Tension Mounts in Kirinyaga Ahead of Ruto's Sunday Visit, Waiguru Fires at Ngirici Over UDA Politics

The deputy president, William Ruto, is expected to make an empowerment visit on Sunday to Ngurubani town in Mwea constituency, Kirinyaga county. The second in command is expected to be hosted by the area governor Anne Waiguru.

However, some tension have begun to build in the area after Waiguru's team claimed that there are plans by the Ngirici team to disrupt the event. According to a statement issued by Waiguru supporters, a plan has been orchestrated to heckle Waiguru and stop her from speaking in Ngurubani.

The main aim of this plan is to show Ruto that Waiguru has lost touch with the ground and therefore Ngirici is the right person to spearhead UDA party affairs in Kirinyaga county.

Nevertheless, Waiguru supporters have vowed to give the governor the security that she requires. They have said that they will do what it takes to ensure that both Waiguru and Ruto are safe. This might lead to an ugly confrontation between Waiguru and Ngirici factions on Sunday. Click here to watch video.

In other news, Governor Waiguru has fired at Ngirici over UDA party politics. The governor has said that UDA party is not a personal property adding that the party belongs to the public and anybody is free to join.

"UDA sio Chama Cha mtu. It doesn't mean that just because you joined the party earlier than the others you own the party. My competitor should stop panicking and wait for the nominations. In fact, I'm inviting the rest of the gubernatorial aspirants to UDA party. We want everyone on board," said Waiguru. Click here to watch video.
