“Is PS Kibicho now superior to the president? What is his personal interest in the matter? If PS Karanja Kibicho wants to engage in village politics and insults he can resign and join others in early campaigning. In the meantime, can he concentrate on the difficult task of ensuring internal security including in the turbulent parts of the country,” posted Waiguru.

Two President Uhuru Kenyatta’s confidants are engaged in a supremacy battle over development projects in their County.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Interior Permanent Secretary PS Karanja Kibicho publicly displayed their difference with Kibicho questioning why Waiguru was blocking some projects in the area.

The Kirinyaga County Government was to surrender a certain piece of land owned by KEMRI for construction of level five hospital, university, a medical supplies factory and a medical research center at Wamumu area in Mwea, at the value of sh 15 billion.

But taking to her Facebook social wall, Waiguru sharply answered back Kibicho accusing him of meddling in local politics instead of concentrating on his job description at the national level including ensuring security of Kenyans was guaranteed.

“Is PS Kibicho now superior to the president? What is his personal interest in the matter? If PS Karanja Kibicho wants to engage in village politics and insults he can resign and join others in early campaigning. In the meantime, can he concentrate on the difficult task of ensuring internal security including in the turbulent parts of the country,” posted Waiguru.

Waiguru told her supporters there was nothing worrying as Kibicho wants to insinuate and that the head of state was well aware that all the outstanding matters were being addressed.

“On KEMRI, H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta required an MOU to be signed so that the interests of Kirinyaga people, who I was elected to represent, are taken into account,” wrote Waiguru.

She asked Kibicho to maintain his lane and leave Kirinyaga County to the elected leadership to carry on with any development plans.

Waiguru wants any development done in the area to benefit locals, what she wants to ensure it is done through a written agreement MOU.

“On our part as the county, we have signed the KEMRI MoU and forwarded it to them for their execution. We remain committed to looking out for the interests of Kirinyaga people. Am sure asking 30% of manual and non-technical jobs for Kirinyaga residents is not too much to ask. It’s been done elsewhere, why not Kirinyaga?” Waiguru posed.

K24 had earlier reported that Mr. Kibicho on Friday Feb 14th held a meeting in the area but none of the county government officials was allowed to attend.
