Jubilee team in Kirinyaga County raised sh51.9 million shillings towards President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election campaign in a record two days.
The team was led by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
This was just hours before NASA Presidential candidate Raila Odinga withdrew his candidature in the repeat polls.
The Governor said even her MCA’s contributed generously just to see Uhuru re-elected.
“We have sacrificed ourselves to raise this amount because we want the campaigns for our President in this region to be successful,” she told Jubilee supporters in Kutus on Tuesday as told by Nairobi News.
So serious are the campaigns for Uhuru, noted Waiguru, that her political nemesis immediate former governor Joseph Ndathi and former Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari came together to fundraise.
“Who would have imagined that my predecessor, Joseph Ndathi and former Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari and myself would come together for a common purpose?” asked Waiguru.
They are targeting a 99 per cent voter turnout on October 26 should it be ruled that the polls will still continue.
