Kanu has called out on Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru for dragging the retired President Daniel arap Moi into her corruption related allegation.
In an interview on the Jeff Koinange Live show on Wednesday night, Waiguru questioned the validity of a recent Ipsos poll that ranked her the second most corrupt leader in Kenya.
In her statement she said “It (the poll) also ranked me above the former President Moi, who ruled this country for 24 years… I mean, how ridiculous can it get? Everybody knows what we think about the Moi era. Are you saying that I stole more than Moi?”
Her sentiment to linking the former president uproared angered among the KANU political leaders, where they went ahead and asked her to to carry her own cross without involving the retired President.
In a tweet they said,Governor @AnneWaiguru oversaw the historic looting at NYS. It is unfortunate that she dragged Retired President Moi into her situation. The Governor should carry her own cross.

Waiguru dismissed the report by the report insisting that it was sponsored by her political rivals.
The former Devolution Cabinet Secretary also questioned parameters used in ranking leaders in terms of ‘who is the most corrupt’, according to the Ipsos poll.
“I would want you tell me how you measure that: is it measured by the amount of money I have stolen? Who has the facts about the money I have stolen?” Ms Waiguru posed.
“Why am I still here and not in a court of law if I have stolen a single cent from this government?”
Waiguru was in 2016 accused of corruption where Ksh 791 Million NYS was lost while she was the Cabinet Secretary for Devolution.
