BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,2ND OCT 2018-Kirinyaga county governor Ann Waiguru has asked the ethics and anti-corruption Commission to investigate NYS scandal suspect Josephine Kabura to determine Who she was working for.Also she want it known where she took the ‘looted NYS money’ in the sacks.
The move comes just days after EACC gazetted that further investigations should be carried out into Josephine Kabura’s affidavit.
Through a message on her twiiter account Waiguru says nothing should left to chance.
This is progress. However, I agree with the DPP that there should be further investigations,” Waiguru said.
“If both EACC and DCI have established that Kabura was lying who then was she working for? … Whose agent was she?”.
On August 26, Waiguru gave EACC seven days to make public findings on the investigation of Kabura’s affidavit.
In a notice dated September 28, EACC said it commenced investigations following the affidavit and the loss of Sh791m.
“EACC together with the DCI conducted investigations and established that the allegations made against the suspects were bereft of truth, were denied in totality and there was no evidence in support of the same,” EACC said.
EACC further said a report was compiled and forwarded to the DPP on June 12 recommending that the complainant be charged with the offence of knowingly misleading a person.
“On July 11, the Director of Public Prosecution returned the inquiry file recommending further investigations,” EACC added.
Shortly after, the Governor, who was Devolution Cabinet secretary when the Sh791 million scandal was unearthed in 2015, went to social media praising the EACC for a job well done.
On February 16, 2016, Kabura, one of the key suspects in the Sh791 million theft at the NYS placed Waiguru at the centre of the scandal.
In a 16-page affidavit filed in court, Kabura, whose account received the money, described her alleged relationship with Waiguru.
However Waiguru dismissed her as a “crazy woman” whom she has never met and came to know about only after the scandal broke.
