Kenyans react to Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru's statement on graft claims

By Patel Okumu | November 5th 2015

Embattled Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru took to social media to defend herself against corruption allegations.

She denied having a Sh1.7 million television and a piano in her office.

Soon after her Facebook post, Kenyans took to Facebook and Twitter to show their support and displeasure on the happenings at the Devolution ministry.

Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi: Thought for Godly: It takes men of goodwill to do nothing for evil to prevail. Evil thrives on lies. Waiguru is a victim of lies.

He quickly followed it by another tweet. "Repeating a lie does not make it truth. Anne Waiguru has been battered for 6 straight months... Let's give her a hearing."

Jacob Juma: If Anne Waiguru leaves office, how will the Opposition sell corruption against JAP in 2017 to voters? Let her stay.

Odhiambo Oliech: Your excuses do not hold water anymore. Let me remind you, when security deteriorated sometimes back, Joseph ole Lenku and David Kimaiyo were shown the door not because they patrolled the streets in police uniform with AK 47 to ensure security, but because they were unable to preside over their staff to do what is right for the country.

Timothy K Tuikong: I am your employer and I have said a big NO. As the head of ministry, you can't absolve yourself from accountability.
