Waiguru Faults Police over Laxity to Take Action

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has expressed concerns over the laxity by the police to take action against politicians engaging in hate and vulgar speech targeting her person.

She wondered if there was a separate law that favours such leaders from the one applied to the rest of the area residents.

“Am concerned that some leaders from outside this county come here to address public rallies where they use backward and insulting language against me as though I have become their punching bag,” she said.

Speaking at the Kiamutugu boy’s high school grounds during the Jamhuri day celebrations, an agitated Waiguru wondered why the area County Commissioner Jim Njoka and his security team were not taking any action.

“Am wondering why no action has ever been taken against these people whose preoccupation is to hold public rallies where their main agenda is to abuse me for my stand on the BBI,” she posed.

Waiguru said when the BBI issue came about, she was among those who supported it as her Mt Kenya colleagues went to the opposite direction which raised political temperature a notch higher.

“But now that the BBI has been brought to us and found to be the best model of leadership, they are now in its full support and have nothing else to do other than to hurl these insults,” she said.

On his part, Kirinyaga County Commissioner Jim Njoka said hooliganism would not be allowed, especially interruptions of public meetings as police would move into action and arrest those found perpetrating violence.

“I specifically want to address our boda boda operators who are being used and hired to cause chaos in other leaders meetings. We will arrest and prosecute you accordingly,” Njoka said.
