Kirinyaga County Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici has ditched DP Ruto’s UDA party in what has been termed as a protest exit.
She has announced that she will be on the ballot for the gubernatorial position as an independent candidate.
It has been seen as a blow to Deputy President William Ruto, who has been traversing the Kirinyaga County to sell his bottom-up model.
Giving reasons for her decision, Mrs Wangui Ngirici said that she was not happy with the way UDA officials were running the party’s affairs.
She alleges that UDA party officials have not treated her right, claiming she has invested so much in DP Ruto’s political outfit.

Mrs Wangui Ngirici has also accused UDA party officials of favouring her opponent, governor Anne Waiguru.
Rumours have it that she could support ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
MrsWangui Ngirici claimed that she was summoned to the UDA party headquarters in Nairobi and told to step down for Governor Anne Waiguru.
She spoke on Wednesday during a food donation function to the residents of Gichugu and Mwea constituencies.
She said, “When I appeared at the headquarters, the officials tried to convince me to give up my gubernatorial ambitions and vie for the Mwea parliamentary seat on a UDA ticket. I refused, as they were determined to kill my dream.”
“If UDA officials are telling me to vie for a junior seat, do you expect nominations to be free and fair?” she added.
“My decision is final and I will not retreat,” she added.
She told the residents to choose wifely and freely, ODM leader Raila Odinga, Amani National Congress’ Musalia Mudavadi or Dr Ruto as President.
An indication that she was already fade-up with UDA and its leadership.
