Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici, has now revealed Kirinyaga County residents have pushed and advised her to throw her weight behind ODM leader Raila Odinga in his quest for the presidency.
According to Ngirici, her supporters felt let down when she was ‘betrayed’ by Deputy President William Ruto and his United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party despite her efforts to establish and popularise the outfit in Kirinyaga County.
She warned that if UDA does not stop this, the party will lose popularity and get out of touch with the electorate.
But she claimed that the cartel has the blessing of Ruto since the ‘gang’ operates without fear.Citing an instance when insults were hurled at her in a Tanga Tanga Whatsapp group.
“I was humiliated and body shamed by the likes of Aisha Jumwa but Ruto never uttered a word. For this reason I can never go back to UDA even if I was given a direct ticket,” she added.
Ngirici claimed that there will be mass exodus from UDA party since many leaders are tired of gagging and dictatorship.
“From North Eastern to Mt Kenya region I am in communication with leaders who have informed me they are waiting for the opportune time to move out of the party,” she added.
On the controversial Political Parties Amendment Bill, Ngirici said the Bill was what Mt Kenya region needed and lashed out at Ruto and his battalion for standing against ‘what is good for Mt Kenya region.
“I was out of the country but the Bill is good for our region, those who voted against it are hypocrites and do not wish our region well, coalitions are what will guarantee our place in the next government,” she said.
