Kirinyaga Woman Representative Purity Wangui Ngirici has yet again lashed out at Governor Anne Waiguru, describing her as unfit to hold public office.

Ngirici claimed that the Kirinyaga governor had been stealing from public coffers.

The lawmaker claimed that the county boss had been fighting Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho because the powerful civil servant stopped her from allegedly grabbing a piece of land reserved for construction of a Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri) facility.

She alleged that Waiguru did not want the 100-acre piece of land given to Kemri for the Ksh15 billion health project.

“She wanted Kemri to be given just 30 acres so that she can take the rest of the land,” she claimed.

The Kirinyaga MP added that it took the intervention of Kibicho to ensure the whole piece of land went to the research institute.

“She is attacking Kibicho because he stopped the grabbing of public land.”

Although her claims could not be verified, the national government and the Kirinyaga administration have been embroiled in a protracted battle over the parcel of land in Mwea.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has several times asked the governor to surrender the title deed, but she refused, saying that certain conditions had to be met.

Eventually, the national government issued another title deed and nullified the documents that the county chief was holding.

Kemri is now building a Level-Five hospital, a medical institution, a health research centre, and a medical supplies factory.

Ngirici insisted that Waiguru decamped to Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA from President Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party to seek sympathy.

“Now that she has joined UDA, we know her character. That cannot change just because of political affiliation,” the Woman Rep stated.

Barely a week ago, the MP warned the governor against insulting Kibicho, telling her to take her politics of hatred to Murang’a, where she is married.
