    Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza caused a stir when she announced that her husband Murega Baichu is the new Meru Youth Service Patron and the Meru hustlers ambassador.

    She however made it clear that Baichu will not receive a single cent for the work he will do as he will be serving on a volunteer basis.

    The governor received a backlash for turning county affairs into family matters because that was not the first time the couple was making headlines over such issues.

    Taking to social media on Saturday, Mwangaza clapped back at critics saying that she would have not become governor if it were not for Baichu.

    She recounted how Baichu, who is a musician and guitarist, stood by her in her campaign when no politician offered to help her in her political journey.

    “Through your talent I was able to hold campaign rallies and visit home to home as we ‘okolead’. Through your belief and unequivocal support I became the best woman rep in the whole of Kenya. You agreed to sacrifice yourself and decided selflessly to work without pay and allowances,” she said.

    According to her, she had to seek Baichu’s support in running the government after he successfully campaigned for her. 

    She further expressed hope her husband will do a great job on the responsibilities bestowed upon him.

    “I would be a hypocrite if I did not ask for your support as I govern Meru county especially due to the manner in which you single handedly supported me during my campaigns; with no posters, banners or billboards, you are the one that supported me. Thank you for magnanimously accepting this philanthropic appointment,” Mwangaza said.

    She also promised the people of Meru that she will deliver on her mandate and they should not be worried about conflict of interest.

    “To the people of Meru, you elected me and I will deliver. There will be no conflict of interest just as when I served you as the woman rep and delivered beyond reasonable doubt. I will deliver as your governor,” Mwangaza stated.
