'Minji Minji' Sworn In As DP Ruto Watches

Ann Waiguru taking her oath as the new Kirinyaga County Governor on Tuesday, 22 August.

After all the drama that surrounded her time as Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning, she made a decision that bore fruits. Anne Mumbi Waiguru was a woman under siege and even Deputy President, William Ruto was not left behind terming her as 'yule wa kizungu mingi'.


Fast forward and Ms. Anne Waiguru was on Tuesday sworn in as the new governor of Kirinyaga County. She is part of the first female governors under Kenya's new constitution.
The ceremony, held at the Kirinyaga University Grounds, was graced by one man who, several months ago could not see eye to eye with her.
It is true that politics offers no permanent friends or enemies. In this circle, your interests determine who your friend will be.
Deputy President, William Ruto arrived and the grounds and was received by Ms. Waiguru herself.


Amidst all the smiles, it was hard to tell if it is these two that exchanged bitter words during the NYS Scandal.


Ms. Waiguru was later sworn in and the 'Minji Minji' euphoria had come to its climax. She beat Martha Karua in a tight contest that some say was already decided during the campaigns. Ms. Waiguru's modern style of campaigning combined with meets and greets all over the county won over the hearts of the residents of Kirinyaga. They had installed one of their own to the throne. The Queen now holds the crown.
