Waiguru Celebrates Punguza Mizigo Flop With Savage Attack on Aukot [VIDEO]

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru, on Thursday, October 17, celebrated the failure of Punguza Mizigo campaign with a scathing attack on its founder and former presidential aspirant, Ekuru Aukot.

The county boss has had a long-running feud with Aukot stemming from the introduction of the campaign that officially ended on Wednesday, October 16.

Addressing journalists at her office grounds in Kirinyaga, Waiguru disclosed that the real reason the bill flopped was that the Third Way Alliance party leader was a lone ranger.

She further explained that he did not put Kenyans’ needs into consideration when coming up with his suggestions that were set to butcher a majority of elected and nominated posts in government.

 “Aukot is an arrogant lone ranger, who refused to read the mood of Kenyans. He was too arrogant to listen to other people’s views,” she stated.

On Wednesday, September 11, the two leaders engaged in a public spat on social media after she termed the bill as an unfortunate embarrassment.

“Fortunately for Kenya, we run on the basis of law, not on Aukot directives. The Bill was thrown out on the basis of the Law and Standing Orders of the Kirinyaga County Assembly. Period. Even on its merits, this Bill is, in any event, an unfortunate embarrassment,” posted Waiguru.

Aukot later retaliated calling the governor a public thief after millions of shillings disappeared from the Ministry of Devolution while she was the cabinet secretary.

“A public thief cannot tell Kenyans about integrity. Even the recent audited reports from the Office of the Auditor-General speak for themselves.

“FYI the biggest heist you orchestrated is now a world case study. It killed the dreams of many young Kenyans. You can’t fool people all the time,” stated Aukot.

Among the 31 counties that shot down the bill include Kirinyaga, Kajiado, Nyandarua, Kilifi, Trans-Nzoia and Garissa among others.

Governor Anne Waiguru claimed that Ekuru Aukot was arrogant, a trait that must have let to the punguza mizigo campaign flop.
