Huge Blow to Anne Waiguru After Lobby Group Vows to Back Up Ruto Ally as Kirinyaga Governor in 2022

A week ago, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru dismissed allegations that she was eyeing a running mate position in the coming presidential race, stating that she will defend her gubernatorial post.

The first term governor was viewed as a suitable running mate to the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, days after ODM and Jubilee announced merger talks for a joint presidential candidate.

A lobby group from Kirinyaga County that is made up of the youth have pledged to support the current Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici to unseat Waiguru come next year.

Speaking with the media, the youths argued that the die hard supporter of the Deputy President William Ruto has been engaging them in a number of projects despite her office's financial instability, and she has never been disrespectful or dismissed their grievances.

"We have sat down and found that the only leader who we elected and has been with us in different projects as youths is Wangui Ngirici. We will support her as youths in her gubernatorial race and that is why we have opened the Kirinyaga Youth Alliance."
