Waiguru Links Kenya’s Deputy President with Missing NYS Millions

The National Youth Service mystery of the whereabouts of more than 800 million shillings took a new twist on Tuesday after the former Devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru named those she thought aided the theft of the millions.

In an interesting turn of events, Anne Waiguru now has directly linked the deputy president William Ruto to the saga. In a fresh court filings, Waiguru has said that the personal assistant to the deputy president and Senator Kipchumba Murkomen had a hand in the disappearance of close to 800 million shillings belonging to National Youth Service.

Anne Waiguru landed in a hot soup after it was alleged that more than a billion shillings were missing at NYS in one that has been termed as the largest wave of theft under the current government. She finally bowed to pressure from both the opposition as well as some civil societies and resigned from her position as a cabinet secretary shortly after vowing not to step down.

Ever since the ensuing of the NYS saga, Anne Waiguru had maintained that she was not aware of the loss of any money at NYS and said that there was only an attempt but the money was reversed through IFMIS. Few months later, she confirmed that indeed 791 million shillings had been lost at NYS and said that she was a whistleblower.

She has maintained her innocence until Tuesday when she claimed in an affidavit filed before a court that Mr. Farouk Kibet, a close ally to Ben Kethi who is already being probed concerning the millions, are some of the people who staged the massive theft of the taxpayers’ money at the National Youth Service.

She says, Kipchumba Murkomen, senator for Elgeyo Marakwet who has been her great defender and a close ally to deputy president William Ruto, visited her office several times. She adds that during the visits, Kipchumba Murkomen was out to try and convince her to make sure that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations stops its investigations into the National Youth Service funds. She says Murkomen came as a representative of Mr. Gethi and Ms Kabura who are already being charged of the offence.

The NYS saga is still being unfolded and now that those in the political wing have started being mentioned, what awaits is storm.
