Embattled Kirinyaga Anne Waiguru has hailed the Senate eleven-member committee decision to drop her impeachment motion.
The Senate committee said they observed that the County Assembly failed to link Governor Waiguru to the allegations of abuse of office, gross misconduct, and violation of the law
Governor Waiguru termed the verdict by the Committee as a “historic victory” and insisted that her impeachment process was politically instigated to tarnish her name.
“The conclusion of my impeachment process today marks a remarkable and historic victory not only for me but for the people of Kirinyaga County. It is profoundly clear that this impeachment process did not meet the required threshold and that it was all a choreographed plan of events that was aimed at tarnishing my name,” said Waiguru in a press statement adding that “But as I said before, I forgive the forces behind it,” the Kirinyaga Governor said.
According to Waiguru, her problems were triggered by her support for BBI and the handshake between President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. She termed repeated questions on her integrity as lies that would eventually turn into truth.

“I will not stop my support or change my commitment to what will be for the betterment of our children, for women and the country as a whole,” said the Governor.
The governor also praised his legal team led by her husband Kamotho Waiganjo.
“I am grateful to my able team of lawyers who tirelessly perused volumes of evidence in rebuttal to the allegations
raised against me and ably proved that none of them was in any way true.
Special thanks to my Husband who has been amazingly supportive throughout this process. A friend of mine recently said that there are husbands from heaven and then there are husbands who come walking. You are definitely one from heaven,” Waiguru said.
Krinyaga residents, however, expressed mixed reaction over the Senate Committee’s decision to acquit the Governor on the impeachment charges against her with celebration seen in Mwea.
