Friday, February 25, 2022 – It appears the Sagana III meeting did not go as Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja expected.
After the politically charged meeting, where President Uhuru Kenyatta endorsed ODM Leader Raila Odinga for president as he castigated his Deputy, William Ruto, calling him a thief and liar who is incapable of leading the country, a number of Jubilee top guns have dumped Jubilee for Ruto’s Hustler Movement.
After Betty Maina, a staunch Jubilee supporter dumped Uhuru, Nyandarua Senator Mwangi Githiomi has followed suit.
The Senator was welcomed to the Hustler Nation by Deputy President William Ruto at his Official Karen Residence.
The DP Welcomed the Senator, saying his Hustler Nation camp is now growing bigger and better.
“Growing bigger and better. Welcoming Nyandarua Senator Hon. Mwangi Githiomi to the Hustler Nation,” the DP tweeted.
Leaders present during his welcoming to the UDA included Muang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata. Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Kandara MP Alice Wahome and Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki.
“Karibu to UDA – Kazi ni Kazi Nyandarua Senator Hon Sen Mwangi Githiomi. The seasoned politician decamped today. The Hustler Nation is growing by day,” Nyoro welcomed the Senator.
The DP has been the beneficiary of many Mt Kenya leaders who have moved to his camp.
The DP is keen on strengthening his Mt Kenya support base which was a key base in the 2017 polls while deputising President Uhuru Kenyatta.
He has camped in the region in a bid to win their support even as Raila makes efforts to get a portion of the vote-rich region with the help of Uhuru.
