VIDEO: Waiguru tells off those unhappy with her being married in Murang’a

Published

on

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Thursday, September 12, taunted her secret admirers by bragging about her husband Kamotho Waiganjo, claiming no Kirinyaga man approached her.

Speaking after the opening of Kagumo Market, where she was reportedly booed, she addressed remarks from people who faulted her for getting married to a man from Murang’a County.

“Those complaining that I got married in Murang’a, is there anyone from Kirinyaga who asked me out and I refused?” she asked to the applause of the crowd.

“Since no one from Kirinyaga asked me out, what was I to do? Honestly, are people from Murang’a bad? All the same, I’m still working for you, the people of Kirinyaga,” she assured the crowd.

During an interview with KTN’s Tony Gachoka in August 2019, the governor had stated that Kamotho was very instrumental in helping her wade through the allegations of corruption that had been levelled against her when she was the Devolution CS.

She was accused of overseeing massive theft of public funds at the National Youth (NYS).

Kamotho also swooped in to help the governor beat former Cabinet Minister Martha Karua at her own game.

Speaking about her husband’s role in the court case, the governor was thankful that Waiganjo was part of the team and therefore, the cost wasn’t too much to bear.

“Luckily for me, my legal team didn’t quite charge me too much, partly because my husband was also on the panel,” she explained.

Speaking at the award event, she pledged that she will carry on with her outstanding work, giving a voice to the voiceless through her unique coverage of sensitive topics such as sexual bondage of young girls in Kenya.

“Each time I tell a story, I try to ensure that every word that I write bears the hopes and dreams of those people in the villages, towns and slums who may never have the opportunity that I have to reach a bigger audience, ”stated Wangui.

A video of a jovial Kenyan student Norah Borus Chelagat, 24, who was found dead in her room on the campus of Stanford University on June 14, 2019 has been shared online.

In the video, recorded before her death, Norah says that she missed Kenya, the food and people noting that “there is a feeling you get while in Kenya.”

“Before Stanford, I had never gone out of Kenya. People are nice but I miss Kenya, the food, the people. There is a certain feeling you get while in Kenya’ like people are waiting for you. I want to get some experience here and use it when I go back to Kenya,” she said.

An autopsy report released last week revealed that Norah had committed suicide.

The report released by the Santa Clara Medical Examiner’s Office showed Norah died by suicide from poisoning.

The Kenyan student was found dead inside her room at Stanford University in June this year.

Norah, who was the best girl in Nairobi County in the 2013 KCSE exams, joined the California-based University in 2014 to study Computer Science.

She was laid to rest on June 29, 2019 at her father’s farm in Ray Farm, Moiben constituency.
