Burying disappointments?

Matatu operators lead mock burial of Laikipia Woman Rep Catherine Waruguru (Twitter)

Nanyuki residents on Tuesday joined matatu operators in executing a mock funeral for Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru.

The disgruntled PSV operators accused the Woman Rep of sabotaging their business through allowing Probox and Sienta vehicles to ferry passengers.

The angry protesters claimed that she orchestrated a move by the smaller vehicles to bypass by laws that already hindered them from conducting the PSV business.


The bizarre protest caused a traffic snarl-up along the Nyeri-Nanyuki highway and motorists were forced to use alternative routes.

The protests only stopped after the authorities intervened and dispersed the crowds.

Vocal Woman Rep

The vocal Woman Rep was not immediately available for comment when got in touch with her.


Ms Waruguru made headlines recently when she and her husband were denied admission at a hotel in Kericho County.

She protested the decision threatening to move to court after the hotel maintained that they do not give rooms to couples who do not produce a marriage certificate.

The MP would later disclose that she is proudly married as a second wife through a traditional ceremony.
