, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 10 – Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru will Tuesday appear before the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission to be questioned over claims of corruption at the Devolution Ministry and departments under her watch.
Waiguru, who has been accused of failing to take responsibility for misappropriation of funds will be questioned by the anti-graft body for the first time since reports of financial impropriety rocked her ministry.
Her tribulations began mid this year when details emerged showing that Sh791 million had been lost through dubious deals and flawed procurements at the National Youth Service.
She later confirmed the loss of the monies saying she had invited the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to probe the NYS accounts.
The DCI report revealed that at least Sh712 million was stolen from NYS by adding zeroes to transactions in the famous government IFMIS system.
Details later emerged of dubious transactions at the Youth Enterprise Fund which are under investigation.
Last week, there was renewed controversy when PS Peter Mangiti tabled an asset register before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament showing inflated costs.
Mangiti has since said the details were raw and misrepresented facts.
