"After extensive consultation with Kirinyaga people, I’ve decamped to hustler nation. 2022 Chama ni UDA, form ni hustler, mpango ni bottom up! Thank you, MCAs led by the Majority Leader, Speaker, Deputy Speaker and Chair Women Caucus for accompanying me on my journey to join Hustler Nation," she shared on her social media handles.

"You said you have been waiting for this moment and even on this other side, we have been waiting for this moment because we all knew it was going to happen.

"We are one family, we have a history together, we have done many things together, we have complemented one another and we have formed a formidable team that has not only won us one election but has also helped us have a track record.

"It would have been a big loss if we didn't come together to build on the successes we have and take this country to the next level. I am a very proud person this morning that we are making the decision together," Ruto said who seemed to be backing Waiguru to retain her seat.
