Waiguru’s reflector jackets burnt ahead of Ruto’s Kirinyaga visit
A group of youths allied to Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici on Sunday morning set ablaze branded reflector jackets in Gîchûgû Constituency.
The jackets, branded with Goveror Ann Waiguru's name and photo, were set on fire on the middle of Kianyaga-Kutus road ahead of Deputy President William Ruto's visit later today.
Today's visit by the DP is his first since Governor Waiguru ditched the ruling party Jubilee and joined Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a move that threatened to dim Wangui's shining star at the party she played a major role to establish.
According to reports doing round within the county, sections aligned to both Waiguru and Wangui are already set for a political showdown.
It is alleged that there are plans to heckle some leaders especially those from outside Kirinyaga county.
