Tuesday November 29, 2016 – Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader, Raila Odinga, has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of protecting former Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Miss Anne Waiguru, from prosecution over the Sh 1.6 billion National Youth Service (NYS) scandal.
In a statement to news room on Monday, Raila described Miss Waiguru as President Kenyatta’s “protectorate” in his latest attack against the Jubilee administration’s “failure to fight corruption”.
““So protected was Ms Waiguru by the Head of State that calls by none other than the Deputy President William Ruto for her prosecution on the Sh 1.6 billion scam had fell on deaf ears,” said Raila who is also the ODM party leader.
“The protection Ms Waiguru is enjoying clearly demonstrates that the NYS scam is President Kenyatta’s scam and its chief architect is his protectorate,” Raila added.
He concluded by saying Waiguru is still free despite many calls from even the DP for the dirty woman to be prosecuted.
“The fact that Ms Waiguru has not been prosecuted when most officials mentioned in the scam have appeared in the dock was proof of the President’s protection,” he said.
