Jubilee Kirinyaga gubernatorial candidate Ann Mumbi Waiguru has moved to court seeking to have the report by Public Account Committee which was adapted by Parliament quashed.

Waiguru also wants the Ethics and Anti-corruption  Commission barred from conducting a thorough lifestyle audit .

In the period the former CS wants the commission restrained from commencing fresh investigations.

She argues that the findings of PAC on the special Audit report dated May 2016 on the Accounts of NYS :that she is responsible for the entire loss of public funds at the ministry during her tenure is irrational.

She argues that in reaching its findings PAC relied heavily on the uncorroborated, contradictory and false evidence of Josphine Kabura .

“No evidence was producer before PAC linking me to the companies allegedly paid within the record time of delivery of goods and services,” Waiguru says in court documents.

Through lawyer Issa Mansour,   She further claims that the decisions of the PAC is not only irrational but also unreasonable in view of the fact that there was no evidence of impropriety by her at the ministry and NYS to support a finding that she contravened provision of chapter 6.

The lawyer submitted that,  the committee disregarded the evidence of Ndegwa Muhoro, the DCI director, who had investigated the matter and found out that documents relating to the NYS scandal were found in the houses of suspects already facing prosecution.

Mansur said there is no new evidence to warrant a decision for fresh investigations against Waiguru, and that the decision is an abuse of office.

Waiguru, in her sworn affidavit, denied involvement in the scandal, stating that her name was brought in as a scapegoat to hide those behind the looting.

 

They were directed to Serve the parties and then take a hearing date for the main Petition.
