Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Thursday May 26 had the opportunity of addressing the residents of Ngariama, where she requested the residents to support her re-election, and that of Deputy President William Ruto as the fifth president of Kenya.
Waiguru who had gone to issued the residents with chairs, dairy and sports equipment and also ECDE books to young scholar, asked the residents on whether they had shifted their support from Ruto to the Azimio La Umoja Camp and they changed by saying 'hapana' which translated to ,'no.'
The residents affirmed that they will vote for Ruto, and the leaders eyeing different seats in the August polls under the United Democratic Alliance, UDA Party.
The first term governor further criticized her opponents who 'sponsored' people to destroy her billboards, saying that Kirinyaga residents can elect her even without billboards, and the main issue that voters will considered is how a leader has delivered and what they have in store for the residents.
"We will be elected without those banners, we do not want chaos, we want peace and respect as we near the August polls. I hear that Nairobi has changed, has Kirinyaga changed? Who is your president? Which party do you support? What about the governor? Asked Waiguru as the residents responded by saying, 'hapana, William Samoei Ruto, UDA and Waiguru' respectively.
Waiguru will be battling it off on August 9 with the county's Woman Rep Wangui Ngirici who is running as an independent candidate and Jubilee Party's Charles Kibiru.
