The entry of Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru into the United Democratic Alliance(UDA) has created a rift between the party and Kirinyaga Women Rep Purity Ngirici.
Thursday, November 25, Ngirici expressed regret for funding UDA to the tune of millions.
Kirinyaga Women Rep Purity Ngirici regrets that despite all the sacrifices, the party seemed to support her rival Governor Waiguru.
“I don’t even want to remember how much I have used to build the UDA party in Kirinyaga from scratch, but I’m young in politics and still learning,” Ngirici stated.
Waiguru’s defection to the UDA party, in Ngirici’s opinion, has ‘opened her eyes.’
“I popularised UDA Party in Kirinyaga County. I convinced my people that UDA was the political outfit to join, and that Ruto was the man best-suited to take over from [President] Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
I also made them see the gaps in BBI, which was being championed by the President’s team,” she said.
“During that time, Waiguru was on the other side opposing Ruto, claiming that the DP had rented members of the Kikuyu community.
She was also at the forefront popularising BBI across Kenya,” said Ngirici.
She expressed confidence that her supporters will follow her, regardless of the party she will be vying on.

Senator Malala, ANC party SG in heated exchange over DP Ruto’s Eldoret rally
In a statement, the youthful politician stated that he did not attend the rally on behalf of Amani Nation Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi as widely claimed on social media.
Malala argued that as an elected leader, his responsibility is to lead his people to the right direction before making any decision ahead of the August 9 General Elections.
“In my address, I did not say that I was representing the ANC party or the party leader. As an elected leader, my role is to propel our members towards forming the next government.
Anyway, our new SG is still under orientation,” Malala wrote on Twitter.
The Senator issued the statement after ANC through its Secretary-General Simon Gakuru distanced itself from Ruto’s rally, denying sending any representative.
“The ANC party would like to disassociate itself with the activities taking place at Eldoret Sports Club Grounds where UDA Party is holding its rally.
The official party position should only come from our party leader or the secretary-general,” Gakuru said in a Tweet
