Interior Principal Secretary (PS) Karanja Kibicho has finally broken his silence over the accusations that were labelled against him by Kirinyaga County CEO Anne Waiguru.
The power wielding PS took to National radio to repudiate claims that he’s eyeing the Kirinyaga governor’s seat in the next General Election.
Speaking on Milele FM yesterday (Wednesday) morning, Dr. Kibicho, whom the beleaguered Governor Waiguru has been blaming for her political cudgeling, said that he is not interested in her seat.
“Today I am the PS for Interior and I have never stood anywhere and announced that I want to be elected as the governor of Kirinyaga and I have no interest,” the PS said.
The two Jubilee allied political heavyweights fell out when the Interior PS publicly castigated the governor for opposing the issuance of a title deed to pave way for the construction of the Sh15 billion Kenya Medical Research Centre (Kemri) facility in Kirinyaga.
Kibicho termed the governor’s opposition to the Kemri project “foolish”, asking her to stop holding the county into ransom.
Governor Waiguru has in the recent past insistently accused the PS as being the key figure behind the belligerent wind against her and her administration. She has also accused him of funding members of the Kirinyaga County Assembly to impeach her.
