Kirinyaga County Deputy Governor, Peter Ndambiri says the governor has declined the request through Interior PS Karanja through. Kibicho Governor insisted that KEMRI must approach the county for any activity within. 

The Kirinyaga governor through his deputy ordered complete sabotage of the project is the institution that will not work with the county government.

" KEMRI is not willing to enter into an agreement with Governor Waiguru’s administration. That is why the title deed [of the Wamumu land in Mwea] hasn’t been handed over to it,” Ndambiri said while addressing Kirinyaga residents at Riandira Primary School during the 2019 Mashujaa Day celebrations.

“We want to know how our residents will benefit from the project. KEMRI must sign an agreement with us if it wants to be given the land document.” the Kirinyaga governor Ann Waiguru said.

KEMRI said it wanted to build a Level Five hospital, university, a medical supplies factory and a medical research center at Wamumu area in Mwea, all valued at Ksh15 billion.

In late October 2019, KEMRI through its lawyer, Wilfred Lusi, had gone to court seeking to have a September 2019 order stopping it from engaging in construction work on the land lifted.

" The governor’s decision to sabotage the project is sheer stupidity that should not be allowed to continue,” Kibicho said Friday while monitoring the progress of development projects in Mwea.

"  I am shocked that your governor is opposed to the KEMRI project, which will go a long way in boosting the economy of Kirinyaga County. It is stupid and foolish of one to oppose such a viable project that, upon completion, will be very important to the people of the county that she leads,” said Interior PS Karanja Kibicho.
