Handbags fight! Anerlisa Muigai defends mum in row with Susan Kihika, Millicent Omanga

Businesswoman Anerlisa Muigai has stepped into the political arena to defend her mother, Nakuru Senator Tabitha Karanja, who recently called for the impeachment of Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika.

The Senator’s proposal has sparked a heated debate, with fellow politician Millicent Omanga accusing her of hypocrisy.

Reacting to Senator Keroche’s call for impeachment, Millicent Omanga expressed her disagreement, stating:

“Sen Tabitha Keroche’s call for the impeachment of @susankihika is unfortunate and smacks of hypocrisy. It can’t be gainsaid that the people of Nakuru are in need of services. Governor should be supported to deliver on her mandate without unnecessary diversions and political witch-hunt.”

In response, Anerlisa Muigai, daughter of Senator Karanja, came to her mother’s defense.

She cautioned those criticising her mother and emphasised that her parents ‘works for the people of Nakuru, not for any individual or political agenda’.

“Millicent Omanga, don’t try mum. When she is given a job, she does her best. She was given a job by the Nakuru County residents, and she will do it to her best,” said Anerlisa Muigai.

Senator Tabitha Karanja, also the deputy Majority leader of the Senate, justified her call for Governor Kihika’s impeachment by expressing concerns about the mismanagement of the health sector, particularly regarding the takeover of War Memorial Hospital.

She accused the governor of being ‘incompetent and inhumane,’ alleging that these actions led to the loss of lives in the hospital and were in contempt of a court order.

“As the Senator of Nakuru County and the deputy Majority leader of the Senate, I strongly condemn the attack on the hospital by the county. This shows we have a governor who is so inhumane and never follows the rule of law and never respects the court,” Senator Karanja asserted during a media briefing on Wednesday, January 24.
