In Politics Friends Become Enemies Every Other Day

They say that there are no permanent enemies in the world of politics but permanent common interests but in Kenya, it appears are no permanent friends either and this came out clearly after former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru dropped a bombshell on the  NYS missing millions.

On Tuesday, in an affidavit filed in court, Anne Waiguru linked close associates of the Deputy William Ruto to the 791 million shillings missing from the National Youth Service kitty. Waiguru named the personal assistant to Deputy President, Mr Farouk Kibet, and Mr. Aden Duale who is also the leader of the majority in the National Assembly and Mr. Kipchumba Murkomen who is the senator for Elgeyo Marakwet as the masterminds of the missing millions.

What has shocked many is the fact that Mr. Murkomen and Mr. Duale were one of the toughest defenders of Anne Waiguru at the time when the opposition CORD, wanted her investigated for the alleged mismanagement of the cash. According to Alfred Keter, a member of the National Assembly, Duale and Murkomen are the ones who rallied members of parliament to withdraw their signatures so as to make it impossible for the impeachment of Anne Waiguru by the National Assembly.

“Anne Waiguru is going nowhere,” Mr. Duale said at one time as the public pressure mounted on ANNE Waiguru to step down for investigations but after being adversely mentioned, the song has now changed. “You belong to Kamiti!” that is what Mr. Duale said yesterday at a press conference while referring to Anne Waiguru.

It is alleged that more than 800 million shillings might have been stolen from NYS under some unclear circumstances something that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is trying to find out. Many people, however, have lost their trust in the anti-graft body after it had cleared Anne Waiguru of any wrongdoing concerning the loss of the money at NYS.

It is estimated that Kenya loses more than 500 billion shillings annually through corruption both in the public and private sector with the public sector leading.
