Waiguru Reveals Why Ruto Must Defeat Raila In Mt. Kenya By 8AM

Governor Ann Waiguru has opened up on the popularity of William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) in Mt. Kenya region compared to that of ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Waiguru, the main reason why Ruto has managed to gain most support from Mt. Kenya is because his message resonates well with the common man.

At the same time, Waiguru said that the major challenge Mt. Kenya was going to face in the looming election a lack of a serious presidential election.

“The reason Ruto is very popular in Mt. Kenya is that he connects with the youth. They even say with emotion and passion, anatufeel.”

“I have not yet announced whether I am going to UDA or not. My view on the ground right now is that of UDA. Our biggest challenge in Mount Kenya is that we do not have a presidential candidate. All these candidates who have emerged, no one is following them.” 

With regards to the upcoming Mashujaa Day preparations in Kirinyaga county, the governor said that she has been sidelined from organizing it for reasons she does not understand.

“I have been sidelined from Mashujaa Day preparations. I have not had a say on who is going to be in the stadium, I have no say at all as the host. They said the County Commissioner is the one who is running the show so I absolutely have no say. Out of the 3,000 people that will be in there, they gave 150 cards for the Executive and Members of the County Assembly. And that makes me a bit uncomfortable.” ~ Gov. Anne Waiguru.

In the meantime, the fight for power between Kirinyaga county governor Anne Waiguru and the women representative Purity Ngirici have escalated ahead of the Mashujaa day.

According to reports, county government officials had been sent to pull down two bill board bearing Ngirici’s image in Mwea town and replace them with Waiguru’s.

The officials from an advertising agency arrived in the town last Sunday morning to execute the orders whereby they pulled the billboard bearing Ngirici’s portrait and tried to replace them with Waiguru’s but locals prevented them from doing so.

The standoff forced Ngirici’s husband Andrew Ngirici to intervene and ordered the workers to put back the bill board.

He said that their actions were wrong while insisting that he had a right to erect his billboards in the town.
