UDA  officials from  Kirinyaga County are crying foul after they were denied access by the government  to hold a public rally  at Wanguru International stadium .

Had the official been granted permission party leader William Ruto would have used the venue to popularize his presidential  ambition this Saturday .

Led by Governor Anne Waiguru ,the officials accused the government of applying double standards while authorizing those to use the  stadium.

Some  of the UDA members  after they addressed a press  conference  at the Destiny hotel , Sagana this afternoon protesting the denial to host their party boss William Ruto at the Wanguru International stadium , Mwea ,this Saturday

“Just late last year , we saw  Interior PS Karanja Kibicho and Andrew Ngirici (husband to area woman Rep Wangui Ngirici and her  gubernatorial seat  competitor ) use  the venue  to issue driving licenses  and the same venue was used to host last year’s Mashujaa day celebrations  only for our party to be denied access  on  flimsy claims that it was still under construction ,”Waiguru said.

Accompanied by the Gichugu  MP Gichimu Githinji , Assembly Majority   leader Kamau Murango and several MCAs , Waiguru  said after they made an application to use the stadium this Saturday , the response was negative  .

She said the ministry of Culture and Sports claimed the venue was still undergoing finishing touches yet those who appear to be politically correct were expressly using the facility.

Waiguru said regardless of this unfortunate scenario, the scheduled rally will still take place   at another venue within Mwea.

She claimed her party was being denied the venue due to its popularity in the area but regardless of this unfortunate situation William Ruto remains the  people’s choice .

The governor who caused  jitters last year after she ditched Jubilee to join UDA said her party boss was being frustrated left right after  his opponents realized  they were not making  any headways .

“UDA  is the party of the moment and any one against  its tide risks being  swept away hence the continued frustrations of its activities   since  the so called  Azimio is a sponsored project which  Kenyans have rejected in totality ,”she said .

Briefing the media at the Destination Hotel , Sagana this afternoon, Waiguru said the Saturday rally will proceed as planned and said the more  the government continued to frustrate the party the more popular Ruto was becoming  with the  electorate .

The stadium was built  was built in a record  one year and  is a state of the arts facility second to none in mt Kenya region .
