Within minutes of Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru committing yesterday’s epic blunder where she mistakenly paid homage to Raila Odinga instead of the Deputy President, the reaction from Wangui Ngirici was swift and surprising. Worth noting is that Kirinyaga’s Women Representative Purity Ngirici bolted out of the United Democratic Alliance party acrimoniously last year, blaming her exit on the entry of Anne Waiguru.
Just moments after Waiguru’s gaffe, in a show of maturity, Wangui Ngirici posted a tweet which entirely ignored the incident and instead concentrated on her activities in Ciagini. She shared with her followers how she had assisted Marurumo Women’s Group, and acknowledged the good wishes of the people of Ciagini. Her tweet read,
Mashinani interaction entourage today at Wamumu ward where I issued NGAAF cheque to Thanyu marurumo women group. I also acknowledged greetings and goodwill from the people of Ciagini. #MûtumiawaWîra.
Governor Waiguru was yesterday forced to apologise to the Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders after she mistakenly referred to DP William Ruto as “Azimio leader”.
The Kenya Kwanza Alliance led by Ruto was formally signing coalition agreements with its constituent parties during the event.
It is when Waiguru was ushered to the podium to speak that she inadvertently referred to the DP as the “Azimio leader” during the introductory part of her speech.
“Your excellency the Deputy President of Kenya, the party leader of UDA and the leader of the Azimio group… Sorry, my goodness,? Waiguru said.
She immediately clarified that she was thinking of chiding the Azimio outfit hence the slip of the tongue.
“…And the leader of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, my sincere apologies, because I was thinking about what I will say about them.”
The eight parties joined the formation during the signing of the Coalition Agreement with Kenya Kwanza founding parties, UDA, ANC and Ford-Kenya.
Ruto, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wentangula witnessed the occasion.
Each of the parties will retain its distinct identities while supporting the Kenya Kwanza Alliance flag bearer in the presidential contest.
