As the war of words between Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru and Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici intensifies, the two political rivals have dragged their husbands into their political battlefield.

While calling out Ngirici whose husband has been tagging along in her campaigns, Waiguru said that she has a handsome husband, but has never used him to further her political campaigns.

Waiguru told off her competitor Wangui Ngirici to campaign for herself and not bring her husband Andrew Ngirici into their political duel.

In her response, Ngirici said Waiguru's sentiments were an insult to her.

"Waiguru alisema bwanake amesoma, ako an pesa an hana wakati wa kuzunguka zunguka,alinitukana sana."

(Waiguru said that her husband is educated, has money and doesn't have time to make rounds in the county. Thats an insult to me) Ngirici stated.

This, she said while speaking at the Sifa Gardens in Kutus on Friday during the launch of Kutus Riders Operators Operators Sacco.

Ngirici's husband has constantly campaigned for his wife and does not shy away from doing so all over the county.

On Thursday, Wangui said she does not see anything wrong in being boosted and supported politically by her husband.

Ngirici'Ss husband has however insisted on assisting his wife, Purity Wangui, in her campaigns and ensure that she becomes the third governor of Kirinyaga county in next year's general elections.
