In an interview with Citizen TV’s Hussein Mohamed, the Governor said she lived in Runda and owns the house in the upmarket estate. “I lived in Runda before I joined government and I own a house there.

In her defense, Waiguru said she bought the house under a mortgage plan for CSs that would see her pay 3 per percent interest rate over a period of 20 years. “My house is not paid for and it did not cost Sh150 million, only the deposit has been paid,” Waiguru told Hussein in the interview.
