Why Waiguru Has Ditched Jubilee For Ruto's UDA

Today 17 October, Sunday morning during an exclusive interview with a local daily, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru has stated that President Uhuru understands why she has to ditch Jubilee party for Ruto's UDA.

She added that the President understands why she has to seek for re-election through another political vehicle.

"Uhuru is a politician par excellence. Look at his track record, he understands what I am doing completely, because what use am I to Uhuru if I am out?" she posed.

The former Devolution minister argued that her sole focus in next year's polls is how she will secure her governor seat.

"The first rule in politics, in my view, is that you first secure your seat because that is what gives you audience," she stated.

Waigurud continued by admiting that the Wanjiki in her county has shifted to Ruto's UDA party.

"Where I come from, the Wanjiku are tending to be on the UDA side. Now, I can make a choice and go against the grain and I could probably win, but would not have a very good time governing because MCAs would go the Wanjiku way," she said.

Do you think the governor's move to UDA will continue to popularize DP Ruto's UDA in the mountain?
