Meet Ndegwa Njiru, Kirinyaga County Assembly lawyer who stole the show at Waiguru’s hearing

As the embattled Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru fought to retain her seat, one lawyer stole Kenyans’ attention, Ndegwa Njiru.

Ndegwa was the lawyer representing the Kirinyaga County Assembly during the proceedings. What struck many is how the eloquent lawyer presented his facts fearlessly taking on the other lawyers and challenging them on matters he felt were suspicious.

Ndegwa questioned the witnesses available, making sure the committee understands whatever he was aiming at. On more than one occasion, he bombarded witnesses from the defense team with rather hard questions that sometimes left them dumbfounded.

What amazed Kenyans is how Ndegwa was keenly listening to the defense team and using their weaknesses to expose them. He proved that he was well versed in the law throughout the whole process.

Ndegwa steals the show.

On several occasions, the defense team lawyers, which consisted of highly-ranked individuals, including Waiguru’s husband Waiganjo, interrupted him in an elusive manner. He, however, pushed on aggressively to get to the bottom of the matter.

During the proceedings, a typo in the company names drew his attention, and as expected, he focused on it. In trying to uncover the truth, he questioned whether it was “Velocity” or “Velocty.”

While little was known of the lawyer before this case, he is now a household name. Ndegwa is an Highcourt advocate who has appeared on TV, severally commenting on political issues. Kenyans took to Twitter, celebrating him for his efforts to expose the rot in Waiguru’s tenure as governor.

Among them was Dennis Itumbi, who suggested that Ndegwa should vie for the 2022 Kirinyaga Senatorial seat.

Final Word….”How many times will one commit transgressions and go unpunished?”
Wakili Ndegwa Njiru. At least we got a Senator in Kirinyaga for 2022 – Wakili go for it!”

Here are some of the netizens’ reactions. You can follow the trend here.
