Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru has now vowed to announce her next course of action following her loss in the UDA party nominations. The lawmaker thanked her supporters for their continued support and assured them that everything is under control.

"I want to thank my supporters for their continued support as I assure them that all is well. I will issue a comprehensive statement on my next course of action after the Easter holiday," she posted.

Waruguru, who was eyeing the Laikipia East parliamentary seat on a UDA ticket, was among the bigwigs who were defeated in the UDA primaries.

The legislator was beaten to the UDA party ticket by the incumbent Laikipia East MP Amin Deddy Mohamed. The soft-spoken MP garnered 12,743 votes against the Woman Rep's 5,595 votes.

It is still not clear whether Waruguru will lodge a formal complaint to the UDA party having disputed the results of the nominations or whether she will resort to vying for the seat on an Independent ticket.
