Wednesday June 17, 2020 – Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Mumbi Waiguru, is the proverbial cat that has nine lives going by what happened at the floor of the Senate on Tuesday.
The Governor, who was impeached by Kirinyaga County Assembly last week over gross misconduct and violation of the constitution, will face an 11 member Senate committee that will decide her fate.
On Tuesday, there was uproar at the Senate after 45 Senators voted for Waiguru to be heard by the select committee of the Senate instead by the whole committee of the Senate as it has been the norm.
Impeccable sources said the Governor splashed Sh 30 million to top Senate leadership to have her heard by a select committee instead of the whole house.
Shockingly, even opposition Senators led by Siaya Senator, James Orengo, and his counterpart, Mutula Kilonzo, were singing Waiguru’s tune because of the huge bribe.
“Yes, she bought tea for some influential Senators and that is why she is confident she will overcome this,” said a Senator who received part of the money.
