Waiguru's Message Last Night Elicits Reactions Online from Kenyans

Yesterday was a big day for Kenya Kwanza Alliance as Ruto availed his running mate for the coming elections.

Waiguru who was among the aspirants for the post was also present in the occasion.

Waiguru kept a low profile after leaving Cabinet until 2017, when she was elected governor of Kirinyaga by the Jubilee Party. In the polls, she defeated longtime lawmaker Martha Karua and won.

She backed Uhuru's handshake with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, as well as the Building Bridges Initiative that followed (BBI). In October 2021, she did, however, join Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Since joining Ruto's organization, Waiguru's star has continued to rise, and she is currently considered one of the leading prospects for the Kenya Kwanza running mate position.

Today just moments after Gachagua was appointed by DP Ruto to be his running mate, Anne Waiguru accepted Gachagua and sent congratulatory messages to him.

Below is what she said.

"Congratulations Hon. @rigathi on your appointment as the running mate to Kenya's 5th President @WilliamsRuto in @KenyaKwanza Coalition. Godspeed!" She penned.

Below are reactions from the public on what she said.

What do you think about Gachagua being DP Ruto's running mate?
