Troubled Kirinyaga county Governor Anne Waiguru who has been sending indications of ditching Jubilee Party has come out to speak about her next political move.
Governor Waiguru during an interview with KTN news on Friday, September 17, has said that she is still weighing her options and has not promised any of the presidential candidates her support.
“I am still weighing options, I have not made a commitment to anybody,” Waiguru said.
Lately, the first term governor has been seen positioning herself as a presidential running mate having meeting with some presidential candidates including ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka.
However, Waiguru has yet again declared that she will defend her seat and will not move to any position but in case of otherwise she will make it known to the public.
“My focus is seeking to be re-elected as Governor of Kirinyaga County. If the situation changes we will announce it,” she stated.
She is saying presidential candidates are interested in Mt Kenya because of their numbers and the region can determine who to be the president.
“Those who are interested in the top leadership in the country have trooped Mt. Kenya because of our numbers. We have a range of about 9 million votes in total. Anybody who is able to add these numbers to their own votes can be president,” she said.
Waiguru who previously did not rule out the possibility of working with Deputy President William Ruto will face Kirinyaga Women Representative Purity Ngirici, Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua among others.
