Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa on Tuesday, came clean about claims that he mistreated orphans in a family property row.
In an interview with Citizen TV, the CS termed the claims as fake news and urged members of the public to wait for a court verdict whose hearing was slated for February 2019.
“I think that is a matter that is in court and is coming up on th of February that is next week and I think then that Kenyans will know the truth.
“Otherwise, what has been going around is what I would call fake news and I don’t wish to comment on fake news,” he clarified.
A section of the late Kijana Wamalwa’s family had accused the CS of abandoning them.
“We always get that question. What about your uncle? And I always tell people, if he was helping me, honestly, would I be here? If our uncle (CS Wamalwa) was who he would like people to think he is then as far as we are concerned we wouldn’t be here talking to you right now,” posed Derick Mboya, Kijana Wamalwa’s son.
