The public was treated to a surprise political alliance bringing together Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, her Makueni counterpart Prof. Kivutha Kibana and Raila Odinga in a bid to outsmart Deputy President William Ruto in the upcoming Kibra by-elections.

The Kirinyaga governor who was at one point said to be AMONG THOSE dp Ruto was eyeing to be his running mate in 2022 joined Raila Odinga for the Kibra ni Kwetu rally at Woodley grounds to drum up support for Bernard Imran Okoth.

The entry of Waiguru who now joins a host of other Jubilee party leaders who have openly declared support for ODM’s candidate Imran Okoth leaves Jubilee party a divided house with DP Ruto exposed a general without an army.

In the wake of the fallout witnessed shortly after Mariga’s dramatic entry into the race, critics as well as well-placed sources within the Jubilee party were quick to state that Mariga’s entry into the race was an individual agenda championed by DP Ruto and his allies.

Conspicuously missing in the campaigns is party leader Uhuru Kenyatta who insiders say wants nothing to do with the polls and had expressed reservations abot the party fielding a candidate.

Youth CAS Rachel Shebesh revealed that even the Mariga endorsement photos at State House were a charade, stating that he accessed State House through the back-door with DP Ruto’s handlers tricking the president.

Her political dalliance with the DP ended in a fallout after she asserted that Kenya was not ready for a President from the Kalenjin and Kikuyu communities that have produced Kenya’s presidents since independence.

In an outburst on Twitter, a visibly-offended DP Ruto took to Twitter and dismissed Waiguru’s comments, marking the end of the alliance.

Waiguru’s active participation in the team Embrace rally that supports the handshake act between Odinga and the President has not made things any better with the DP who has been a vocal critic of the handshake, taking any available opportunity to bash Odinga.
