Ms Waiguru said a wind of political change has hit central Kenya under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta, throwing open the region’s choice of a presidential candidate in the 2022 General Election.

“We discussed some serious politics. Of course we first settled the history we had together,” Waiguru said during the interview.
