Nearly a week after making an abrupt U-turn leaving President Uhuru camp for his Deputy, Kiambu County woman representative Gathoni Wamuchomba has spoken, revealing why she joined the hustler house.
Speaking yesterday, Wamuchomba stated that her people of Kiambu were angry with President Uhuru Kenyatta, and it was this move that pushed her to make the move.
She noted that their hunger was prompted by his personal decision, and in the ruling Jubilee party despite their overwhelming support in 2013 and 2017 general elections.
Wamuchoma further stated that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga and reports of their potential merger ahead of the 2022 are some of the causes of the anger of her Kiambu people.
“Watu wangu wa Kiambu wamenionyesha kwamba wao wamesonga wameachana na Uhuru Kenyatta wanataka William Ruto na wamekasirika. Sijui kama mheshimiwa rais anajua watu wamekasirika.
“Watu wamekasirikia kwa sababu zile salamu alienda kusalimiana wanasema hawakuhusishwa. Pia hii maneno ameleta ya proposal kwamba Jubilee itashikana na ODM wananchi wamekasirika wanasema hawakumpatia nguvu ya kuunganisha chama ya Jubilee na ODM bila ata kuitisha National Management Committee meeting… Tunaona hio ni madharau, tunaona hio ni kuwekwa kando, tunaonekana ni kama hatuna nguvu, kwa hivyo ni afadhali tufuate mtu anaona sisi tuko na maana,” she said.
This comes just days after the firebrand woman representative bolted out of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s wing of Kieleweke, while joining the DP’s hustler house.
Reports indicates that she enjoys massive support from her Kiambu County base, being the third most voted for politician in the last general election after President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
