Nyeri deputy governor Wanjiru Karugu has asked MCAs in the devolved unit to travel to Kiambu county and meet MCAs in the region for benchmarking exercise and learn how graft ridden and incompetent gubernatorial bosses are impeached.
Wanjiru made the remarks when she addressed a gathering after the swearing in ceremony of third governor of Kiambu, James Nyoro. However, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, has blasted the deputy governor saying that she is inciting Nyeri county MCAs against governor Mutahi Kahiga.
“Nyeri county gubernatorial boss and the area MCAs have forged genuine unity of purpose for the sake of development in the devolved unit in which case, the deputy governor’s statement ought to be treated with deserving contempt since she is an inciter and an alarmist of the highest order,” said Gachagua.
However, inside impeccable sources have revealed that Governor Kahiga and his deputy, for almost two years now, have not been reading from the same script over numerous outstanding issues concerning the running of the county government.
Other reliable inside sources have revealed that Governor Kahiga has compromised MCAs in the county assembly of Nyeri by asking them to square lucrative deals with suppliers and contractors in which they earn huge amount of money in form of commissions. The arrangement was said to have been brokered by the governor and the majority leader James Kanyugo.
The duo is known to be close even when they served Nyeri Knut branch with the former being the executive secretary and the latter as the treasurer, a long period before they plunged into active politics in the last elections cycle.
