Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has tore into Interior PS Karanja Kibicho, accusing him of being behind her troubles in running the county. In an open letter, Governor Waiguru accuses Kibicho of many things including being behind her impeachment, which she survived by a whisker.
”I learnt with consternation that the ill-informed impeachment was carried out with your tacit support. It is on record that during the impeachment process, you variously went round the County with the Assembly members pushing the impeachment leaving leaving no doubt as to what your political desires were,” Waiguru wrote.
The Governor reveals PS Kibicho is still not done with his schemes yet. She claims the Interior PS continues to support and fund schemes to distabalize the county, and make it ungovernable.
”Since the failure of the motion, I am now very disheartened to learn that you have’continued to support a heavily funded and well-orchestrated scheme to destabilize the County.In the most recent occurrence, you digitally took part in a meeting with over 20 MCAs who have ganged up and sworn to make Kirinyaga ungovernable.”
She adds, ”I have confirmed with MCAs who were present that in the course of the meeting, the Assembly Majority Leader put you on speaker phone and in the conversation you beseeched them to stay together and asked them not to split because it was just a matter of time before you and the Kirinyaga Senator took over the reins of BBI in Kirinyaga and in the region.”
Waiguru and Kibicho have been at loggerheads over who is the most superior, given the close relationship the two leaders have with President Uhuru Kenyatta. Whereas the PS is one of President Uhuru’s trusted civil servants, Governor Waiguru is said to have direct ear of the president and they have worked together longer than the PS.
”You indicated in the conversation that you must be seen to be the one “delivering them to the Handshake” and not the Governor, that I was the only one standing in your way,” the Governor reveals.
In her letter, Anne Waiguru urges the PS to stop the political sideshows and join her in fulfilling her promises to people of Kirinyaga.
”I plead with you to kindly reconsider your focus and join me and other leaders in ensuring that Kirinyaga reaches its potential.”
