I'm not a coward, wait for 2022 - Waiguru

Only a matter of time

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Thursday hit out at critics of her administration asking them to give her the time to execute her manifesto.

A clearly displeased Waiguru insisted that the attacks on her were bait to engage in politics, which she would not take.

"I'm not a coward and those attacking me should wait for 2022 campaigns.

"This is time to deliver services to the residents but not for politicking," Waiguru said during a visit to the Pondago Dairy Cooperative Society in Ndia Constituency.

Bitter Fights with MCAs

Governor Waiguru has been at loggerheads with her Members of County Assembly (MCAs) over budgetary allocations.

She clarified that the budget cuts meted on their travel allocation were necessary and cuts had also been implemented in other departments as well.

"We have cut budgets in very many areas. Even cash for constructing my official residence has been slashed and I'm not complaining.

"Those criticizing my government should know that the bursary is not for the rich. What we have set aside as bursary is sufficient to benefit deserving cases," she stated.
