Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru has poured praises on her husband Kamotho Waiganjo, who was part of a legal team that successfully defended her of impeachment charges.
The Senate Committee tasked to hear Waiguru’s impeachment case acquitted her on Friday after Kirinyaga County Assembly failed to substantiate the two charges leveled against her.
Waiguru described the committee’s verdict as a historic victory for her and the people of Kirinyaga County even as she insisted that her ouster was politically instigated.
“The conclusion of my impeachment process today marks a remarkable and historic victory not only for me but for the people of Kirinyaga County.”
“It is profoundly clear that this impeachment process did not meet the required threshold and that it was all a choreographed plan of events that was aimed at tarnishing my name, but as I said before, I forgive the forces behind it,” Waiguru said in a statement.
She further hailed her legal team led by her husband Kamotho whom she described as heaven-sent.
“I am grateful to my able team of lawyers who tirelessly perused volumes of evidence in rebuttal to the allegations raised against me and ably proved that none of them was in any way true.”
“Special thanks to my Husband who has been amazingly supportive throughout this process. A friend of mine recently said that there are husbands from heaven and then there are husbands who come walking. You are definitely one from heaven,” she added.
She assured the people of Kirinyaga that the botched impeachment will not affect her commitment to serve them.
“To the people of Kirinyaga, I would like to assure you that this long drawn politically instigated process has in no way affected my commitment to serve you. On the contrary, I am more resolved to ensure that you get the service you deserve.”
“It is unfortunate that the political innuendos have robbed you of your right to receive service from your leaders but I assure you that I will do my best to ensure that the Kirinyaga Rising vision is achieved.”
