Thursday, December 17, 2020 –MP Ngunjiri Wambugu of Nyeri has congratulated DP William Ruto’s team for smashing all the main by-elections records concluded recently.
Through his Twitter handle, Wambugu on Thursday December 17th said the Tangatanga team had done quite well in the mini-polls which they beat Raila/Uhuru candidates’ hands down.
“I take this opportunity to congratulate #TangaTanga for their victory in the Msambweni Parliamentary By-Election, as well as the Gaturi and Lakeview County Assembly by-elections.
“As a proud member of the Jubilee Party, I accept that we supported the candidates who have lost this time,” he said.
Deputy President William Ruto’s independent candidate Feisal Bader Abdallah won with a big margin beating Orange Democratic Movement Party candidate Omar Boga to become the next MP Msambweni Constituency.
Though he looked disappointed, Wambugu noted that their Jubilee’s Kieleweke wing had performed dismally leaving Ruto to have a field day.
“We have lost in this particular battle. We have also watched your performance both in the campaign, turning out the vote, and protecting it.”
“Your GOTV was especially on point. Your propaganda machinery was also very impressive. You have done an absolutely fantastic job and our Jubilee candidates in Gaturi and Lakeview Wards, as well as the #handshake candidate in Msambweni (who even took a photo with our Party Leader President #UhuruKenyatta), fairly lost to a much better organised team,” he added.
The MP then concluded by saying they had watched keenly, learnt a lesson and ready to fight another day.
