Kihika and Ngunjiri have been political enemies since they contested for the TNA ticket for the Bahati parliamentary seat during the 2013 polls

A close source to the Bahati MP revealed that the current war of words between the two does not even relate to the Solai dam tragedy but the 2022 politics.

According to the source, who sought anonymity, Kihika is bitter after Deputy President allegedly dumped her and settled on Ngunjiri as his point man in Nakuru ahead of the 2022 duel.

“Kihika is bitter because Ruto has already dumped her and is now working with Ngunjiri,” said the source.

“Ruto does not want to work with her and that is why she is fighting the person Ruto has chosen,’’ he added.

The source further revealed that Ruto dumped Kihika after he fell out with businessman Sam Mburu who is Kihika’s lover.
