History was made after Kamotho Waiganjo was introduced as the first Gentleman of Kirinyaga County.
The move saw the change from County Ladies to County Spouses Association since  area Governor Anne Waiguru is the only one married and holding the tittle of a governor.
Initially there  were two first Gentlemen in the country before the demise of the Bomet Governor Joyce Kaboso on July 29 ,2019.
Following Kaboso's death her husband Edwin Abonyo automatically ceased to hold the tittle .
Waiganjo  on marrying  the newly elected Kirinyaga Governor on July 2019 assumed the now coveted title  but has never appeared publicly with his spouse until  this morning.

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu lost her husband before getting elected to the prestigious position in 2017 hence her status remains so.
This development came up this morning during the opening of a cancer diagnostic and treatment center at the Kerugoya referral hospital .
While opening the facility in the company of the Kisumu first Lady Dorothy Nyongo , Waiguru said the change from first ladies to first spouses would be effected immediately .
The facility also received an assortment of modern equipment to treat the killer disease from various partner s while Waiganjo served as the host .
Some of such partners were Roche,Women for cancer ,Inte national cancer institute, Africa cancer foundation and Chai .

It will also relief relatives from the exorbitant costs of treating their kin .
Waiguru also announced soon the center which  will headed by county oncologist Dr N Naomi will soon start offering chemotherapy services to patients.
