Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has made a political turn making her the latest member of the Tanga Tanga team to ditch Deputy President William Ruto.
According to the first time governor, she ditched the DP due to his ill-timed presidential campaigns and perceived undermining President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Daily Nation reported that Waiguru who has been a key ally of the DP from Mt Kenya region id now ready to support the handshake between Uhuru and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Murang’a Woman Rep Sabina Chege also changed tune and backed the handshake campaign which saw her heckled by a section of the crowd during the Embrace Kenya women leaders’ meeting in her backyard.
The two made the political turn while in the company of other female politicians who attended the event.
Waiguru further cautioned leaders from the region against openly campaigning for Ruto while Uhuru was still in office and asked those with presidential ambitions to shelve them until 2022.
“Even when the deputy president was coming for negotiations (with President Kenyatta), he came with conditions, we shall also come with our conditions to see who to support in 2022,” she warned.
“Even the former Presidents had their deputies who did not campaign when they were in power. Let us wait and we shall organise ourselves in future,” she added.
Other leaders who attended the rally included Women Representatives Gladys Wanga (Homa Bay), Fatuma Gedi (Wajir) Likoni MP Mishi Mboko and Rachel Shebesh among other leaders.
Kitutu Chache MP Richard Onyonka is another politician who decamped team Tanga Tanga despite having worked closely with Ruto.
