Water minister Charity Ngilu has been questioned by the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission in connection with alleged graft in her ministry. The minister arrived shortly after 9 a.m. and left an hour later without talking to journalists, who had camped at Kaccs Integrity Centre headquarters Friday. I am fine, was all Mrs Ngilu said before being ushered into her official car that sped off in the direction of the city centre. Addressing the press shortly afterwards, Kacc director PLO Lumumba said Mrs Ngilu was responding to summons by the Commission. He would not give details of the grilling but explained that the Commission would make appropriate recommendations once they are done with investigations. Madam Ngilu was asked to come here today (Friday) to respond to allegations made about her and a number of officials regarding activities that may be considered economic crimes, the director said. We wanted to hear her side of the story." The minister who arrived at the Commission offices with only her bodyguard met detectives who are investigating the corruption allegations. Claims of corruption in the Water ministry were first raised by Mwangi Kiunjuri, now Public Works assistant minister, in October soon after he was transferred from the water docket. Mr Kiunjuri who has been at the Kacc offices twice to present his evidence said the award of contracts at the ministry was not transparent and could have led to huge losses of public money. Mr Kiunjuri also claimed there was nepotism in the award of tenders. The assistant minister, who blames Mrs Ngilu for his exit from the ministry, alleged that up to eight companies and a non-governmental organisation that had close links with the minister had done business with the ministry. A source said the minister took the detectives through a huge bundle of documents. Prof Lumumba told the media: She has seen our investigators and we believe she will continue to work with us. We shall recall her if its necessary or when there are issues to be clarified. This was the understanding with the minister, the director explained.
