Threat to Governor Waiguru

Kirinyaga County is currently under Governor Anne Mumbi who was formerly Devolution Cabinet Secretary.

Kibicho clarified that his keen interest on development projects in the region should not be misunderstood as a challenge to Govenor Anne's administration.

"I meet leaders every month because, as a person who comes from this area, I would like to see residents well served and their standards of living uplifted. This is not politicking at all.

"Scores of residents camp at my rural home seeking assistance yet we have elected Members of Parliament and other leaders who are supposed to initiate development projects which can benefit them," he stated.
