Saturday June 27, 2020 – Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has issued three promises after the Senate cleared her of two charges – gross violation of the constitution and other laws, and abuse of office – following her impeachment on 9th of July.
In a press statement today, Waiguru said that she had forgiven the MCAs who orchestrated the plot to impeach her.
“It is profoundly clear that this impeachment process did not meet the required threshold and that it was all a choreographed plan of events that was aimed at tarnishing my name.”
“But as I said before, I forgive the forces behind it.”
“The report’s findings did indeed reveal areas of improvement in administration by officers and need for better checks and balances,” she stated.
Waiguru further called upon the MCAs to ensure that services are delivered to Kirinyaga residents.
She assured Kirinyaga residents that relevant issues affecting them will not go unaddressed and that the necessary changes and improvements will be made to both human resource and systems with the aim of improving service delivery to the people of Kirinyaga.
“That said, I call upon the County Assembly to own up to their failures and play their part in ensuring that we move Kirinyaga forward.”
“Rather than prioritizing funds to projects such as the building of MCAs offices, they should prioritize the allocation of funds for Covid-19 management and healthcare projects as proposed by the executive,” she stated.
Waiguru further said that she is ready to have a sit-down with MCAs so as to find solutions to the issues bedeviling the County.
“We have much to do and little time to achieve it.”
“My Government remains ready and willing to work with like-minded individuals committed to the service of Kirinyaga residents,” she rallied.
