Saturday July 20, 2019-Kirinyaga County Governor, Anne Mumbi Waiguru has joined a list of Central Kenya politicians in opposing Punguza Mizigo initiative engineered by Thirdway Alliance party leader Dr Ekuru Aukot.
Speaking on Saturday, Waiguru termed Aukot's idea as “over-ambitious”.
The governor said that as much as it is people-driven, it had failed to get necessary support from stakeholders.
“I think that the concept of Punguza Mizigo on reducing the burden of Wanjiku is laudable. We should focus our limited resources to development and service delivery as opposed to unnecessary recurrent expenditure such as allowances and travel. The proposals are over-ambitious and crafted in such a way that they do not get necessary support from stakeholders,” Waiguru said.
Waiguru’s sentiments were echoed by Muranga Senator Irungu Kang'ata who said the initiative could die on arrival if the political bigwigs — President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga — do not endorse them.
