Here below is a one on one conversation between former devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru and top Mt Kenya mafia agent and statehouse operative ‘Olivia Pope’ that got her to resign.
President Uhuru had appeared powerless in handling the Waiguru issue untill mt Kenya mafia who are keen on Uhuru re-election moved to hire Olivia to handle the situation.
PS if you have no idea who the statehouse operative Olivia Pope is donâ€™t worry just think of her as a vessel.
Ann Waiguru is seated in Olivia Popeâ€™s office. Her eyes are wandering across the room. Olivia walks in sits down and looks at her with stern eyes.
OLIVIA :What do you want?
WAIGURU: Excuse me?
OLIVIA; Its a question I ask all my clients or people am negotiating with. I already know the answer but I like
to hear them say it. What do you want?
WAIGURU: I want to keep my job
OLIVIA: Thats not possible. Make another choice.
WAIGURU: (Determinedly) I want to keep my job.
OLIVIA: (In sharp tone) What is wrong with you? There is no way you are going to keep your job.There is no scenario available in which that is possible. Your little rugby tweet made sure of that. You will resign or you will be fired its inevitable. Half of the country thinks you are the Presidents mistress the other does not know what to think. The presidentâ€™s opponents are using you to hit at him everyday and hurt his chances of re-election. The only reason he has not fired you is because he does not want to be seen to be taking orders from the opposition . He already set a precedent by suspending other ministers so you need to accept the fact that you will soon be jobless.
WAIGURU: Its not fair I am good at my job.
OLIVIA: (A look of dismay) No you are not. How could you be? You are smarter than this Ann. Condom Dispensers! A Piano! You cannot be good at your job and have these things happen to you. It does not matter whether procurement is not your job..you must know when these things happen. You must know because you are a leader because you are the bossâ€¦because its your ass on the line; because its your ministry and your people. You take responsibility. Thatâ€™s what leaders do..you have been taking the credit. You do not serve at Huduma Centres but you take the credit and the awardsâ€¦you did not dig a ditch in Kibera but you took the credit so do not sit here and tell me you are good at your job. One last time: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Olivia moves closer and looks her in the eyes.
OLIVIA: What do you want?
Fine I will tell you what you want. You want to be special you want to be different. You are enjoying the attention. You want to see if the president will defend you or if he will let you go. You are testing him, testing your relationship. I have news for you. You do not have a relationship and no one is going to stick by you. He is a president and a politician. He comes first.
He has a job to do and a country to run-you need to take responsibility.
Here is a letter of resignation.
Olivia hands her an envelop
OLIVIA: Take it home with you, read it. Sign it and end this. Donâ€™t make this thing longer than it needs to be. Remember you cannot keep your job. The people wonâ€™t let you keep your job not for 87,000 bob biros
and condom dispensers. A shell shocked Waiguru takes the envelops and leaves.
OLIVIA: Oh and Ann.
Waiguru turns around
OLIVIA: Stop poking the bear. No more tweets. I donâ€™t care if Harambee Stars win the world cup.
Waiguru leaves. Olivia takes out her cell phone and puts it to her ear.
OLIVIA: Its handled !
