors who handle corruption cases.
On Monday, Ngilu defended Kalonzo against allegations that he grabbed the land, saying it belongs to the Kamba community.
She said the allegations only prove how non-committal the government is to the war against corruption.
She accused the government of protecting powerful figures implicated in graft and engaging in political witch-hunt.
