Monday September 2, 2019-Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru shocked everyone yesterday after she failed to show up during Deputy President William Ruto tour of the county.
Her Deputy, Peter Ndambiri, also gave Ruto’s event a wide birth thus raising eyebrows.
Ruto had visited the county on a fundraising agenda at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kirinyaga.
Speaking at the event, Kirinyaga Central MP, John Wambugu, disclosed that they were not aware of Waiguru’s whereabouts.
In addition, the governor is reported not to have sent an apology for skipping an event attended by her party’s deputy leader.
The DP was, therefore, welcomed by at least 20 members of the County Assembly, who also attended the function.
Reports confirmed that the MCAs claimed to have been instructed by an unidentified individual to skip Ruto's event at Kangaita Catholic Church.
The MCAs, led by nominated ward representative Lucy Njeri, further revealed that they defied the order to snub the event vowing that they were fully behind Ruto.
They also claimed that Waiguru's former sentiments concerning Mt. Kenya being open for an Alliance with opposition leader Raila Odinga was but her personal views.
All four members of Parliament from Kirinyaga County, Gichugu’s Gichimu Githinji, Mwea’s Wachira Kabinga, Ndia’s Gorge Kariuki and Woman Represenative Wangui Ngirichi were present at the fundraiser.
