‘Let’s wait for court ruling”CS Eugene Wamalwa speaks on orphans mistreatment claims

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.

In an earlier report,Derick and his sister Michelle Nafuna aka Chichi were involved in an interview last Friday, during which they accused their step-siblings of seeking to coerce them out of their house.

The two are currently living at their late father’s house in Karen that was bequeathed to them following the passing on of Yvonne Wamalwa, their mother.

The former VP didn’t leave a will but his widow was granted a letter of administration back in 2003.

However, the grant was changed to include Alice Muthoni, Wamalwa’s elder daughter as a co-administrator, on January 24, 2005.

Derek and Chichi had mentioned the CS as part of the siblings seeking to disinherit them.

At the heart of the family feud is their late father’s Karen home, which was partially paid for by the government following his death.
