Wednesday June 10, 2020 – Laikipia Women Representative, Catherine Waruguru, surprised her electorate when she met former Prime Minister Raila Odinga at his Capitol Hill offices in Nairobi.
Waruguru, one of the key lieutenants of Deputy President William Ruto, spoke to a local daily and revealed why she decided to meet Baba.
She said she decided to meet Raila to lobby for development in Laikipia County.
“The next general election is not coming tomorrow.”
“I have switched gears to lobby for development and service delivery to Laikipians,” she said.
Waruguru also said that she was not under any form of duress neither was she coerced by anyone to shift her political allegiance to Raila or President Kenyatta, insisting that she was doing so for the good of the people of Laikipia County.
“As American author Patience Johnson once stated that ‘in politics, there are no permanent friends, no permanent enemies but permanent interests’, and in my context at least, this rings true,” she said.
