Long-lost kin? Waiguru finally meets lookalike UoN student leader

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has finally met her lookalike, newly elected University of Nairobi student leader Ann Mvurya Mwangi.

Waiguru and Mvurya became an online sensation shortly after the latter was elected the first female president of the University of Nairobi Students Association.

At the time, Mvurya told Nairobi News that she would meet the governor and probe their ancestry to determine if they were related.

Fast forward to Thursday and the two met at the governor’s office and Governor Waiguru could not hide her excitement.

She posted on Twitter; “It is said that everybody has at least one person whom they strongly resemble: Had an intriguing meeting with newly elected UNSA chair, @MwangiMvurya. We share quite a bit in common including a shared passion for more women in political leadership.”

Mvurya, in a previous interview, said she admires Waiguru and would love to be mentored by the governor.

“Before my win, it was just a University of Nairobi affair but now the conversation has drawn in the position of women leaders in the society. A congratulatory message from her was unexpected and I would love her mentorship because I admire her strength and resilience,” she said.
