A number of Limuru residents have expressed their excitement after former Member of Parliament John Kiragu joined Deputy President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance Party and promised to popularize the DP's presidential bid across Limuru Constituency and Kiambu County at large.
Speaking with the Star, the residents led by John Macharia and Dancer Jay said that Kiragu who led them in 2013 to 2017 as an MP under President Uhuru Kenyatta's TNA party was a leader who had the interests of his constituents at heart.
Macharia said that the former lawmaker had listened to what the ground is saying, stating that the people are aligning themselves with Ruto.
"It is not too late for the former MP to join UDA. It is good he has listened to what the ground is saying because the residents' hearts are with Ruto. We shall therefore hit the ground running and support his bid," he said.
According to Jay, the residents enjoyed scholarships and support more so in education when Kiragu was their MP, and that joining hands with Ruto who has shown he is committed to uplift the ordinary Kenyan is a good move ahead of the August elections.
