Waiguru’s comments come days after Ngirici told Waiguru to tread carefully in the party as she was just a new comer.
Ngirici said she helped build the party from scratch and is therefore versed with its struggles.
“Those who think that they have direct access to UDA should hold their horses because they are yet to go past the kitchen door. They can’t just come in until I welcome them,” she said.
However, Waiguru said she shall not be cowed and will continue mounting an aggressive campaign for herself and for Deputy President William Ruto.
“We shall stay put, not be cowed and neither entertain toxic politics to dampen our spirits. We shall remain focused and sell our agenda to the people and what we have achieved in the course of our leadership.”
Waiguru noted that she will only listen to the voice of the public and will adhere to what it shall dictate.
“After months of listening to the ground and thorough consultation, I joined UDA because the people wanted me there. I remain committed to walk with them even as I continue seeking their votes.”
Waiguru dismissed as false, reports circulating on social media that Ruto has called off his Kirinyaga trip.
“Those are malicious reports. We are ready to welcome him in Kirinyaga and we want as many county residents to show up so that we can show support to him.”
This comes days after Andrew Ngirici, Wangui’s husband, said he will mobilise her supporters to welcome Ruto.
