Waiguru In Ngirici Out? Women Rep Contemplates Abandoning Ruto

Purity Ngirici joined the Tangatanga team of Deputy President William Ruto after the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Ngirici claims that she has been at the forefront of popularising UDA in Kirinyaga county and the greater Mt Kenya region since its inception. The Kirinyaga Women representative has also revealed how she financed the party and converted her family's offices into UDA offices.

Now she feels betrayed that the party leader accepted Kirinyaga Women representative and her competitor Ann Waiguru into the party to bask in her hard work. Ngirici says if that was not all, she together with the husband were insulted in the Tangatanga WhatsApp group which Ruto is a member.

In an interview with The Sunday Standard, Ngirici is now contemplating leaving UDA for good and joining a different party. She says that the Citizen Convention Party (CCP) is the best option for her. The party is headed by her husband."My issues are not mainly because Waiguru joined UDA but the bullying which is happening in the party. Some people have held Ruto hostage and this is working against his presidential ambition," she said.
