Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici has rebranded a building she had donated to serve as United Democratic Party (UDA) offices.
The building located in Kerugoya which had been branded with UDA’s yellow and green colors, logo and slogan on its entrance has since been painted white.
As if that’s not enough, Ngirici also removed UDA banners from her campaign truck, mini-vehicles and her sound system truck.
This comes barely a week after the county MP announced her decision to quit the DP William Ruto-led party.
Speaking on Wednesday, December 29, during a food donation in Mwea and Gichugu constituencies, Ngirici cited unfair treatment by UDA officials as the reason behind her move.
She added that UDA officials attempted to coerce her to back down on her gubernatorial seat and vie for a parliamentary seat.
“When I appeared at the headquarters, the officials tried to convince me to give up my gubernatorial ambitions and vie for the Mwea parliamentary seat on a UDA ticket
“I refused, as they were going to kill my dream. If UDA officials are telling me to vie for a junior seat, do you expect nominations to be free and fair?” Ngirici said.
Following her exit, Wangui stated that she will contest for the gubernatorial seat on an independent ticket.
Tension has been brewing up in the UDA party after Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru
