The irregular payment, its said was for a piece of land in South ngiriama which she had earlier denied remitting funds to clear the payment.

Through a post on her official social media page, Ann described the summon and the raid by EACC as political witch-hunt, however, she arrived at the EACC headquarters, integrity center,accompanied by her lawyer ready for questioning.

“Last time I said … ‘on BBI let me keep quiet a bit…’ immediately, EACC raided my office…  Recently I said am ‘… introspecting on the political way forward…’  and again, immediately I get EACC summons, complete with all the subtle threatening inflexibilities… and media alerts on an alleged payment of ksh52million.

“The alleged payment was allocated by County Assembly – for a pending bill that was acquired in 2010, for subdivision, allocation and cadastral mapping of over 7000 acres of South Ngariama Settlement Scheme and which EACC knows has not even been paid,”  Waiguru stated on Saturday, September 4.

According to the county chief, the amount in question was meant to sort a bill under her predecessor in 2010 that was to cater for allocation and subdivision of land meant for settlement scheme adding that the amount was yet to be paid.
