Mathira mp, Rigathi Gachagua have warned Waiguru that if she fails to honour residents' call for her to join UDA she would be risking losing her seat in the upcoming polls. He adds that the punishment of the people is a long-term compared to a state persecution.
"We applaud Governor Waiguru for the courage, I know they will pester her here and there. But it is better for her to be pestered by police than be punished by citizens. You know the citizens' punishment is legal it has no appeal once they are done with you it is five years, but this thing of being apprehended on Monday, Friday is a simple thing."
"UDA is a very popular party here and we want to say that all those who are coming are welcome, our party is very democratic, very wide and we will accommodate everybody," Rigathi remarked.
Waiguru's hint on joining UDA has ignited political rivalry in Kirinyaga region. Waiguru admitted that she will follow the will of the people and their advice. Kirinyaga Governor admitted that she may lose the election if she keeps on defending her Jubilee ticket.
“The truth of the matter is that defending my seat if the polls were held today, would be very difficult, and that is the truth of the matter, Jubilee needs to look internally at its issues in order to be acceptable to the people of Mt Kenya.
“If I ran today on a Jubilee ticket and someone else ran on a different party, even if people felt I had performed, it would be hard to convince them to vote for me.” Waiguru stated.
