Kenyans read politics
While Wanjigi’s post was aimed at bringing to light Waruguru’s leadership capabilities, his supporters read politics, concluding that the lawmaker could be wooing him to join the DP William Ruto-led hustler nation.
The tycoon is a known member of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party and eyes the presidency in the oncoming polls through the Raila Odinga-led party’s ticket.
Below are some of the reactions from Wanjigi’s followers:
@Ronald Ng’etich Kimutai:
“She can now direct you to the winning. Lazima tukufagie pia.”
“That’s why she had to join the winning team; UDA, the kind of leadership this nation requires…Join the hustlers.”
“NowI can confirm that you are part of Tanga tanga group.”
@Onyango Shadrack: “You’ve just confirmed our fears. You’re UDA insider.”
“Join Hustler nation and you will take over after William Ruto. Raila has misled you for a long.”
“Mr come to UDA. William Ruto will make you PS of Interior and Co-ordination of National Government.”
“We knew a long time ago that you’re a project of Ruto. A time is coming that you’ll know what we in ODM believe in.”
Waruguru officially in UDA
The lawmaker, a one-time proponent of the Uhuru-Raila handshake, officially decamped from the ruling Jubilee party to join the Ruto-linked United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
Speaking to a local media a close ally of the legislator, disclosed that all had been set for Waruguru to make the major political announcement at the deputy president’s official Karen residence.
“Everything has been planned and our boss will do it officially and welcomed in the party by Deputy president William Ruto at Karen,” the insider said.
She was received by the deputy president, vowing to preach the hustler nation’s bottom-up gospel in the run-up to the next year’s presidential vote.
