Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho has finally broken silence on the embattled Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru’s impeachment.
Speaking during an interview Wednesday 17 June, Kibicho cleared the air on his alleged involvement in Waiguru’s ouster, stating that he had no reason whatsoever to have Waiguru impeached.
“I have heard these allegations. People should stop deep-sea fishing. It is now a public thing and has generated public interest, even reported in the media. I want to face my accusers and settle this matter,” Kibicho said.
Kibicho further explained that he and the Kirinyaga County boss are serving in the same ruling Jubilee Party and he had no reason to have her ousted.
“Waiguru is a Jubilee governor. I work for the Jubilee government. I can’t start fighting the system. I have no intention to do so whatsoever,” he stated.
The PS further aserted that the County Assembly Members of Kirinyaga and the Senate had a mandate to work without external pressure adding that he had not expressed any interest in vying for any political position as was earlier alleged.
“I also have the right to defend myself from baseless accusations and rumours. I come from Kirinyaga County but have never declared interest in politics and I have no intention to do so. I am a public servant. Why would I engage in local politics? To gain what?” he posed.
“It’s two years to the polls. I should have started campaigning if I wanted to join politics. People must carry their own cross instead of dragging in my name,” he maintained.
