Kirinyaga Woman Rep Purity Ngirici’s husband Andrew has warned Governor Anne Waiguru over the stand off between the executive and county assembly.

Speaking on July 30, 2020, he stated that differences would only be solved if she agrees to humble herself.

“The governor should stand down and realise that Kirinyaga has real men and stop despising MCAs,” he stated.

He criticised the governor for proposing outsiders to try and find a middle ground between the two sides.

“Kirinyaga has its own people who can find solutions to the matters affecting us. She should not invite the likes of Fatuma Gedi, Alice Wanga and Peter Munga to come talk to us. That was very disrespectful,” he slammed.

The billionaire also criticised President Uhuru Kenyatta, claiming that he was lucky he couldn’t run for another term in office because Kirinyaga voters would not have supported him.

“If President Kenyatta was running for another term, he would have had a difficult time because he only listens to three people. They are families that think Kirinyaga belongs to them,” Ngirici claimed.

Earlier in the day, politicians had convened a meeting to plan on how to visit Deputy President William Ruto.

The deputy president has been meeting delegations from various counties.

The Kirinyaga Woman Rep is a close ally of DP Ruto is said to be eyeing the governor’s post in the next election.

The couple have been critical of Waiguru and supported her ouster which was overturned by the Senate.

Andrew has promised to mobilise residents to protest in Kirinyaga County if Senators chose to conduct Waiguru’s hearing through a special committee.

The CJ who instead handed the goats to Kakamega law courts users’ committee chairman Sylvester Mambiri also sited Malala’s ongoing court case.

“If am not wrong, the senator has donated a gift to me but he has put me in trouble because I think he has a case in court, secondly under the Judiciary code of conduct I am not allowed to take a gift which is more than 20,000 shillings and this goats look like they are more than 30,000.” the CJ said

During the event, the CJ steered clear of the controversy over his advisory to President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve Parliament for failure to legislate on the two-thirds gender rule.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has suspended Kilifi North Member of Parliament Owen Baya days after he attended Deputy President William Ruto’s meeting.

The MP was accused of switched alliances and teaming up with DP William Ruto and the party had resolved to take action on the MP over what they called “recent political alignments.”

In a statement through the Party’s Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna, the party announced that the National Executive Committee (NEC) had also decided to suspend Baya from his position as the Deputy Organizing Secretary.

The party explained that the decision was made after his recent move which has cast doubt on his commitment to this party and its objectives.

“Cognizant of the central role that the party’s NEC plays in the management of the party and the need to maintain the probity of its deliberations the NEC resolved to suspend MP Owen Baya from membership of this critical organ and from his position as the Deputy Organizing Secretary given his recent public utterances and conduct that have cast doubt on his commitment to this party and its objectives,” read a statement from the party.

On Wednesday, Baya was part of a delegation of Coast MPs that escorted Feisal Abdallah Bader, an aspirant for the Msambweni parliamentary seat, to meet Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen office.

BY KEVIN KOECH

The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General Francis Atwoli has once again put Deputy President William Ruto on blast for using the ‘hustler’ tag.

Speaking during a press conference, the Atwoli stated that the tag hustler had a negative meaning which translates to someone who uses mischievous ways to get wealth.

He added that all Kenyans are yearning for is an organized system of government that could provide employment and not creating hustlers.

He pointed out that William Ruto was not poor as he makes his supporters believe and he is just using them to climb to the top. He disclosed that William Ruto owns choppers, mansions, and every space in the country.

Atwoli went on to call out the DP for the donations he has been giving out to the youths and women stating that they were just peanuts compared to the amount of wealth he has amassed over the years.

“The person telling you about being a hustler owns five choppers, a mansion and owns every empty space in the republic of Kenya. You are calling yourself a hustler and yet you are not. Even God cannot allow. Then you go to the church to cheat about being a hustler,” he said.

A few days ago, Atwoli blasted William Ruto for using the tag while asking Kenyans to reject him stating that no one should allow themselves to be called a hustler. He claimed that hustlers are thieves.

Atwoli who claimed that he would disown his children if they referred themselves as hustlers stated that people should go to school, get an education and get jobs in reputable companies instead of hustling.

“You then become a branch manager of Kenya Breweries, get a house allowance, a car loan, and have a nice house. You are not hustlers. We cannot have a nation of hustlers because it is a man eats man society,” Atwoli said.
