• The chairperson of the council of governors divulged the scary information to a crowd that included the president.
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru stunned a crowd at the Sagana State Lodge when she narrated a near-death experience that she had gone through.
The well-known politician explained that it had happened on a flight back to Kenya from the United States when the pilot informed them about encountering unexpected turbulence mid-air.
"The pilot then asked the cabin crew to take their seats. It felt like the plane hit something and I shouted to Jesus to send his angels to take us home safely," she started.
Although she never went into any specifics about time, date, or the nature of her trip, Waiguru revealed that the turbulence kept on increasing, causing her to fear for her safety.
That was when she put on her prayer boots and started praying in earnest for safe passage home.
"A lady who was seated next to me intervened and stated that Jesus should come himself. I then knew that I was not the only person who was scared," she went on.
But thank God that situation got better and their plane was able to land successfully, something that Waiguru spoke about with her new-found friend.
"I got to ask the lady why she cancelled my prayer for the angels to be sent and she explained that the angels would have been sent to take us somewhere else (heaven)," she said.
The governor noted that the experience had left her with a phobia for flying.
According to www.weather.gov; Turbulence is one of the most unpredictable of all the weather phenomena that are of significance to pilots. Turbulence is an irregular motion of the air resulting from eddies and vertical currents. It may be as insignificant as a few annoying bumps or severe enough to momentarily throw an airplane out of control or to cause structural damage. Turbulence is associated with fronts, wind shear, thunderstorms, etc.
