On Tuesday, September 14, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru met with Woman Representative Purity Ngirici, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, and Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho in Kutus town, Kirinyaga County.
The unexpected gathering took place in anticipation of the county's Mashujaa Day celebrations.
The officials discussed, among other things, unity and development in the county, according to Kibicho.
He also mentioned that the leaders promised a healthy battle in the gubernatorial elections in 2022.
"We have drawn a wish list as the President will be coming here. All aspiring, former and sitting leaders are here and we vowed to uphold peace before and after Mashujaa Day," the PS stated.
Waiguru described the meeting as "very beneficial," adding that it was "refreshing" to participate in a debate about growth with fellow Kirinyaga leaders and the business community.
She emphasized that the meeting's major focus was on issues impacting Kirinyaga locals.
Ngirici, for one, emphasized the significance of leaders working together despite their differences.
“This meeting was about the development of Kirinyaga and also unity in the sense that all leaders have come together, something we should be doing even when we are not hosting the President,” Karua noted.
Kirinyaga Senator Charles Kibiru and Kerugoya Ward MCA James Kamau Murango were among the other leaders in attendance.
Waiguru is running for gubernatorial re-election in 2022, although Ngirici and Karua are also interested.
PS Kibicho has not declared his candidacy for any county seat, but he is rumored to be running in the same contest.
