How Raila Odinga's Trip To Mount Kenya Has Influenced Waiguru's Decision Of Joining UDA

Raila Odinga made a tour in Mount Kenya last week. The political rally pulled a lot of attention which proved that he can be sellable to the Agikuyu community. Today Kirinyaga county governor Anne Waiguru has changed her mind. This is after rumours that she was on the verge joining UDA party.

The governor has been confused of which party she would use to defend her seat. This is because her current Jubilee party is collapsing. The wrangles between president Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are the main reasons for the failure of the party.

Waiguru now says that she considers running as an independent candidate. This is because there is no clear strong party in the Mount Kenya region. This may be her best choice as in UDA she would face the current county woman representative Ngirici. She is also eying the gubernatorial seat.

With a few months to go to the next general elections, a number of political defections will be noticed. Politicians are looking for the best deals possible for their own survival.
