Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Thursday, June 10 faced a security scare in Mwea constituency after an angry woman confronted her over the alleged unfair distribution of resources within the county.
Waiguru had gone to sign a deal between the county government and Kenya Animal Genetic Resource Centre (KAGRC), in order to provide Artificial Insemination(AI) services to farmers.
In a video that has since gone viral, her bodyguards intervened in the nick of time and managed to restrain the angry resident.
The woman, seemingly unafraid, lashed out at the security guards daring them to attack her.
Minutes later, after the bodyguards managed to contain the situation, the governor stepped out of the car and approached the crowd which had gathered in order to address various issues.
“Let us help each other, so draft down the issue of funds allocated to wards in the county,” Waiguru stated as the woman pointed out her key grievances.
Another issue raised involved the unfair distribution of resources during the recent disbursement of funds at Kangai Secondary School.
