All Eyes in Karen As Governor Waiguru is Set To Join His Favourite Presidential Aspirant

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has finally defected to Deputy President William Ruto's camp.

The Governor, who is seeking his second term in office, met with the Deputy President at his official Karen Residence while in the company of 23 Members of County Assemblies from his county.

This comes weeks after the Governor said he would declare her stand based on the wishes of her Kirinyaga people.

Governor Waiguru noted that politics are local and that is why she had opted to make a u-turn to save her political future which political pundits argue stood no chance if she continued to antagonize the Deputy President.

The Governor after the meeting posed for a picture together with the Deputy President.

Her entry into UDA now means that she will wrestle with the Kirinyaga County Woman Rep Purity Ngirici for the party's ticket.

Ngiric has been the most vocal and visible supporter of the Deputy President from the Mt Kenya region.

Waiguru's entry complicates the matrix given that she was deemed the runaway ticket winner for the UDA party even before the polls.
