Kenya’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has dismissed rumours that Governor Kiraitu Murungi and his family have been arrested over alleged corruption links.
On Tuesday, a document shared on social media platforms alleged EACC sleuths had nabbed the Meru Governor over the misappropriation of ksh2 million ($20000).
The commission termed the document false, asking Kenyans to ignore it.
Public members linked Kiraitu’s arrest to his recent statement on the Jubilee party. The Meru County boss described the ruling party as clueless, rudderless, planless, and disorganized.
“During the launch of Jubilee at Kasarani on September 16, 2016, (Deputy President William) Ruto described ODM as ‘a clueless, rudderless, planless and disorganized’ party. This description now squarely applies to Jubilee.
“The Jubilee party is full of horror stories only told in private, behind closed doors. Jubilee is involved in a terrible orgy of suicides, fratricides and infanticides,” said Kiraitu.
Kenya’s ruling party lost a parliamentary seat to UDA in President Uhuru’s backyard in a by-election held last week Thursday. UDA’s John Njuguna garnered 21,773 against Kariri Njama of Jubilee, who got 21,263.
However, it won Muguga’s ward representative seat, also in Kenyatta’s stronghold.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
