Barely a day after Laikipia Women Representative Cate Waruguru was knocked out of the Laikipia East UDA nominations, the Lawmaker has landed a new job.
According to Safina party president leader Jimmy Wanjigi’s post, Waruguru has been received as a Media Secretary in the Wanjigi’s presidential team.
”We continue to build strong team as we head towards the August elections.
My sister @Cate waruguru has officially joined my president campaign team as media Secretary.” Wanjigi wrote on facebook.
Waruguru appeared to be the latest casualty, as she lost in the just-concluded nominations for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) in the Laikipia East constituency.
Waruguru who garnered 5,595 votes was angling for the UDA ticket has been floored by her rival Laikipia East MP Amin Deddy who appeared to have more than double what the Woman rep got at 12,723.
Last month, Waruguru picked a fight with Deddy whom she accused of perpetuating politics of intimidation and harassment.
She alleged that the MP was scared of her beauty and has resorted to destroying her posters and banners within the constituency.
Last November, Waruguru officially announced her future political plans by joining UDA and was officially received weeks later by Deputy President William Ruto.
