Waiguru has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to mend his relationship with Deputy President William Ruto before he retires from office.
Speaking in Kirinyaga County on Tuesday, Waiguru who is seeking to defend her seat at the August polls under a UDA ticket, alluded that President Kenyatta owes the DP since he played an integral role in getting the Head-of-State into State House.
According to Waiguru, should the Head of State fail to do this, Mt. Kenya residents who she says are firmly behind DP Ruto’s presidential bid will abandon President Kenyatta once his term expires in August.
“Sisi tunakuomba kwa heshima, miezi nne ambayo imebaki, tafadhali fanya handshake na William Ruto ndio hawa watu wasikuwe pande moja na wewe usikuwe upande mwingine ukienda nyumbani kwa sababu hautafuti kiti. Tena tunakuomba umsalimie ndio uende nyumbani na heshima yako,” Waiguru said.
Waiguru went on to advise President Kenyatta that he is better off cutting ties with certain members of his camp who are allegedly misguiding him and influencing his decision making.
“Sisi tunakuomba mheshimiwa Rais hawa watu ambao wamekuzingira nakuomba uwabadilishe kwa sababu hao ndio wanakupoteza njia. Kukuambia uwekele William Samoei Ruto hizo maneno ndio achukiwe na watu wa Mt. Kenya,” she said.
The Kirinyaga governor likewise stated that Kenyatta should leave DP Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga to battle it out in the race to State House without any influence from the Head-of-State.
Kirinyaga residents, Waiguru added, will firmly back DP Ruto despite what is being suggested by his competitors.
“Ulikuwa umesema miaka kumi yako na kumi ya Ruto kwa hivyo tunakuomba kwa heshima. Fanya handshake alafu utoke hapo, umwache William Ruto amenyane na huyu mzee wa Azimio,” she added.
