Wangui Ngirici has pledged to move to court to challenge the election of Anne Waiguru in the just concluded Kirinyaga Governor's race.

Ngirici who was contesting the seat on an Independent ticket decried that she had been rigged out of victory.

“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 stated.

According to the gubernatorial hopeful, 51,000 votes were rigged in favour of her arch-rival who was contesting on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

“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,” she added.

Ngirici was speaking during a church service on Sunday, August 14, 2022.

Ngirici floored by Waiguru

Ngirici's allegations come barely days after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries (IEBC) commission declared Waguru as the newly elected Governor.

In the contest, Waiguru floored Ngirici after she garnered 113,088 votes against Ngirici's 105,677 votes.
