Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has come clear on whether she will be leaving Jubilee party for Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA part.
reiterated that she is unlikely to join Deputy President William Ruto-linked UDA party.
In an interview with a local radio station on Monday, Waiguru said it was unlikely for her to join UDA party.
Waiguru also said it was too early to make conclusions that she will not join UDA.
She said her fate lied with her supporters who will direct her on her next political move, but did not deny the possibility of leaving Jubilee.
The Kirinyaga Governor said it was still early to decide which route she will take in the 2022 general elections.
“I don’t think it’s the right time to have that conversation. I can’t say I would, I can’t say I would not. This is politics, it’s unlikely, but a bit early. Let’s see what the ground looks like,” she said
The governor said re-election was not entirely dependent on how well one has performed during his or her tenure.
“I cannot vote myself in, so, I’m listening very carefully to what it is that they want. In politics, it’s not just about performance, you can be a fantastic performer and not be re-elected,” Waiguru said.
Waiguru further said that anyone who thinks they have performed and therefore should be re-elected is very naïve in politics and sometimes believes politicians are elected on waves of political partie
Come 2022 general elections Waiguru will face a stiff competition against Kirinyaga County Woman Representative Purity Ngirici who has also declared her interest in the gubernatorial seat.
