Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has spoken out in response to reports that measures are being made to prevent Deputy President William Ruto from visiting Kirinyaga county this Sunday, as his adversary the Ngirici family speaks out.
According to the Kirinyaga County Boss, reports on social media claiming Deputy President William Ruto had canceled his visit to Kirinyaga were untrue.
Extending that those alleging a plot to derail the DP are relying on misleading reports.
The Kirinyaga Governor stated that she remains committed to the DP, adding that Kirinyaga residents are eager to greet him and that she is more than willing to mobilize as many people as possible to attend a future DP Ruto event.
"Those are slanderous allegations. We are prepared to welcome him in Kirinyaga and invite as many county residents as possible to demonstrate their support."
General Andrew Ngirici, Wangui's husband, was also quoted by the Star as stating that he is not a part of any plan to obstruct the DP and that he will gather his followers to welcome Ruto.
Wangui Ngirici has also stated that despite their disagreement with Waiguru, she will attend a Sunday event in Kirinyaga that DP Ruto is anticipated to grace, stating that she will not engage DP Ruto outside of Kirinyaga concerns.
"You will never hear or see me ascending a presidential campaign truck." I will focus on Kirinyaga, which is why I will attend his (Ruto's) meeting in the county on Sunday, primarily because it falls under my jurisdiction and area of representation," she explained.
