President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally broken his silence and responded to former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru’s allegations that his office is responsible for her woes and predicament.
In a statement to the press through her lawyer Ahmednassir Abadullahi, Waiguru accused Uhuru’s office of working in cahoots with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to humiliate her to the point of raiding her palatial house in the pretext of looking for money that was looted from the National Youth Service (NYS) – a scandal that saw her resign from Government.
In fact, Waiguru alleged that EACC was acting as a department in the Office of the President and getting orders to humiliate her from the President himself.
However, while addressing the United Nations global meeting on corruption in Nairobi, Uhuru denied Waiguru’s wild allegations saying EACC was not getting orders from his office to do its job, including raiding the home of the former CS.
He said his office has not and will not interfere with the operations of independent institutions tasked with fighting corruption like the EACC, DPP and DCI and termed Waiguru’s allegations as baseless and misleading.
“My office has not and will never interfere with the independence of institutions charged with fighting corruption and anybody who says they have been compromised by my office is mistaken,” said Uhuru.
