Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho became a surprise inclusion to a meeting convened by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
The gathering was set in place days after the launch of the BBI report by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Waiguru remarked that the function was a development ceremony organised by her and Interior PS Karanja Kibicho.
It was reported that the gathering attended by the various political figures was to chart a way to have the report implemented.
The residents during the event were seen carrying placards pledging their support for the initiative.
The Kirinyaga County boss, however, disregarded the claims that the purpose of the assembly was the findings of the handshake project.
She affirmed that the leaders from the national government led by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, were in the area to inspect the development projects embarked by the administration.
In addition, Joho’s gesture was insinuated to be a repayment for Waiguru when she backed ODM’s Kibra candidate Imran Okoth during the concluded by-elections.
The ODM deputy leader stated that he came to offer advice to the people of Kirinyaga.
He uttered that he was speculative when deciding to visit the region.
Joho ridiculed leaders that offered empty promises to Kenyans every year.
On the BBI topic, he urged the residents not to listen to the leaders but make decisions based on their own judgement.
The female leader during the contest rallied behind Raila despite Jubilee party fielding a candidate in the race.
According to the Central politician, her support for the ruling party’s rival was in regards to the deal between Uhuru and Raila.
“We must say in plain truth that the country is peaceful because of the handshake. We will protect it,” expressed Waiguru.
The Mt Kenya leader declared that Deputy President William Ruto was out of order to go against the deal by the two leaders.
“The others who claim they want to bring developments are just baiting you. They are a one-man guitar, unlike Imran who is the fruit of handshake, “noted the Kirinyaga Governor.
During the build-up to the elections, she urged the Kikuyu community to support the now Kibra MP.
“We know our votes are 22,000 in number. Kikuyus, I urge you to vote for the handshake,” stated the Jubilee party leader.
Waiguru commented that, “We are not afraid … We are not shaken by cheap politics.”
Before the release of the BBI report, the governor urged Kenyans to support it as it would be the basis of the government formed in 2022.
