Why Waiguru Swearing-in Ceremony will not take place on Monday

This is it

The ceremony which was supposed to take place on Monday was postponed to allow President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto attend it.

The two are the chief-guests at the ceremony.

Confirming this, area Jubilee Party vice chairman Mureithi Kangara divulged that the event will be held at Kirinyaga University grounds.


“The event will not take place on Monday as earlier planned. We are calling on residents to turn out in large numbers at the Kirinyaga university grounds in Kutus town on Tuesday." Kangara was quoted by the Star as saying.

Ms. Waiguru won the Kirinyaga Gubernatorial race beating her arch rival Martha Karua.

Before joining politics she worked as the Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary in the Jubilee administration led by Mr. Kenyatta.

She later stepped down after the infamous National Youth Service (NYS) scandal. According to evidence presented in this scam, it is alleged that billions of shillings were stolen under her watch.

However, Waiguru has consistently distanced herself from the multi billion scandal.
