A photo posted by Nakuru senator Susan Kihika has stirred mixed reactions among Kenyans online.

In the photo, was Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru, Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Nakuru senator Susan Kihika and Nyeri Woman Representative Wachira Rahab Mukami.

The photo that was captioned, "Just girls catching up! Happy Friday Friends", has got Kenyans talking due to Waiguru's recent indications that she could be warming up for Ruto's UDA party.

In recent media interviews, the Jubilee governor has hinted that she is considering using a different political vehicle in her quest for re-election.

Her association with the avid Ruto supporters has sparked even more speculations about her next political destination.

Some quarters have however not welcomed her imminent move, saying that her defection will pit her against, an equally strong, Kirinyaga Woman Representative Purity Ngirici in the party primaries for the outfit's gubernatorial ticket.

A separate faction has positively welcomed her move opining that she would be a vital addition to Ruto's hustler nation party.

Here are some of the reactions sampled by People Daily Digital;

Chris Okioma; Even on a UDA ticket, Waiguru will still not make it. Corruption is her worst undoing

Mbuku Michael; Queen ladies of Hustler Nation Movement has welcomed Gov. Anne Waiguru as new signing to UDA

Kuria Mbogo; Waiguru's presence there has spoiled that picture completely. If she joins UDA that party is finished. The voters will rejected you all.

Aston; Well come home Anne Waiguru just enjoy the fruits of UDA party. Thank you my senator Susan Kihika for bringing everyone on board.
