23 November 2015, 11:38 Joseph Njung'eh

Kirinyaga - Residents of Gichugu Constituency where Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning, Anne Waiguru comes from have hailed her decision to resign from the powerful government docket.

Led by area MP Njogu Barua, they however said it was a hard decision to make.

They said Waiguru’s replacement should be a person from the area and they will take nothing short of that.

Barua however cautioned that the resignation should not be seen as a sign of cowardice but that of a true patriot and a respectable family person.

“Waiguru is our own and the decision she has made is welcome by us all but it should be noted that the vacant position should be filled by a person from our constituency,” Barua said.

He lamented that former National Intelligence Service (NIS) boss, Michael Gichangi who was also from Gichugu resigned and his place was taken over by someone from outside Kirinyaga County.

“We will not accept to be short changed. When the Inspector General, David Kimaiyo resigned he was replaced by a home boy Joseph Boinnet after leaders from the area insisted the position was theirs for regional balancing purposes,’’ Barua observed.

He said upon Gichangi’s exit from the high profile NIS slot in the Jubilee administration, Kirinyaga residents expected his replacement to be a person from Gichugu, his home tuff or the County only for his successor Philip Kameru to be appointed from Nyeri.

Speaking at Kithage primary school over the weekend, Barua expressed concern that Waiguru had been fought from her first day in office.

He asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to give Waiguru an alternative job stating that she has a young family to look after besides holding impeccable credentials.
