Kirinyaga MCAs reach agreement with Governor Waiguru


Kirinyaga Members of County Assembly (MCAs) have agreed to work with Governor Anne Waiguru after reaching a consensus on the 2020/2021 County Budget.

In a statement issued , Governor Waiguru thanked the Mt. Kenya Foundation leaders led by Peter Munga for steering the mediation talks with the MCAs.

“I am happy about the outcome of the negotiations that have been going on between the County Government Executive and the County Assembly to build consensus on 2020/2021 Budget. I would like to thank the Mt. Kenya Foundation chaired by Dr. Peter Munga for steering the mediation talks and their dedication and commitment in seeing that the matter was settled,” said Waiguru.

Governor Waiguru had been accusing the county assembly of arm twisting the Executive while trying to settle political scores after the defiant 25 out of 35 MCAs voted to reject her memorandum on the budget.

The agreement will also see the County Government pay 72 health workers who were reinstated after they had been sent home for engaging in a strike.

In June, Waiguru survived an impeachment after the Senate dismissed the abuse of office and gross misconduct charges against her.
