Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru joins DP Ruto's UDA camp

Kirinyaga governor has officially ditched Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee and joined the Hastla movement, UDA.

Waiguru who recently hinted that she will first hear what her people say before declaring the party she defend her seat on has finally declared her new party. She is currently at DP Ruto's Karen home where they are in a closed door meeting before being unveiled as a UDA member later today.

Anne Waiguru won the Kirinyaga gubernatorial race in 2017 on a Jubilee ticket, trouncing Narc Kenya's Martha Karua. Martha Karua has already announced her intentions to run for the Kirinyaga governor's seat in 2022.

The race is set to be tight with UDA's Waiguru set to face off with Narc Kenya's Martha Karua and head of public service Karanja Kibicho. During the recent Mashujaa day celebration at Kirinyaga, Waiguru announced that she had not yet made a decision on which route to follow politically.
