Recently, Uhuru was in Kirinyaga County where two women are battling out for the governors seat. However, Martha Karua and incumbent governor Joseph Ndathi were heckled and booed and Waiguru said that it was an indication of her popularity in the region.
According to Waiguru, the actions by residents showed that she had gained advantage given that she was warmly received and cheered compared to the reception her competitors received.
“The warm reception I received from the people of Kirinyaga on Tuesday is evidence enough that they have confidence in me and my track record,” she stated.
During the visit, President Kenyatta was forced to temporarily cut short his speech as residents demanded to be addressed by Waiguru.
Cheers filled the air as she was being introduced by Deputy President William Ruto despite the two having engaged in verbal exchanges weeks ago.
On the other hand, Karua was shouted down by Jubilee supporters who demanded that she joins the Party forcing her to end her address.
In her never-say-die spirit, the ‘iron lady’ flashed two fingers – a symbol of the Narc-Kenya party- indicating that she would not be intimidated into joining Jubilee then surrendered the microphone to Ruto.
