Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru on Wednesday ordered for a special audit into the county’s financial status. In her letter to the Auditor General, the governor asked that he specially focuses on the financial and human resource commitments entered into as from January, 2017.
The letter has been doing rounds online and has been heavily criticized by Netizens.
CCTV’s Saddique Shaban said that it was ironical that Ms Waiguru was asking for an audit of the county while she had been accused of theft.

Other critics said:
"Request For An Urgent Special Audit To Help Me Identify Opportunities For Stealing." She Said.
