Pastors shift allegiance to Ngirici
The Mt Kenya Yes Pastors Forum has shifted its allegiance from the Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru to her rival Wangui Ngirici.
The Forum claimed Waiguru had declined to face reality on the ground and opted to stay aloof .
Through its chairman Archbishop Dr Daniel Njagi , the Forum accused Waiguru of having neglected the very voters who had put her to power in August 2017.
“Despite our numerous attempts to reach Waiguru , she has continued to stay aloof instead of coming down to be with the people who overwhelmingly voted for her . It is on this ground that we have from this morning shifted our allegiance and support to her for Wangui ,”the Cleric said.
In a hastily convened press conference at the Sifa Gardens Resort , Kutus town the Forum said it would rather work with Wangui whose presence has been felt right at the grass roots .
Added the Cleric “ since Waiguru does not see the need to interact with the people at the grassroots to understand their tribulations and sufferings , like Wangui we have during this moment when she requires our massive support decided to abandon her ,”.
The Forum had previously worked for Waiguru until last night when she allegedly accused it of supporting Azimio , a move she was grievously opposed to .
