Anne Waiguru: NYS Sh10 billion scandal does not shock me
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has said she is not surprised that another scandal has rocked the National Youth Service.Revisiting her days at the helm of NYS at an international forum, Ms Waiguru described her efforts to unearth the rot at the service.
She was speaking on devolution at the Chatham House in London, UK, where she recounted how she invited investigators to probe the Sh791 million scandal that rocked her tenure at NYS.
Waiguru said that, through her lawyers, she had written to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) at least six times between 2016 and January 2018 of this year asking them to make public their findings.
She said she had suggested that a public inquiry be set up so that the truth could come out.
“It is therefore no wonder that three years after I left the ministry, the same NYS department is engulfed in another major scandal of Sh10 billion, 10 times larger than the initial one,” said Waiguru.
