, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 24 – Former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to set up a Commission of Inquiry to investigate allegations made in an affidavit filed earlier by Josephine Kabura.

Waiguru in a statement says the inquiry is the only way Kenyans can be able to know the whole truth about the loss of Sh791 million at the National Youth Service (NYS).

“Due to the excessive interest and attention on this matter from Kenyans, I have requested His Excellency the President to set up a Commission of Inquiry, under the provisions of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, into the grave allegations made in the Josephine Kabura affidavit so that the truth can come out in full public limelight,” Waiguru said on Sunday.

Overview
  • Waiguru in a statement says the inquiry is the only way Kenyans can be able to know the whole truth about the loss of Sh791 million at the National Youth Service (NYS).
  • She regrets that the affidavit was treated with a lot of weight even after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) cleared her.
  • Waiguru still claims that the allegations were ill intended and only meant to tarnish her reputation.

She regrets that the affidavit was treated with a lot of weight even after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) cleared her.

Waiguru still claims the allegations were ill intended and only meant to tarnish her reputation.

“If you can remember, the said affidavit somehow appeared only one week after the EACC had produced a letter clearing me of any involvement in the theft at NYS. Anyone can deduce what the intentions of the affidavit were,” she says.

Waiguru says it is unfortunate that the affidavit is being treated like the truth of the NYS scandal despite her testimonies to all enquiries when needed.

“A narrative continues to evolve that assumes the truth of an affidavit by a person already charged with several crimes, ignoring the fact that the natural inclination of an accused person is to malign their accusers; it is never to name their accomplices,” she said.

In the affidavit filed in the High Court in February this year, Kabura swore that Waiguru was the architect of the Sh791 million scam, leading to fresh investigations by the EACC.
