Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has turned against President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga over the failed BBI reggae.
In a statement that sent tongues wagging with many now speculating on her next political move, the Kirinyaga County boss noted that the initiative may not have been popular among Kenyans and that the president may have left behind the masses.
According to the governor, the Mt Kenya region was never behind the push for constitutional amendments through the BBI Bill.
“Looking at the reactions, and the polls done nationally, we seem to have left the people behind in the quest to pass BBI…I would be dishonest to say that the people of Mt Kenya were behind BBI. They were not,” Governor Waiguru said.
Since the declaration that the initiative was an illegality, the governor has been sending mixed signals and even accused the state agencies such as the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission of targeting her based on her recent remarks.
Waiguru recently set the record straight that Raila Odinga who is perceived to be a possible choice of President Uhuru Kenyatta has not been settled on.
In yet another statement issued today, the fiery governor outlined the conditions that any aspirant eyeing votes from the mount Kenya region must meet.
Among the conditions she listed was that the aspirants must outline their plan in regards to coffee and tea, uncompleted projects in the region and which jobs and Cabinet positions they intend to allocate Mount Kenya.
“It is important that we negotiate for the people of Mount Kenya. Whoever we are going to support for the presidential seat, we want to know where our people will get jobs, which jobs they will be? Which seats will get in Cabinet? We want to know all the benefits.
“Coffee, tea, what will happen to our markets? The roads that are being done and have not been completed, where is the signature so that we agree on how our people will be served? That is the only interest we have,” she said.
