Interior Principal Secretary Karanja  Kibicho has named Kirinyaga politicians who had  allegedly organised the heckling of Martha Karua .

Kibiciho named   the Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and the area Assembly Majority Leader  Kamau Murango as those behind the  Tuesday  incident.

The  two were said to have  planned , organised and hired goons   to heckle the  Azimio DP nominee while on her home coming .

Speaking at Gatugura  market  in Gichugu constituency while on an inspection tour of government project in the area  this morning ,Kibicho said it was not only immoral for  such behavior but disrespectful to the  persona of Karua  who is a DP in the waiting.


Interior PS Karanja Kibicho  at Gatugura Chiefs camp, Kirinyaga East Sub- County where he accused governor Anne Waiguru and a local MCA Kamau Murango of masterminding the verbal assault on Azimio DP running  mate Martha Karua  on Tuesday this week  during her home  coming.

Kibicho said Karua having been nominated for the Azimio’s  presidential running was such a great honour not only to the people of Kirinyaga but to the entire country especially to the women  folk.

“Karua’s nomination as the  Azimio’s presidential running mate has not only uplifted the profile of the nominee as a person but the entire people of Kirinyaga and we should therefore learn to respect her ,”he said.

He urged leaders to stop the habit of  misusing the youths by paying them to shout  and  to cause chaos  during political functions like the Tuesday one where they kept hurling  insults at Karua and her  entourage .

Kibicho also asked the residents to consider the many development projects the Raila /Karua led government would be initiated in the area hence the need to ensure  they voted for this political outfit come August 9 general elections .

He said the August 9 contest will be between the Azimio’s Karua   and Rigathi Gachagu of   UDA  .

“The August  9 contest will be integrity versus thieves and I want to remind Kenyans of the mayhem Gachagua unleashed to the Molo residents during  the 1992 tribal clashes ,”he said.

During the  function , Azimio affiliated  candidates for various  positions who included Daniel Karaba ( senator ) Shujaa Rose Wachira ( Women Representative  and  Gichugu parliamentary contender Njogu Barua  solicited for votes from the gathering .
