Mt Kenya Jubilee Politicians Who Might Seek UDA Ticket In 2027 Election

Politics needs smart individuals who knows how to take advantage of situations or circumstances to be in a better position to win over the opponents.

In the recent concluded general election in the country, majority seats in Mt Kenya region were won by those who were sponsored by UDA party of president William Ruto and his deputy hon Rigathi Gachagua who is also popularly known as Riggy G.

UDA party was able to beat even Jubilee party of the former president Kenyatta who was also the kingpin in the Central region of Kenya. The main reason why UDA was able to win big us that the people of the region believed in him and also the handshake contributed hugely since the people of the mountain do not like the former prime minister.

Come 2027, there are a number of politicians from Jubilee party who lost to UDA candidates in the recent election who might shift to UDA and seek votes from hustler camp. This will be contributed by the fact that the people of the mountain might not want to vote for those who are against the current president but those who are with him.

Some of these politician who might shift include the following. First is one is Ngunjiri Wambugu who lost his seat for Nyeri township constituency seat. He is a popular politician and he lost the seat probably because of the party he was sponsored with.

Second one is Wangui Ngirici who was seeking the gubernatorial seat for Kirinyaga county. She too lost to UDA candidate Ann Waiguru who is serving for her last term which can give Ngirici direct win next election with UDA ticket.

The last but not least is hon Kanini Kega who is currently the member of East Africa Legislative Assembly. He has once declared that the current deputy president Gachagua is the best man to unite Mt Kenya region. This could be a sign of him shifting to UDA and earn some favor so that to win back his seat as MP come 2027. What is your thought and which other leader do you feel like he or she might move to UDA?
