Kirinyaga elders request for political ceasefire between MCAs and Waiguru

Elders from Kirinyaga county have requested for a political ceasefire between ward representatives and governor Waiguru. They instead asked the two groups to focus o developing the region.

The group led by former councilor Jeremiah Gateri and Kirinyaga Jubilee Chairman Mureithi Kang’ ara, the elders, complained that the mayhem between the MCAs and Mrs. Waiguru would affect the county significantly.

“The political standoff has led to a slower implementation of development projects meant to benefit the people of Kirinyaga; hence, the leaders should make amends,” stated Mr. Kang’ ara.

Arbitration

While speaking Sagana town on Sunday evening, the elders said they would offer arbitration. Since the beginning of the disagreements, development in the region has stalled.

“We are ready to have a meeting with the ward reps and the governor for reconciliation purposes. For the sake of Kirinyaga residents, they should stop fighting,” stated Kang’ ara further.

The elders requested the ward reps to accept the decision of the Senate, which acquitted governor Waiguru of any wrongdoings.

Concede defeat and work on developing Kirinyaga

“Instead of moving to court to challenge Senate’s decision, MCAs should focus on developing our region,” said Mr. Gateri.

Currently, the MCAs continue insisting that the war between them and Kirinyaga county boss is far from over.

They pledged to move to the High Court and challenge the decision made by the Senate, which made Waiguru safeguard her position.

The MCAs complained bitterly about the decision and said they would seek help somewhere else.

Through their lawyer Ndegwa Njiru, the MCAs stated they had extensive evidence in their possession, proving that Waiguru undermined the authority of Kirinyaga County Assembly and abused her office, however, the Senate didn’t take any cause of action.
