Opposition leader Raila Odinga now says he had nothing to do with Devolution CS Anne Waiguru’s woes.
He also rubbished allegations that he defamed her by suggesting she was the chief architect behind the theft of Sh791 million from NYS.
In response to a petition filed by ex-CS Waiguru, Raila says that Waiguru has failed to give a satisfactory explanation regarding the NYS scandal.
Waiguru wants Raila to substantiate his allegations against her and or pay for her internationally damaged reputation.
However, the outspoken leader dismissed Ms Waiguru saying she was the overall responsible officer on the said transactions where millions were lost.
“I deny each and every allegations contained in the petition by Waiguru, ”states Raila.
Raila further denies receiving a demand letter and notice of intention to sue over the said defamatory allegations.
“The defendants denies that the words complained of were in any way ,malicious and calculated to bring the plaintiff into public scandal and further denies that she suffered any loss of damage,” he argues.
He also wants Waiguru’s petition dismissed without being heard.
