After congratulating PURITY NGIRICI, who lost to ANNE WAIGURU, MARTHA KARUA turned around and left with egg on her face.

Martha Karua, the running mate for the Azimio One Kenya Alliance, had egg on her face after congratulating a loser in the Kirinyaga county governor’s race.

Karua, Raila Odinga’s deputy, congratulated independent candidate Purity Ngirici on her defeat against Anne Waiguru of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Congratulations @WanguiNgirici, your victory is crucial for the #kenyaelections2022, said Karua.

With 113,088 votes against Ngirici’s 109,433 votes, Waiguru won the seat.

Ngirici asserted that 6,000 extra votes were cast for Waiguru in the Mwea constituency.

Waiguru had previously claimed that she had defeated the departing woman representative with more than 15,000 voters in the district.

Security was increased as tensions rose throughout the day as Ngirici supporters obstructed public transportation along the Kutus-Kerugoya road.

The supporters once surrounded a county government car they said was carrying election materials.
