Anne Mumbi Waiguru is the second governor of Kirinyaga County. During the 2017 general elections, Ann Waiguru was elected Governor of Kirinyaga county, making her one of only three women governors in Kenya.
Few however know that Waiguru is not her father’s name. It is the name Anne Mumbi assumed when she wed the first love of her life.
Unknown to many, is Anne divorced her Ex-husband Tony Waiguru Njuguna. They are said to have first met at Nairobi Lighthouse Church in the 1990s where they both worshiped.
As Anne rose through the ranks, it’s alleged that cracks started emerging in their solid marriage and they divorced. Anne retained the surname even after their divorce.
After a long time without talking with each other they later solved their issues when Anne became Cabinet Secretary for Devolution.
Together, Tony and Anne sired three boys – Ian, Dan, and Wabu. Tony has a law firm and also owns a church in Kiambu and lives a quiet life.
The two have since moved on and married different partners. Currently, the County boss is married to city lawyer, Kamotho Waiganjo.
The two tied a knot in a traditional Kikuyu wedding held at Kiamugumo Primary School in Gichugu.
