President Uhuru Kenyatta has for the first time publicly addressed widely spread rumours that he is in a ‘more than just colleagues’ relationship with Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru.
Speaking to Eldoret residents during a stopover in his tour of the North Rift region on Monday November 16, 2015, Uhuru apparently sent the crowd laughing saying that he has only one wife, Margaret Kenyatta, and people should not force another one on him, according to The Star.
The rumour mill has been rife with suggestions that Anne Waiguru is Uhuru’s girlfriend, especially after the president failed to suspend her following rampant corruption allegations, a treatment other Cabinet Secretaries faced by the same challenges did not receive.
In his defense, Uhuru reportedly said that if he receives well-founded evidence on corruption against “Waiguru or any other minister” he will not hesitate to take action against them, “regardless of whomever it is.”
On Sunday November 15, the day before this unexpected public declaration, the president met with North Rift leaders at a closed-door meeting where he called out outspoken MP from the region Alfred Keter for being hellbent on impeaching Waiguru.
A source present in the meeting held at Eldoret State Lodge apparently disclosed to Daily Nation that Uhuru called on Keter, who was conspicuously absent in the meeting, to “stop creating unnecessary disturbance” in his government.

Alfred Keter on his part, insisted on Monday that as a legislator, he took part in debating and approving cabinet secretaries’ appointment, including Waiguru.

Critics have continued to claim that the URP side of Jubilee government largely based in the North Rift region is increasingly dissatisfied, giving the suspension of cabinet secretaries as one of the reasons.
Some Ruto-allied cabinet secretaries have been suspended following alleged malpractice in their offices, while some in the TNA wing bedeviled by the same claims such as Anne Waiguru, are still in office.
The reported public declaration by Uhuru brings to mind the time former president Mwai Kibaki had to call an unusual press conference to declare that he has only one wife, Lucy Kibaki, following widespread rumours that current Othaya MP Mary Wambui was his second wife.
