Waiguru headed to UDA
After several months of guessing which vehicle Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru will use to defend her seat come the general elections it has now emerged UDA it is .
This afternoon while commissioning various development projects at Thiba Ward ,Mwea ,Waiguru was asked by the Kirinyaga Assembly Majority Leader Kamau Murango to make public o which political party she will be defending her seat on due to the growing public anxiety .
The gathering outside the Thiba Anglican church shouted back at Murango that the ticket they want Waiguru to run on was nothing short of UDA .
“Ati mnataka nipiganie kiti changu kwa tikikiti gani wakati wa uchanguzi ujao ?” she posed to which the highly charged crowd responded UDA.
It was at that juncture that Waiguru bowed to the public pressure and assured the gathering since they were her bosses, she would go by their terms.
The huge gathering at Thiba village , Mwea which demanded that Waiguru should decamp from Jubilee and join the now euphoric UDA if she wishes to be re-elected next year
“Nikiingia UDA mtanirudisha kitini ?‘’, (if i joined UDA will you re-elect me as your governor ?’’ she posed to which the answer was in the affirmative.
A while ago Waiguru has been publicly saying she will join the party the local residents wanted her to join and defend her seat on .
While hosting the Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka at her Kagio town residence last week ,Waiguru said she was still consulting widely with her voters on which way to go .
“Once my people tell me which party they wanted to be to join as a vehicle to defend my seat on , then I will have to obey and respect their decision since they are my bosses ,”she told Musyoka during the visit .
Murango on his part told Waiguru that there was increasing anxiety amongst the voters since she was yet to declare which party she was joining.
“In order to end this anxiety am appealing to you to declare before this gathering if you are ready and willing to join UDA which the majority of pour people subscribes to ,”Murango said to which Waiguru responded that she was ready to abide by their (voters)terms .
Already the local Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici has entrenched herself in UDA and has also declared her intent to dethrone Waiguru, come the general elections .
The party associated with the DP William Ruto has gained popularity in My Kenya region such that anyone wishing yo vie for elective position must join it.
“UDA has created an euphoria that can only be equated with the DP in Mt Kenya region when Mwai Kibaki was its Leader ,” said Antonio Kariuki, a local political commentator .
As the matter stands now , UDA has become the most popular party hence the new development in the Kirinyaga politics which has seen Waiguru declare her intent to decamp from the Jubilee as demanded by the people .
