KOT Reactions After Waiguru’s Landslide Win in Kirinyaga

April 25, 2017

Former Devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru is set for a big win in Kirinyaga County.

Provisional results as of Tuesday morning had her leading the race by nearly 20,000 votes. These are however official results from Jubilee. Unofficial results from the ground have her way ahead with nearly 30,000 votes between her and her closest rival Joseph Gitari, who is the current Kirinyaga Central Member of Parliament.

Incumbent Governor Joseph Ndathi is set for a third place finish.

Many Kenyans on Twitter are not impressed with Kirinyaga people for voting in someone who has hit corruption-related headlines than anyone else in the recent past.

While Waiguru may have won round one, she will still face some stiff opposition from Martha Karua who is running on a Narc-Kenya ticket in August.

UPDATE: With 99% of the votes counted, these are the results.

Waiguru: 102,927

Gitari: 44,745

Ndathi: 19,078
