Kiambu: MP Wainaina Wajungle Now Joins Dp Ruto's Camp In Readiness For 2022 Polls

Thika Town Member of Parliament Patrick Wainaina alias Wajungle has finally joined deputy president Dr William Ruto ahead of 2022 general election.

This follows after Wajungle became of the 25 MPs who accompanied Dr Ruto while at a trip to Kiambaa constituency on Sunday where they marketed Hustler Nation narrative and United Democratic Alliance (UDA) agenda.

The lawmakers also drummed up support for the DP's 2022 presidential bid. They urged locals and Kenyans at large to embrace bottom-up economic policies and rally behind the second in command so that they benefit immensely.

The move by Wajungle has now boosted Dr Ruto's footsolders in Kiambu. This is because, the DP is now seen to have a larger following from elected leaders more than any other 2022 presidential hopeful in the county. The country's second in command has 7 MPs who subscribe to his Hustler Nation narrative. They include Gathoni Wamuchomba (Kiambu Women Representative) Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Anthony Kimani Ichung'wah (Kikuyu), Gathua Wamucukuru (Kabete), John Njuguna (Kiambaa) and George Koimburi (Juja).

However, some constituency lawmakers are still in Kieleweke faction of the ruling party Jubilee . Among them are Jonan Mburu (Lari), Peter Mwathi (Limuru), Wanjiku Wakibe (Gatundu North), Gabriel Kago (Githunguri) and Jude Njomo (Kiambu Township). Simon Kingara who represents Ruiru constituency is the only MP whose political stand is clear.

Nontheless, senator Kimani Wamatangi who has ambitions to run for gubernatorial seat in the upcoming polls is independent minded, although he supports president Uhuru Kenyatta's agenda.

In 2022 general election, Dr Ruto will be relying on the aforementioned legislators to get to canvass for votes to bolster his chances of clinching presidency.
