President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee party is seemingly sinking to the political seabed as endless series of powerful and influential legislators decamping to other counterpart bigwig parties takes new shape.
Barely a year after Deputy President William Ruto led more than 150 MPs to completely dissociate from the ruling Jubilee party and joined United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ahead of 2022 general election, a score of other Uhuru’s close confidants have also been following the suit to open their new chapter of politics in DP Ruto’s UDA.
Immediately after the Kiambaa by-election where DP Ruto’s UDA candidate Hon John Njuguna Wanjiku wrestled down President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee candidate Hon Kariri Njama, the hustler nation axis has been receiving new defectors from other parties to push the Bottom-Up economy wheel ahead of next year’s general election.
A week after Kiambu Women Representative Hon Gathoni Wamuchomba announced her official exit from Jubilee party, the former Kiambu governor Hon Ferdinand Waititu followed the trail and stamped DP Ruto’s presidency in 2022 race. The former Awendo MP Hon Jared Kopiyo also ditched ODM party and joined DP Ruto’s UDA.
With less than 9 months remaining to 2022 long awaited hot race, Laikipia Women Representative Hon Care Waruguru who is president Uhuru Kenyatta’s longtime defender has hinted on joining either DP Ruto’s UDA or Raila Odinga’s ODM.
Hon Waruguru showered praises to Laikipia residents for welcoming DP Ruto and Raila Odinga in Nanyuki and Nyahururu who camped into the region while drumming for their 2022 presidential bids. “As Laikipians, we celebrate Utamaduni Day with respect to freedom of choice” she noted.
However, her last sentiments grasped the attention of many people that speculated her anticipated move of decamping from Jubilee to either join UDA or ODM. “On this day, I seek your opinion who would you rather I join going forward, Raila Odinga or William Ruto?” She added.
This remarks exuded her next move of bidding president Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee party farewell and seek to revamp her political ambition with Raila or Ruto.
