Say sorry to Waiguru and Uhuru, trio told

By: WAMBUGU KANYI

Three Nyeri MPs calling for Devolution CS Anne Waiguru’s resignation should apologise or be voted out, Mukurwe-ini politician Dick Wathika has said.

Waiguru is under pressure over the loss of Sh791 million in her ministry’s National Youth Service.

Wathika said Kieni’s Kanini Kega, Nyeri Town’s Esther Murugi and Mukurwe-ini’s Kabando wa Kabando have embarrassed her and the President.

“They are working with the opposition to undermine the Jubilee government,” he told mourners at a burial in Mathira on Tuesday.

“If they don’t eat humble pie and apologise, the electorate will punish them in 2017.”

Wathika, the former Makadara MP, accused the legislators of spreading propaganda that contradicts government investigations.

They are promoting the opposition’s agenda by making the government appear corrupt and inefficient, he said.

Wathika urged them to stop fighting President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.

The CID has recommended the prosecution of 23 Devolution ministry officials over fraudulent payments to three companies.

Waiguru has been listed as a prosecution witness. Three attempts by MPs to sack her have failed.

The latest attempt by Nandi Hills MP Alfred was kicked out for not meeting the constitutional threshold to impeach.

Wathika said donor funding is being circulated through political activists to destabilise the government.
