Some low moments in life can keep you away from the things you love or interact with on a daily basis and you just turn to God for help.
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is going through a rough time in her political career, with her fate lying with the Senate.
But as the hearing of her impeachment motion was going on in the Senate in Nairobi today, 23rd June, one would have expected the governor to pay maximum attention.
Well, that was not entirely the case.
At one point, the county boss forgot her tribulations and turned to her phone for some fun to relax her mind.
Waiguru was captured playing Solitaire, a mind-boggling card game.
The card game can be played on a computer or a smartphone with a deck of standard playing cards.
She was spotted arranging the cards as the impeachment debate went on.
In her defence, the former Devolution Cabinet Secretary denied all the allegations levelled against her by the Kirinyaga MCAs.
Waiguru said that the county lawmakers had gone on a witch-hunt after she failed to give in to some of their demands.
She added that governors need protection from MCAs, whom, she claimed are always after kickbacks for every tender awarded by the counties.
“As a matter of fact, in the last month alone, two CECs, one CO and the County Secretary have been given a vote of no confidence by the assembly. Critical State officers, including CECs and members of the County Public Service Board, have not been approved by the assembly, making it difficult to employ staff even for critical health services. Services to the people of Kirinyaga are affected and will continue to be affected,” her statement read.
According to the governor, a high-profile politician, she did not name, is determined to soil her name for political reasons.
Kirinyaga MCAs accuse Waiguru of gross misconduct, corruption and micro-managing the county.
