Kirinyaga County Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici's running mate, Eliud Wanjau has dismissed as unfounded rumors claims that he was reportedly assaulted by the politician's husband, Andrew Ngirici.

Wanjau, while addressing residents of South Ngariama area of Murinduko ward in Mwea constituency, noted that the propaganda is reportedly being spread by their opponents' supporters who have since sensed defeat.

He added that there is no rift between him and his boss.

The allegations have, however, been circulating in various social media platforms in the recent past.

"They are claiming that I was beaten senseless and my teeth knocked out. Do I look like there are some of my teeth missing?" Wanjau asked residents.

He further urged Kirinyaga county residents to avoid electing leaders who have no vision to steer development in the agricultural rich county and instead are basing their politics on propaganda.

He urged them not to fall for their such tricks.

"Why would entrust leadership of our county to such people who have no agenda?" He posed.

The former KRA Commissioner told the residents that if elected, the government of Wangui Ngirici will ensure that South Ngariama residents will receive their title deeds, a process that has delayed for years.

He noted that their government will bring to an end politicization of the issue of title deeds in the area.

"Your decision to elect us on Tuesday next week will take you close to your title deeds. We will work with the National Ministry of Land to ensure that you receive them soonest time possible," he said.

On her part, Ngirici confirmed Wanjau's message on the issuance of title deeds.

"As long as I am the governor, you won't be required to even pay a cent, you will receive your title deeds because it is your right," she said

She also assured residents that if elected, her government will end various challenges faced in the ECDE department.

Ngirici, who is vying on an independent ticket, and the incumbent Governor Ann Waiguru of UDA are the front runners in the gubernatorial race.

Others in the race to occupy the Kutus County Headquarter office include Jubilee flag bearer and current senator Charles Kibiru, Business man Comba Ndau of KADU Asili, former Governor Joseph Ndathi among others.

The candidates have been traversing the county in a bid to secure majority of votes from the registered 376,137 voters in Kirinyaga County.
