Kirinyaga Woman Representative, Wangui Ngirici, has named KRA former assistant commissioner Eliud Wanjao Ngige as her running mate in the race for the governor seat.
Ngige hails from Ndia constituency.
Ngirici defected from Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA to run as an independent candidate, citing favouritism.
The Woman Representative alleged that despite being among the early followers of Ruto, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was favoured for the UDA ticket.
Ngirici caused a stir when she released her campaign slogan dubbed ‘Smairo ni tiki’ with her symbol featuring a photo of her actual teeth.
