Kirinyaga Women Representative Wangui Ngirici has told off Governor Anne Waiguru for recently declaring her intent to join the UDA.
Ngirici said she was not afraid of political competition from Waiguru and was ready for a duel with her anytime, anywhere.
“I am not afraid of any possible competition from Waiguru who is still listening to what the ground is saying when we are already past that level,” she said.
The first time MP said she knows what the ground looks like unlike Waiguru who recently said she was listening to what the ground was saying before she made a move to join the bad wagon.
“I know how the ground looks like since I am always with the people, unlike the governor who is still listening to what the ground is saying before she decided her next move,” she said.
Speaking at Ndia in Kirinyaga West Sub-County during a peace initiative meeting Monday, Ngirici said in the worst case scenario should UDA ditch her, then she would jump ship as she was not tethered to the party like a goat.
The women rep who had just jetted back into the country from an overseas assignment said she was more than ready to battle it with Waiguru for the gubernatorial seat come next year’s general elections.
“Waiguru should go and vie for the gubernatorial position in Murang’a where she is married and leave us alone in Kirinyaga to decide on our own political destiny in as far as the governor’s seat is concerned,” she said.
Ngirici said the coveted seat should only be contested by only those who live with wananchi in the county and not by ‘day scholars’ who are never in touch with reality on the ground.
Her husband ‘General Andrew Ngirici’ who accompanied her said he was her number one supporter.
“Wangui is my wife and as her greatest political supporter, this time round we are not relenting until she becomes the third governor of this great county,” he declared.
Interior PS Karanja Kibiko and his Infrastructure counterpart Prof. Mwangi Maringa attended both meetings where they promised to ensure that peace prevails in the county for the continued the good of the residents.
