Prosecute Waiguru or legalize corruption, says Murkomen – VIDEO

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has called for the prosecution of former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru over the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal, insisting that if that fails to happen then corruption should be legalized in Kenya.

Speaking on Friday, the politician who is a lawyer, said that there is enough evidence to have Ms Waiguru charged in a court of law.

“If Waiguru doesn’t stand trial in court over the NYS scandal, then we should as well legalize corruption so that every one cane have a chance to steal,” Mr Murkomen said.


Murkomen also absolved himself from accusation over his involvement in the corruption saga saying; “I am not the first lawyer to represent criminals, I will not be the last lawyer to represent criminals and I will not carry your (Waiguru) cross.

The politician’s rebuttal comes days after Ms Waiguru appeared to implicated the Mr Murkomen and a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto when she appeared before the Parliamentary Accounts Committee.

Last week Mr Ruto also blasted Ms Waiguru over the same issue.

Ms Waiguru who was since been cleared by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over the matter has also linked Mr Murkomen and Parliament’s Majority Leader Aden Duale to the scandal.
