A dramatic scene has unfolded in Kianyaga shopping centre, Kirinyaga county, after residents rejected being addressed by some leaders. This was after DP Ruto and his entourage made a stopover after attending a church service in Kianyaga ACK church.The first leader to be humiliated by the crowd was Gichugu member of parliament, Gichimu. When the legislator was invited to speak, the crowd started to boo him while chanting the name of the area's former MP, Njogu Barua.

However, Gichimu managed to speak amidst all the noises, where he said that he would stick to the UDA party. He added that he is looking forward to free and fair nominations.

Another leader who was rejected and humiliated by the crowd was the Kirinyaga women's representative, Wangui Ngirici. Contrary to the expectations of many, the crowd turned hostile when Ngirici was invited to speak.

Ngirici, however, affirmed her support for the UDA party despite the heckling. She also pledged to continue supporting the deputy president in his quest for the top seat.
