ODM party leader Raila Odinga should not make his Capitol Hill office a centre of corruption, Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici has said.
Speaking on Friday, Ngirici claimed that politicians with questionable records were being sanitised at Raila’s office.
“That everybody who misappropriates public funds is being sanitised at Capitol Hill… That Capitol Hill of corruption will one day be closed down,” she said.
“If Raila is just and fought for our democracy, do not agree to be used to spoil what Kenyans have fought hard for. We are taxpaying Kenyans and we want justice.”
Ngirici, without naming names, seemed to be talking about Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
Waiguru was impeached early in the week by MCAs for gross misconduct and misappropriation of funds. Waiguru dismissed the claims.
This verbal attack comes barely days after Raila met with Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru for private talks at his Capitol Hill office.
Waruguru has been a fierce supporter of Ruto, who went round bashing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) championed by Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Her surprise appearance at Capitol Hill in company of National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohamed set tongues wagging.
Immediately she left Capitol Hill, the MP began to preach about the benefits of uniting the country.
PLEA TO UHURU
Members of the Kirinyaga County Assembly on Friday, June 12, begged President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga to oversee that governor Anne Waiguru is ousted.
The MCAs, in their official outfits, went on their knees and used a melodious song to deliver their message to the two.
“Woi, woi, Uhuru/Raila tunaomba usituangushe,” went the song.
“The case against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on the misappropriation of funds should not be done by a select committee of 11 members, who will be bribed with a million or two million shillings.
“We want the motion to be conducted by the 67 senators in the senate. We are not asking but demanding as the people of Kirinyaga. I hope that is very clear,” Ngirici stated.
“The legislature is an independent arm of the government and they must behave as such,” she added.
23 out of the 33 MCAs in the county voted for Waiguru’s removal on allegations of gross misconduct and abuse of office, while only six abstained.
Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka has since been notified of the County Assembly’s resolution and the process of either impeaching or saving the governor will be filed on the floor on Tuesday, June 16.
Waiguru had filed a case challenging the impeachment motion but Justice Weldon Korir declined to overturn it.
