Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru Officially Ditches Jubilee and Joins Ruto’s UDA

Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru has finally made her decision to ditch Jubilee, and join Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA. Waiguru, who is seeking a second term as Kirinyaga Governor in 2022, met DP Ruto at his Karen residence on Tuesday morning.

Waiguru stated that she has listened to supporters on the ground and they are all chanting the hustler tune.

“Wale watu ambao tunatuhudumia kule mashinani wote wametuambia chama ni UDA na form ni hustler…,” she said.

She was accompanied by 23 Kirinyaga Members of County Assembly which shows that the county has decided to go in one direction.

Waiguru has hinted in recent weeks that Jubilee was a dead party and that the ground beneath her had shifted. It was seen as just a matter of time before she officially decamped.

In her own words, Waiguru recently acknowledged that that was a nightmare scenario for her.

“If I ran today on a Jubilee ticket and someone else ran on a different party, even if people felt I had performed , it would be hard to convince them to vote for me,” she said.
