In an interview on Citizen TV, Waiguru said that President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga have been very busy to release the report. The first time county boss also said that there is a need for time so that the two leaders can engage the general public before the report is released.  

Waiguru argued that President Kenyatta recently decided to meet leaders from the Mt Kenya region as a way of preparing them for the report.

"The BBI report must be released at the right time to give it ample time for engagement with the public," she said.

The governor divulged that she is not leaning on any side of the push for a referendum but she is ready to accept the will of the Kenyans. Waiguru also said that the referendum is not the only way out.

"I do not have a preference. I will follow whatever changes Kenyans will want to be made on the constitution, whether through a referendum or parliament," she said.

She also asked the leaders from both Jubilee and ODM to back the handshake, adding that she has no plans to change her tune. On the NYS scandal, she insisted that the accusations she faced were false and ill-motivated.

On the issue of Kibra, Waiguru said that she was there because of the handshake between President Kenyatta and Odinga.
