Independent candidate Wangui Ngirici has said that she will challenge Anne Waiguru’s win in the just completed Kirinyaga Gubernatorial race.
Speaking during a church service on Sunday, Ngirici said that the gubernatorial votes were rigged and “God is revealing slowly by slowly what went down.”
“I am not bitter with anybody, I am only going to follow through and make sure the will of the people will not be subverted. We are going to go on, we will make a petition,” she said.
The gubernatorial hopeful added that she has enough evidence that approximately 51,000 votes were rigged in favour of UDA’s Waiguru.
Ngirici expressed optimism that God’s justice will be in her favour, urging supporters not to pity her.
“I want to tell my supporters to keep calm because I know this county supported me and people believe that there is democracy in Kenya, I also believe so. Let’s keep praying…. Don’t call me to say sorry, tell me Christ liveth,” Ngirici said.
Waiguru and Ngirici’s quest for Kirinyaga governorship was a heated race, marred with accusations of rigging from both parties. This even prompted the IEBC to repeat vote tallying in one constituency.
On Friday, IEBC declared Waiguru the Governor-elect, after she garnered 113,088 votes against Ngirici who had 105,677 votes.
