Bunge la Wananchi a lobby group now wants president Uhuru Kenyatta not to defend the embattled Kirinyaga County governor Ann Waiguru and to ensure the senate handles her case the same way it handled former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu’s.
Addressing the media, Bunge la Wananchi Chairman JohnMark Ababu says Waiguru does not deserve any political support and the law should be followed to the later so that the country does not subject itself to double standards in the fight against corruption.
‘‘Mr President please we want you to stay away and let the Senate handle this issue the same way they did with Kiambu. Waiguru should go home very early .The people of Kirinyaga have spoken and we shall not allow double play in the fight against corrupt officers.’’ Ababu says.
He further sent the same message to ODM Party leader Raila Odinga who is being accused of meeting Waiguru in a plot to save her from the senate ouster.
‘‘We don’t want BBI politics in this matter let the Senate expedite it independently. This is not the first time Waiguru is facing corruption charges therefore the senate should send her home.’’ He added.
The senate will on Tuesday give out names of the 11 members who will probe Waiguru’s impeachment before reporting back to the house.
