On Monday, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru criticized Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for his political maneuvers, including rallying the Mt. Kenya region behind him and his stance on the one-man-one-vote-one-shilling debate.

In response, Githunguri Member of Parliament Gathoni Wamuchomba urged Waiguru to refrain from lecturing other leaders on who should discuss issues affecting the region.

She criticized her for serving as the chair of the council of governors yet allowing the region to face numerous challenges.

"Dear Governor Anne Waiguru, with much respect stop lecturing us on who should speak about what in Mt. Kenya Region. You are the Chair of Council of Governors sitting pretty as we struggle with the rising economic stress, closing businesses, alcoholism and neglect of projects by Kenya Kwanza regime which you are now defending online," Wamuchomba stated.

The Githunguri MP raised several questions to Waiguru, including pricing challenges faced by coffee farmers, the lack of milk processors, and incomplete road and dam projects.

Wamuchomba also delved into the controversial one-man-one-vote-one-shilling debate and urged the Kirinyaga governor to either join them or remain silent.

"Now that you are in USA with the presidential jet enjoy the ride quietly but ask those wazungu to give you money to complete our projects nasio loans. And by the way here at home we are speaking the language of One Man One Shilling while you are away. Prepare to either Join us or keep quiet,'' she told her.
