Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has hit back at Purity Ngirici calling out the Woman Representative over her statement on taking a break from the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) in favor of Waiguru. 

In her response to Ngirici, Waiguru said that UDA is a national political party where everyone is allowed to join. 

“There is no party for individuals, a political party is for every Kenyan and UDA is for everyone,” Waiguru said. 

According to the Governor, no one should be given priority in a political party just because he or she joined earlier. 

In her defense, Waiguru said that she listened to the electorate before she made the move to switch camps from Jubilee to UDA.

“It is the voters who told me to join UDA. I only have one vote. It is the citizens who will decide when the time for elections comes,” Waiguru said. 

The Governor further urged Ngirici to be open to competition stating that it is the electorate who will determine their next leader.

On Thursday, Ngirici took a swipe at Waiguru accusing her of always copying her political moves. 

“Politics is like a chess game, you must study it well. I have retreated to study it carefully before making my next move,” Ngirici told a local daily.
