Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru is leaving nothing to chance as far as preparations for the Deputy President William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula’s grand rally in Kirinyaga county on Saturday is concerned.
The resilient UDA allied county boss took the better part of Thursday afternoon engaging Kirinyaga county residents and preparing them on how to welcome the three principles into Kirinyaga despite the challenges that they have encountered while trying to host them.
This was after Waiguru and UDA allies were denied access and permit to host their party boss Deputy President William Ruto at the newly constructed Wangu’uru stadium in Mwea Constituency.
According to reports, the stadium is still under renovations and will not be able to accommodate UDA rally, a move that was protested by Waiguru and UDA, who questioned how the stadium hosted Mashujaa Day Celebrations but could not host Ruto’s rally.
However, after the rally was relocated to Thiba ward, Waiguru met a number of UDA supporters and trained them on how to welcome the three Kenya Kwanza Alliance Principals on Saturday.
Waiguru incorporated the three UDA, ANC and Ford Kenya slogans; Kazi ni Kazi, Pesa Mfukoni and Simba to come up with a perfect combination as heard from a video posted online.
“Harambee (Response) UDA, UDA? (response) Kazi ni kazi, Minji minji? (response) Wera warie…Harambee (response) Kenya kwanza, Kenya kwanza? (response) Kazi ni kazi, Kazi ni kazi? (response) Bottom-up, Uchumi Bora, Pesa Mfukoni , kura kwa Ruto” chanted Waiguru and her supporters warming up the internet.
Waiguru will face off with former UDA MP Purity Ngirici who dumped the party and announced that she will be running on an independent ticket.
It is not yet clear whether Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua will also throw her hat into the ring or whether she will consider running for national politics.
