Waiguru fights back
Governor Anne Waiguru's ardent supporter James Mugo reacting to the endorsement of Senator Charles Kibiru after he was endorsed as the Kirinyaga County Jubilee spokesman yesterday
Barely 24 hours after Senator Charles Kibiru was declared the Kirinyaga County political spokesman , area Governor Anne Waiguru has come guns brazing and dismissed him as an absentee leader .
Waiguru wondered where Kibiru has been since he was elected in 2017 only to surface upon learning she had defected to the winning party, UDA.
Through her supporters, Waiguru said Kibiru was a stranger to the county since no one knows him despite being a Senator.
According to one of her ardent supporters Joseph Mugo the purported elevation of Kibiru by a section of allegedly handpicked pressure groups was inconsequential.
“Am shocked beyond words to hear Kibiru has been appointed the spokesman of a skeleton party which died long time ago, “Mugo claimed.
Waiguru had assembled her troops at the Buffalo hotel , in Kagio town where she also challenged Kibiru to state where in the county he had even built a pit latrine .
Said the governor through the supporters “ the likes of Kibiru are jealous of the massive development my administration has been able to realise within the last two years hence salivating over my projects ,”.
Mugo on the other hand told Kibiru to keep off the affairs of the county more so he had never been visible in the area since he was elected until yesterday when he was endorsed the county spokesman.
A Mwea based priest James Mwangi making his stand known over hie unwavering support for the Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru during a hastily convened press conference at the Buffalo Bay hotel ,Kagio this afternoon to counter the endorsement of senator Charles Kibiru as the local Jubilee spokesman yesterday by four local interests groups
“The pressure and interest groups which endorsed Kibiru to the position represented their own stomachs and not the views of the county , “he said.
This afternoon the Waiguru troops told Kibiru to forget the purported endorsement the way he forgot his mother’s breasts.
The endorsement according to those involved was meant to ensure there was no leadership vacuum following Waiguru’s defection to the UDA.
Jubilee chairman Murithi Kangara said in the event president Uhuru Kenyatta visited the county Kibiru would be the leader to welcome the Head of State since the governor had abandoned the very party that propelled her to the gubernatorial position.
