Kirinyaga woman rep Purity Ngirici has called out on governor Anne Waiguru for criticizing Interior PS Karanja Kibicho.

Ngirici condemned Waiguru’s move to support those pushing for the removal of Kibicho from office.

During UDA’s rally in Embu on Thursday November 18, Waiguru urged president Uhuru Kenyatta to sack Kibicho for being involved with politics.

The governor accused Kibicho of neglecting his duties and focusing on politics.

“I want to tell the president that Kirinyaga doesn’t lack people to employ, but Kibicho has left work in the office and gone to play politics,” stated Waiguru.

Ngirici has however defended Kibicho while claiming that Waiguru was ungrateful since Kibicho had done a lot for her government.

 

She went on to mention some of the development projects that the PS had overseen including the Wang’uru stadium and the robust road network in Mwea constituency.

 

“It is courtesy of PS Eng. Dr. Karanja Kibicho that we have seen Wang’uru stadium and the overall improvement of road network in Mwea constituency,” Ngirici noted.

She accused Waiguru of using her recent ties with UDA to deface other leaders from Kirinyaga while saying that all leaders deserve to be respected.

Waiguru dumped Jubilee for DP Ruto’s UDA last month, a decision she said was based on her constituents.

“I have asked if it is betrayal if I moved? But the message I have gotten is that you must be careful to stay relevant in politics. The people are the ones who decide for you. When they decide you stand, you will do it.  And the people of Kirinyaga have spoken. We have shifted allegiance,” Waiguru said.

Waiguru and Ngirici, who is also eyeing the county’s top seat, are expected to face each other in a hot contest for UDA’s ticket in the Kirinyaga gubernatorial race.
