POLITICS ?- Anne Waiguru, Moses Kuria on EACC Radar Over Alleged Graft

The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) has suggested graft charges against Jubilee Party defectors, Anne Waiguru and Moses Kuria.

The commission has since introduced their files against the politicians to the Director of Public Prosecutions for additional action.

The Kirinyaga Governor and the Gatundu MP are facing separate graft charges.

On Waiguru, the EACC charges the governor got imprests for non-existent travels, claims that included conspicuously during her failed impeachment in June 2020.

EACC is targeting Waiguru alongside senior officials in her administration, among them the finance chief officer Mugo Ndathi. Others are acting director administration, director accounting services and assistant director accounting services.

As indicated by EACC, Waiguru received Sh10.6 million in travel stipends for non-existent outings to United States, United Kingdom, France, Morocco, India, Germany and Abu Dhabi.

EACC has also been investigating Waiguru over plans to make sporadic payment of Sh52.8 million to a land surveying company for the development of New South Ngariama Scheme in 2006.

Moses Kuria then again is asserted to have received Sh3 million through Finishline Construction, an organization linked to his sibling.

The firm had been awarded tender for development dormitory at Wamwangi Secondary School for Sh12 million by the Ministry of Education.

“Investigations revealed that one of the directors of Finishline Construction is a brother to the MP and the MP was the beneficial recipient of the Sh3 million,” the report read.

Waiguru gave an assertion on social media crying politicoal witchhunt.

“This recommendation by EACC is pure politics intended to punish my move to UDA and to send a message to would be defectors as to the false charges that awaits them if they dare,” she wrote in part.
