Anne Waiguru need no introduction in this forum having in the recent past been a subject of political opprobrium in the murky politics of Mr. TNA and Mrs. URP.
You see, the ruling couple have come under increasing scrutiny with Mrs URP claiming that the husband Mr. TNA is only taking care of his brothers and sisters from Mt. Kenya and that the in-laws in Rift Valley does not bother him.
A man got to take care of his in-laws. A good man got to take care of the wife’s relatives. That’s the social context of the Jubilee Alliance. Back to politics.
Anne Waiguru, known in some quarters as the President’ Uhuru’s … is finally said to have got herself a man ahead of a potentially charged parliamentary session in which she will be the subject of malevolence.
May be in a bid to stem ‘matters arising’ from her not being known to have a man in her other endeavours (sources told this writer she is divorced) Waiguru over the weekend cast her net wide within the government and is said to have finally landed on advocate Kamotho Waiganjo.
Whether bringing Waiganjo on the [conjugal] board will reduce the chagrin of male MPs is a matter of conjecture, however, her unilateral decision to pair up with Waiganjo may well be the end of her massive support among women folk, many of whom are themselves divorcees or, like Advocate Faith Waigwa, 33, claims to have been created ‘not to get married’.
