I’m innocent: A plot was hatched to kick me out for looting spree at NYS – Waiguru



Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru has reiterated that she was not involved in the National Youth Service scandal.

Waiguru, who spoke on Friday during the scribes’ end of year party, said a scheme was hatched to remove her from the Devolution ministry for fraudulent deals to take place.

She said the NYS is again embroiled in another major scandal of more than Sh8 billion.

“Are you surprised that the NYS is engulfed in another major scandal of Sh8billion? I blew the whistle when I was there. This shows some people did not want me there,” Waiguru said.

The governor said she invited the DCI to unearth the truth, but there was major political interference.

Waiguru said if she was not pushed out, maybe there would never have been another scandal.

She lauded journalists for reporting on graft and called upon the media to uphold the truth.

Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir, who was present, said the media should not be controlled by the government. He called upon the media to self-regulate.
