Following Alice Wahome's appointment to the cabinet, renowned journalist Waithira Muithirania declared her intention to run for the parliamentary seat in the Kandara constituency.
President William Ruto proposed Alice as the CS for Water and therefore left the seat vacant. On a Jubilee party ticket, the former Inooro FM radio host competed for the Murang'a woman representative seat, but Betty Njeri Maina of the UDA defeated her.
On Friday morning, Waithira declared that she had joined the UDA party after leaving the Jubilee party. She declared that she is getting ready to run on a UDA party ticket for the Kandara seat.
At one point, Muithirania became upset and started shedding tears as she begged the constituents not to think about her past when she supported Jubilee party.
"I am pleading with the people of Kandara to accept me the way I am. They should not concentrate with my dark past. I am like the prodigal son who was lost but when he came back home, he was warmly welcomed. People of Kandara should forgive me and accept me in UDA. I will work for them and will not let them down," she said.
