Ahead of 2022, bad news has been reported, as DP has been forced to cancel his Karen meeting

It is now undeniable that Kirinyaga County Governor Hon Anne Mumbi Waiguru has sparked a schism that will inevitably affect DP Ruto's presidential bid in 2022.

This comes after a flurry of confirmed allegations that her defection to the UDA Party has enraged Hon Wangui Ngirici, even as new reports suggest that Ruto's men are likely to back Waiguru's 2022 bid despite claims that she wields a lot of power.

In Kirinyaga, for example, UDA senior brass and strategists have been vying for Governor Anne Waiguru, who had a tense relationship with Dr Ruto earlier. The move has generated consternation in the county, with Kirinyaga Woman Representative Purity Wangui Ngirici, who is running for governor, feeling shortchanged," according to the Daily Nation.

However, new reports indicate that Deputy President William Ruto has been forced to cancel his much-anticipated Karen Meetinv, where he was due to meet with UDA aspirants from his Rift Valley backyard.

The discussion was to be held in the context of candidates' concerns about the approaching nomination process, according to the article. They requested assurances that no preferred candidates for governor, Senate, legislative, or county assembly positions would be chosen.
