Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has lashed out at human rights activist Boniface Mwangi over sleepover remarks.
On Tuesday, May 18, Mwangi took it to his Twitter account stating that the people of Kirinyaga County elected Waiguru hoping to directly benefit from statehouse owing to the fact that she is close to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In his statement, he posed a question to residents of Kirinyaga asking if their governor had brought them any developments.
“The people of Kirinyaga who voted for someone because they assumed the president will becoming for sleepovers, how are you this morning? Has a single sleepover happened? Has that brought development to Kirinyaga County? I hope you vote wisely in 2022,” he tweeted.
In a quick rejoinder, Waiguru who was irked by the statement slammed Mwangi noting that through her leadership the county has completed multiple developments.
She further mentioned just but a few developments completed which are; Kirinyaga maternity, Baricho Male ward, creation of 11 new markets among others.
“I usually don’t respond to non sensical posts. @bonifacemwangi don’t try to use me to get your next tranche of funding! DO NOT insult the people of Kirinyaga. They voted for development that they can now see. So WACHA USHENZI Respect us and our families!” she tweeted.
The activist was not yet ready to quit, after quickly replying to Waiguru calling her a thief.
“Anne Waiguru I will call you a thief for free, today and everyday.”
