On Sunday, Deputy President William Ruto encouraged opponents Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and candidate Purity Ngirici to battle for the UDA governor's ticket in a fair and open contest.
The DP was making his first trip to the county since Waiguru joined his group on October 26.
I can tell you that the voters will determine who gets which ticket. However, I want to emphasize that our UDA will have nominations that are free, fair, democratic, and verifiable. The people will make the final decision.
William Ruto, Deputy President
He said that the people, not he, would select who would run on the United Democratic Party Alliance ticket.
Ruto vowed his UDA party would ensure free and fair nominations in an emotional plea.
"I want to reassure you that the voters will choose who gets which ticket." "However, I want to emphasize that our UDA party will have free, fair, democratic, and verifiable nominations, and the people will decide," Ruto said.
Ngirici has been restless since Waiguru left the Jubilee Party for the hustling country, and the woman representative hinted that she could leave UDA and revive her Citizen Convention Party.
Despite her significant efforts to create the outfit in the area, the county MP has claimed that Waiguru's late admission into the fold is designed to usurp her spot inside the DP's camp.
