Governor Waiguru questions EACC raid after BBI remarks

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has linked a recent raid by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives to her remarks in regard to the BBI bill.

The Governor openly noted that the people of Mt. Kenya region will now engage like minded individuals in regards to the future of the region.

This is after the Court of Appeal upheld a decision by the High Court nullifying the amendment bill to the delight of Deputy President William Ruto and people from his UDA camp.

Taking on social media, Waiguru questioned the raid to the statement as she poses to asks whether it was coincidence or witch-hunt.

“Last time I said … “on BBI let me keep quiet a bit..” immediately, EACC raided my office… Recently I said am “… introspecting on the political way forward…” and again immediately I get EACC summons complete with all the subtle threatening inflexibilities…

And media alerts on an alleged payment of 52m (allocated by County Assembly – for a pending bill that was acquired in 2010, for sub division, allocation and cadastral mapping of over 17,000 acres of South Ngariama Settlement Scheme) and which EACC knows HAS NOT EVEN BEEN PAID! Is it just coincidence, witch-hunt, or the usual attempt to shape narratives for 2022 succession politics?

In August, the Governor noted that the BBI meant well for Kenyans but people must respect the court decision.

“Kenya will go on. BBI intended well but we must respect the constitutional authority of the courts and find other legitimate means to achieve Kenya’s unity and prosperity. And for some of us, it’s time for serious introspection on the political way forward.” Said Waiguru
