In the Kenyan political scene, no woman splits opinions as much as she does and finally Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru has been declared innocent of all the charges she was accused of by the County Assembly of Kirinyaga. After the representatives of the Kirinyaga people spent days presenting and defending their evidence before the Cleophas Malala led committee, it culminated in the governor being declared innocent of all charges. This has raised furore among a section of Kenyans who regard Waiguru as the poster girl for corruption in Kenya.
None of this was unexpected. Hours before the report by the committee, Kenyan netizens were cognizant of the fact that Waiguru would be cleared. And a few minutes before the report was tabled, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen released the report posting it on his social media pages. Caption, sanitized!
