Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru has won big after the powerful Principal Secretary in charge of the Ministry of interior and Coordination of National Government Programmes Karanja Kibicho declared that he has no interest in Kirinyaga governor’s position.
The powerful PS noted that he is not interested in the Governor’s seat as Ms. Waiguru has claimed before. “I am the PS in charge of the Ministry of the interior. I have never stood anywhere and announced that I want to be elected as the governor of Kirinyaga. I have no interest in the seat,” the powerful PS said as quoted from The People Daily.
This is a great relief since governor Waiguru has always perceived Dr. Karanja Kibicho as her rival and she has even before claimed that he was the one behind her goes in the Kirinyaga political battles.
Outspoken Blogger Dennis Itumbi has also come out claiming that the PS was responsible for the motion of impeachment against governor Waiguru that flopped in the senate.
“You are right at the centre of Kirinyaga Politics Mr. Karanja Kibicho hizi story ambia wale si wa Kirinyaga. You did well to organize @AnneWaiguru impeachment. Now, order the arrest of Ruaraka Land Suspects, one is not so far from your office! Wacha ni watch Mr.Ibu movie!”@Dennis Itumbi noted.
The embattled governor can now rest and oversee the Development of her county where she is having internal wrangles with almost all the leaders from Kirinyaga including a majority of the county assembly ward representatives.
She is also facing still competition from the woman representative Hon Purity Ngirici who has been using her husband to attack Governor Waiguru. The governor is also at loggerheads with her own deputy Mr. Ndambiri who is gearing himself up to succeed her.
