Kirinyaga County Governor, H.E. Anne Waiguru was today heckled during her developmental tour of Kigumo Town, Kirinyaga County. The Governor was to officially open the brand new Kagumo market; and open it she did, complete with pomp and colour.
Everything was going so well for the Governor, until she decided to attack the area MCA whom she accused of disrespecting her. She went ahead to deny the area MCA Kinyua Wangui a chance to address his people. When it became apparent that the people wouldn’t allow her to continue speaking without hearing from their MCA first, the Governor reluctantly invited him atop the dais, amid wild cheers.
The MCA then went ahead to thank the Mrs Waiguru for the good work her administration is doing development wise but reiterated his support for
the Deputy President’s TangaTanga movement, arguing that he was merely fulfilling his constituents’ wishes, a remark which elicited wild cheers of approval from the crowd. The event ended shortly thereafter with the Governor walking away amid tight security and loud boos.
Later on, Mrs. Waiguru declared that the whole spectacle was planned by her detractors who paid goons to come and disrupt her event. There has been bad blood between her and the Mutira ward representative owing to their support for the Kieleweke and Tanganga brigades respectively.
