Win For Ruto After Vocal Politician Endorses Ruto for Presidency

The ruling Jubilee party has received a crashing blow after another strong supporter decamped to Deputy president William Ruto's Hustler Nation.

After weeks of giving hints of her impending defection, Laikipia woman rep Cate Waruguru has finally ditched Jubilee for UDA, and declared her unwavering support for deputy president William Ruto's presidential ambitions.

"After attending over 40 meetings with wananchi on the ground I have discovered what the people want. As a wise woman, I’m saying William Samoei Ruto is the best bet for the presidency,” she said.

“Don’t waste your votes on nonstarters let’s support Ruto,” she added.

Waruguru is the latest to join TangaTanga, after her counterpart Gathoni wa Muchomba defected to Hustler Nation 4 weeks ago.

The two Mt Kenya politicians have been President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga's strong supporters, but Hustler Nation's victories in Juja and Kiambaa constituencies is said to have made them reconsider their affiliations ahead of 2022.
