The Kirinyaga governer seat was a close call between Ngirici and Waiguru. Martha Karua wrote, "Congratulations Wangui Ngirici, your win is of great significance.

Martha Karua was one of the candidates who died against Waiguru in 2017. Waiguru however emerged on top in the contested elections. Karua went ahead to contest the election in the Kenyan courts to no avail. She would later run to the East Africa court of justice but still things didn't go her way.

Wangui Ngirici was running on an independent party ticket after quitting UDA. She was one of the first to join UDA and only bolted out when Waiguru joined.She ahs served as the woman representative since 2017. She is one of the few, so far who has overcome the UDA wave to win. Congratulations!
