Wamaua announced her defection while she hosted Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza counterparts, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart, Moses Wetangula at the Kimomori ground in Maragua, Murang'a County.

The MP grabbed headlines after she was caught up in the chaos during the launch of the Azimio la Umoja at the Kasarani Sports Stadium.

The legislator was roughed up by security personnel as she made her way into the event presided over by Raila Odinga.
