Governor Waiguru booed in Kirinyaga, police intervene – VIDEO
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was on Thursday booed by members of public during the official opening of the Kagumo market at Mutira Ward in Kirinyaga Central Constituency.
Trouble began after Waiguru opened the market constructed by the county government and declared that she would not allow area MCA David Kinyua Wangui or any other leader perceived to be against her to address the gathering.
The governor remained adamant that the official opening of the market was her function, insisting that she would not allow the Mutira Ward MCA to speak at the function, accusing him of insulting her in public.
Supporters of the MCA, however, turned rowdy forcing Waiguru to give in and allow the MCA to address the residents.
It was until she handed the microphone to Mr. Wangui that the locals calmed down.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Wangui said he fully supported Governor Waiguru’s development agenda despite their political differences.
The MCA, who is a supporter of the Tanga Tanga movement and a critic of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), denied that he was undermining the county boss or hurling insults at her.
After the address, Waiguru, who is a supporter of the BBI, was led away under tight police security.
