A team of liars has surrounded president Uhuru Kenyatta, leaving him without a clue on what was happening on the ground, Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru has claimed.
Waiguru accused the said liars of failing to inform the Head of State that the ground was no longer in his favour.
Speaking at Kianjege market, Kirinyaga West Sub-County where she distributed an assortment of farm equipment to various groups yesterday, the governor also dismissed as falsehood claims that his Deputy William Ruto had planned a coup to dislodge Uhuru from power.
“If in deed Ruto had planned to overthrow the Head of State during their first term of Jubilee administration, then how comes that he retained him only such claims to emerge when his administration has less than three months to go?” she posed.
If anything, Waiguru added it was actually his hand shake partner Raila Odinga who had planned to overthrow him after the disputed 2017 general elections which he (Odinga), rejected and sworn himself as the people’s president.
Waiguru asked Uhuru to retire honorably and let the Azimio brigade leader to face it off with Ruto.
Added Waiguru: “Kenyans are telling you to step aside and let the two heavy weights face each other until August 9 when Kenyans will decide whom to vote for the presidency.”
The former Devolution CS further asked Uhuru to have a handshake with Ruto as he did with Odinga if indeed he was for peace and tranquility of the country.
Waiguru accused Interior PS Karanja Kibicho of planning evil against her.
“Kibicho has vowed to ensure that I will not be in the gubernatorial race ballot come the general elections and I wonder what is cooking. He should leave Kirinyaga people alone and let them make their political decisions without any intimidation”.
Added Waiguru’’ The people have already decided their party of choice is UDA and you can stay with your Azimio which you have supported all through, I am UDA because that is what the ground (my people) told me.”
During the brief ceremony, Waiguru also distributed an assortment of books and other related learning material for the Kariti Ward ECD classes.
