Kirinyaga County Woman Representative Hon Purity Ngirici has ignited mixed reactions after welcoming President Uhuru Kenyatta to Kirinyaga.
The vocal legislator who is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto shared a poster welcoming the President for the forthcoming Mashujaa Day celebration scheduled to take place in the county.
This comes shortly after the politician threatened to dump Ruto's UDA after her main rival in the County's gubernatorial race, Anne Waiguru, allegedly joined the camp.
Ngirici and her husband claimed that they are the one who have been drumming support for Ruto and should be accorded due respect, adding that they are the ones behind the huge crowd Ruto pulls on the county.
Their remarks came shortly after governor Waiguru met with some of the UDA female leaders led by Senator Susan Kihika, Aisha Jumwa and Hon Mukami.
Ngirici's post has triggered mixed reactions from Kenyans online who have been left speculating that she might be considering to dump DP Ruto and join Uhuru's team.
